1800 – India
A Web of Treacherous Deceit, and a Silk Heiress Determined to Find Love in the Land She Calls Home.
JACE BUCKLEY, the dashing British officer, has promised to report to Kingscote, bringing with him news of Coral Kendall’s missing adopted son. Coral is overjoyed, but her first priority is a mission school for the untouchables on the silk plantation—and the handsome Dr. Ethan Boswell has committed to fulfill Coral’s dream.
Coral has long delayed choosing between two very different men, but her impending decision is overshadowed by mysterious threats against her and the school Ethan has struggled to build. When the precious Hindi scripture portions given to her by William Carey are found in ashes on the floor of her room, Coral realizes that she must somehow bridge the cultural dissension—before it destroys Kingscote.
Danger follows Jace in his search for Coral’s abducted son, and the boy’s mysterious roots leave Jace entangled in a web of treacherous deceit. Will Jace return to Kingscote in time to claim the woman he loves? Or will the flames of hate destroy all in its path?
