Lady Helen Poulter journeys to India with her stepfather and mother. While other British find the culture barbaric, Lady Helen finds the culture, smells and sights of India fascinating and amazing. Lady Helen finds a friend in Captain Michael Rhodes who also shares a similar passion for the culture of India. Even though she finds comfort in Captain Rhodes, Helen is also interested in British Lieutenant Arthur Bancroft, who is everything she envisioned for a husband. Amidst a growing conflict between the natives and the British, will Helen figure out her heart?
Lady Helen Finds Her Song by Jennifer Moore is filled with adventure and the sights, smells, colors, dangers of India. Moore's descriptions of India remind me of the descriptions of the dangers and wildlife used by Kipling in the Jungle Book. She also weaves in beautiful colors, sounds and great descriptions of the religious culture. I love how the main character shows a deep respect for another culture and finds the beauty of it. Moore also describes the similarities between the British and Indian cultures. The main characters are very likeable and enjoyable. I greatly enjoyed this book and was amazed at the descriptive quality of the author to describe the scenes in her story. If you love clean regency romance and adventure, I highly suggest checking out Lady Helen Finds Her Song at your local library or buying it on Amazon.
