Lady Helen Finds Her Song by Jennifer Moore

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: 5 Stars

India has always sounded so exotic, especially from the perspective of an English lady during the 1800s. The beautiful, and sometimes horrifying, imagery that is described in this book is very vivid and caused me to picture it all so clearly. Add to that some great, yet flawed, characters, and a charming story is born! 

Lady Helen is accompanying her mother and step-father to India and has a great attitude to change. She is willing to learn, adapt, and accept the customs and people around her. I find that to be a refreshing view from a refined lady. Lady Helen is very likable and the Captain and the Lieutenant couldn't agree with me more. Both men are delightful and each has imperfections to overcome, but those qualities are what really draw me to them and it makes me like them all the more.  

The adventures, mishaps, and relationships in the story are very engaging and I couldn't read it fast enough. I love a good, clean romance, as well as strong family ties. There are a few twists that surprised me, but overall, it is a satisfying and gentle read. The pacing is spot on, as things keep moving, but not so fast that the reader can't get to know the characters. I can't wait for more!

Content: mild romance; mild violence and moments of peril. Clean!
