TWO BOOKS WON THE VOTE






SHADOWED IN SILK
By: Christine Lindsay
Publisher: WhiteFire Publishing
 Short Summary: She was invisible to those who should have loved her.
After the Great War, Abby Fraser returns to India with her small son, where
her husband is stationed with the British army. She has longed to go home to
the land of glittering palaces and veiled women . . . but Nick has become a
cruel stranger. It will take more than her American pluck to survive.

Major Geoff Richards, broken over the loss of so many of his men in the
trenches of France, returns to his cavalry post in Amritsar. But his faith
does little to help him understand the ruthlessness of his British peers
toward the Indian people he loves. Nor does it explain how he is to protect
Abby Fraser and her child from the husband who mistreats them.

Amid political unrest, inhospitable deserts, and Russian spies, tensions
rise in India as the people cry for the freedom espoused by Gandhi. Caught
between their own ideals and duty, Geoff and Abby stumble into sinister
secrets . . . secrets that will thrust them out of the shadows and straight
into the fire of revolution.







STEALING JAKE
By: Pam Hillman
Publisher: Tyndale House

Short Summary: When Livy O'Brien spies a young boy jostling a man walking
along the boardwalk, she recognizes the act for what it is. After all, she
used to be known as Light-fingered Livy. But that was before she put her
past behind her and moved to the growing town of Chestnut, Illinois, where
she's helping to run an orphanage. Now she'll do almost anything to protect
the street kids like herself.

Sheriff's deputy Jake Russell had no idea what he was in for when he ran
into Livy--literally--while chasing down a pickpocket. With a rash of
robberies and a growing number of street kids in town--as well as a loan on
the family farm that needs to be paid off--Jake doesn't have time to pursue
a girl. Still, he can't seem to get Livy out of his mind. He wants to get to
know her better . . . but Livy isn't willing to trust any man, especially
not a lawman.

I'll Tell you about FEBRUARY'S VOTE NEXT TIME!!
