5 stars~***** Absolutely Captivating! In Captured by Moonlight, Christine Lindsay sweeps us away to the exotic, hauntingly beautiful land of India -- of women in colorful saris, mango, coconut, and banana groves, plantations where elephants, tigers, and leopards roam in the nearby jungles -- and the scent of spices, jasmine, and mimosa permeating the air. Amidst all of the majestic beauty, however, lie many dangers...of religious and political unrest, life threatening storms, and the dreaded cholera. Eshana, a beautiful, young widow, only wishes to serve the Lord and the needy women in the mission house, and her best friend, Laine, an English nurse, is masking her broken heart by administering healing to others. Laine is caught disobeying the rules and is sent to a plantation in Madras to work with a missionary doctor and his sister who treat cholera victims. Madras, where her heart had been shattered to pieces after the war by her first love -- Madras, a place she has no desire to return to -- ever. Once there she encounters many dangers, not the least of which include dangers of the heart as two men vie for her love, a cholera outbreak, and a life threatening storm. And in the beautiful, romantic setting of white sand-filled beaches and moonlit nights, is it even possible that Laine's heart might be captured by love once again? What secrets is the owner of the plantation hiding in the surrounding outbuildings...and what of Eshana, who has fallen into sinister hands? Will Laine and the handsome Sikh doctor who has fallen in love with Eshana find her before it's too late? I have ten authors who are my favs...with Shadowed in Silk--Book One and Captured by Moonlight--Book Two, Christine Lindsay has made it into my top five! I was captivated from the very first chapter of this exciting sequel with its unpredictable storyline which may easily be read as a stand alone. I loved the courageous characters--especially their dedication to put others first, and oh, the romance made my toes curl, my eyes fill with tears, and left me with the goose bumps! The author's use of imagery was second to none, and I could see the beauty of India in her descriptive prose. On my fav list of 2013 goes Captured by Moonlight! Very nicely done, Ms. Lindsay!

Captured by Moonlight is the second installment to the Twilight of the British Raj series. I loved this book. A beautiful setting with rich historical details. I loved the characters of Laine and Adam. Such a wonderful story. 5 stars

I really enjoyed reading “Captured by Moonlight.” It was great to hear more of Laine’s story, but I especially liked hearing more of Eshana’s since she was one of my favorite character’s from book one. The beginning opened up exciting and instantly grabbed my attention. The momentum kept up for the majority of the read (with Laine living in the jungle it certainly brought some excitement!) and kept me turning pages even when I should have been asleep. I felt there wasn’t a lot of tension in the novel except from Eshana’s story. She blew me away in her devotion to the Lord and seeking Him during trials rather than giving up when she felt like it. Her cousin became a quick favorite for me as she interacted with Eshana. However I will admit that I was not quite as satisfied with her ending as I was Laine’s. I wanted a little more, but will not say of what since I don’t want to spoil it. This is another novel in the Twilight of the British Raj series that I would recommend to anyone who likes a romantic adventure! *(I received this novel from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Captured by Moonlight is the story of Laine and Eshana, two friends who must let go of their dreams and ambitions and mend deep wounds before they can love again. I hung on to every sound of the jungle, every scent of the market, every glimmer of the palaces and shadow among the ruins in this British Raj novel. The two friends' separate journeys, though winding and strewn with obstacles, read like poetry. Good-humored Laine and stubborn, yet sensitive Eshana become like living people whom you trust, care for, and want to spend time with. Christine Lindsay is a master of her craft. India in the late 1940's, searching for its true identity, mirrors the characters' plight, the nurses and soldiers struggling to move on with their lives after the war. But change beckons all, and even the sacred Hindu tradition of banishing widows from the family gives way to a mother and father's love for their daughter. The vibrant writing aside, Christine Lindsay's confident handle on the time period aside, the swiftly changing scenes and Laine and Eshana's parallel storylines make Captured by Moonlight a gripping read.

The very talented author, Christine Lindsay, has once again penned a lovely, breathtaking novel. Just when you'd think she couldn't expand on the richness of an exotic place or time period or the grace of characters embracing Christ's love as she has in her first novel SHADOWED IN SILK, Ms. Lindsay has a special treat in CAPTURED BY MOONLIGHT. Take a trip down history's lane only to discover the relevance Ms. Lindsay shares with today's readers.

Christine Lindsay captured the essence of living in India as a member of the oppressed cast. Her story was poignant and yet upbeat. I could feel the rain and breeze, and I could smell the food cooking. I want to read more of her work.

This story hooked me from the very beginning and I had trouble putting it down. As I read the descriptions of Colonial India I began to feel as if I knew the country. Christine Lindsay has captured the atmosphere of the caste system, the harshness of the law, and the richness and splendor of the affluent. I had never heard of the “untouchables” and my heart bled at the thought of young girls being forced into marriage to a Hindu god.    The book is full of tension, excitement and survival, well seasoned with romance. The reader faces the challenge of faith working out in the most difficult of situations.    Although I was given this book by the author for an honest opinion, I have no hesitation in awarding it 5/5 stars.

This is the second book in this series that I have read, and equally amazing, I loved it. We are in India, the age of Gandhi, and just after WW1. The descriptions of the beauty of the Country, made me feel like I was there. Watching the beautiful birds, and smelling the glorious flowers. We do see the differences in people living in the Caste system. Fine if you are at the top, but who wants to be the untouchable? To give aid and comfort to one so low, is punishable by law. I asked an Indian Dr once about the Caste System...he loved it, said it was necessary...guess where he was in it? Of course, Laine Harkness and her friend Eshana, don't let the law trouble them when they felt called to help an unfortunate girl. How the things that were happening to her could be allowed...ugh! They enlist Dr Jai, in their need for medical help for the girl. Sparks fly between Eshana and Dr Jai, but she is a Christian and he a Sikh. Then there is Lani who loved Adam with her whole heart, but he was killed in the war. Or was he?? Here is a man do indebeted to another, for saving his life, that he has given up his own for the others sake. You will become so enraptured with this story, even when it is finished you crave more. I for one never wanted it to end. It is wonderful! I received this book from the Author, and was not required to give a positive review.

Captured by Moonlight is an excellent journey! It starts in a way that to me was a little confusing and hard to figure out, but by page two it had grabbed my full attention and wouldn't let go!!! From one amazing action packed scene to the next Captured by Moonlight is filled with intrigue from start to finish. I enjoyed learning of the great Christians from India and many of their works. Many of these characters are dear to my heart and the suspense was woven beautifully by Christine's way of writing. Within these pages you will learn about what females have suffered in India, how, though you may be imprisoned, Jesus will always set you free but in His way and His perfect timing, and that love isn't deserved but freely given all you need to do is accept it. Many scenes are beautifully written and many things are wonderfully expressed. I highly recommend you read Captured by Moonlight. It has made it to my Favorite Books list, it may just make it to yours. ;) I have always wanted to read Shadowed in Silk (the first installment of this series), but now it's a must! I'll have to go back and dive into Christine Lindsay's previous writings :) My songs for Captured by Moonlight are: "Down in Zanzibar" by Rhapsody Quintet, "Tchaikovsky - Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-Flat Minor, Op. 23: Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-Flat Minor: I. Allegro non troppo e molto maestoso - Allegro con spirito" by Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra, "As the Deer" by Daywind Studio Musicians, "Theme From Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto" by Ray Conniff & His Orchestra & Chorus, "Untitled Hymn (Come To Jesus)" by Chris Rice, "Carried Away By Love" by Peter Deiwick & Marla McLean, and "Someone Handed Me The Moon" by Marla McLean Romans 6:4 ~ASC Book Reviews

Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite Laine and her friend Eshana flee south after a rescue they planned did not go as they wanted. But never did Laine imagine she would run into her former fiancé. Imagine Laine’s surprise when she starts her new nursing job at the jungle plantation and finds that Adam is the owner! And what is Adam’s reaction when he sees Laine again? Regardless of their past, Laine is now working there, along with Eshana, and she is determined that Adam will not keep her from doing the job she is here to do. Christine Lindsay again writes a story that captures the hearts and minds of readers from the very first page. She creates characters that are strong and believable and develop well throughout the story. I loved the heartwarming relationship between the two ladies, Laine’s spunky determination and boldness and how Eshana’s strong faith in the Lord carried the two through the difficulties and heartbreaks they had to face. I also appreciate Ms. Lindsay’s thorough research and vivid descriptions of historical India. I was not only entertained by the story, but I now have a better understanding of this era in historical India. This is not a light read at all; this story goes beyond that into the hardships and difficult situations people of India faced after WWI. What I like and enjoy about this author’s writing ability is that she weaves the difficult and good times together in a unique way and gives her readers a wonderful story that will not leave them even long after the book is finished. I highly recommend this story about life in historical India, and I recommend that you read the first book in this series as well, "Shadowed in Silk". You will enjoy the wonderful stories and will fall in love with the characters.

Captured by Moonlight by Christine Lindsay is an intriguing story of two women during the post-war days in India. Laine, a British nurse and Eshana, a native mission worker, are desparately trying to save young, pregnant temple girls while holding deep secrets within themselves. Ms. Lindsay weaves kidnapping, women on the run, capture, and the hunt into a book you won’t be able to put down. The hunt is not just for the captured woman, but also a search for the true God. The picture of faith versus hopelessness is portrayed so beautifully throughout the story. This is definitely a worthwhile read.

This was a wonderful tale of four people searching and finding hope in India. This story caught my attention from the first page on. It did not let up. From poverty streets, kidnappings, forbidden love, remnants of war, snake bites, cholera, cyclones, etc. I was very caught up in these character lives. I also learned more about India some of their religious customs and their time during the British Raj. Pick up this book, you will not be dissapointed. This is the second in a series but reads as a stand alone. I already have the first book so I will be reading it soon.
