Summary

Spring 1813

The exotic splendors of India are legendary, and the colorful sights of her new home in Calcutta immediately captivate eighteen-year-old Lady Helen Poulter. Whereas many of her fellow British expatriates despise the culture they see as barbaric, Helen sees excitement in the unusual locale. It is in this vibrant, bustling city that she finds a kindred soul in Captain Michael Rhodes, an Englishman whose lifelong love of India runs deep. Their friendship quickly grows, yet despite their undeniable connection, she could never think of Captain Rhodes as more than a dear friend.

Her love, in truth, has been captured by dashing British Lieutenant Arthur Bancroft. This handsome soldier represents the embodiment of all she's dreamed of in a husband. Preoccupied by her growing affections, Helen never dreams that beneath the glamor of the city, hostilities are reaching a boiling point. When battle ultimately threatens both of the men in her life, she must make a choice: pursue the man who symbolizes her British past, or let herself love a man who promises an unknown future in the land she loves. But amid the casualties of war, will her declaration of love come too late?

My Review

LADY HELEN FINDS HER SONG was a beautiful story set in historical India about a woman who is experiencing the sights and sounds of a new country and her conflicting emotions towards two different men. It was a sweet and heartfelt story and enjoyable from beginning to end!

I really enjoyed the setting of this story! There are so few historical romances set in England-occupied India, that it gives an automatic uniqueness. I felt immersed in this historical India with its customs and people and also the way the heroine experiences this country as it is new to her. I loved the native words used here and there and how well the opposing views of the English would have been towards the country and their natives.

I loved these characters! Lady Helen had a natural curiosity about her, an intelligent mind, and a genuine sweetness. She is still finding herself and who she will become giving her a lack of confidence in some circumstances. All of this made for a wonderful story as she observes India and gets to know others. Captain Rhodes was an interesting counter to Helen. He is stalwart and true. Old-fashioned words for an old-fashioned gentleman. He has experienced much and is mature and responsible, but has a tenderness that is perfect for Helen. He has had his troubles, which brought a different aspect to the story and added depth. Their conversations and scenes flowed so well and I loved how the romance slowly develops - it almost creeps up on Helen without her knowledge.

For readers who enjoy steady-paced stories that are heartfelt and sweet, this is a must read! 

Content: Some innuendo and violence, but clean.
