The British Empire is coming to an end with the Partition of India. As millions flee to the roads, caught up in the turbulent wake is Captain Cam Fraser, his sister Miriam, and the beautiful Indian Dassah. Cam has never been able to put Dassah from his mind, ever since the days when he played with the orphans at the mission as a boy. But a British officer and the aide to the last viceroy cannot marry a poor Indian woman, can he?
As this becomes clear to Dassah, she has no option but to run. Cam may hold her heart—but she cannot let him break it again.
Miriam rails against the separation of the land of her birth, but is Lieutenant Colonel Jack Sunderland her soulmate or a distraction from what God has called her to do?
The 1947 Partition of India has separated the country these three love…but can they find their true homes before it separates them forever?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
After my debut novel Shadowed in Silk was published in 2009, and won several literary awards, I had to decide either to write another book with a setting more marketable for the US audience, or stay true to my artistic self. I chose to believe in my story. I wrote Captured by Moonlight book 2 of the series which also won a few literary awards. Veiled at Midnight is the finale to that trilogy.
I’m extremely proud of this 3-book series. While it has garnered significant literary accolades, its setting seems to be passed over when readers are glancing through book lists. But when readers do pick it up and read it, they often write to me and tell me how refreshing it was for Christian fiction, and how much they loved it.
My readers fell in love with my characters from book 1, and seeing the various members of that group tell their own stories in each book has been fulfilling. Veiled at Midnight is special to me though, in that I was able to tie up all loose ends and bring the story to its final and satisfying close at the end of the Partition of India when the country of Pakistan was created, and when the British Empire came to an end.
