Christine Lindsay writes historical inspirational novels with strong love stories, and has recently had her first non-fiction book published. She takes pride in her Irish roots. Her great grandfather and grandfather worked as riveters in the Belfast shipyard, one of those ships her ancestors helped build was the Titanic.

Stories of ancestors who served in the British Cavalry in India that seeded Christine’s long-time fascination with the British Raj and became the stimulus for her multi-award-winning series Twilight of the British Raj.

But it was her true-life story as a birth-mom (a woman who relinquished her baby to adoption) that inspired her to write in the first place. Read her true-life memoir in Finding Sarah Finding Me.

Probably because my parents and grandparents' memories are so real to me. My husband's dad actually served in the navy during the Second World War, so one day I'd love to incorporate some of his history into a book. That's why my British Raj trilogy is so exciting to me as it features history during this specific era and really demonstrates the end of the British Empire. (less)

ENCOURAGEMENT FOR YOU TODAY

Thanks for dropping by, here's a little inspiration to encourage you today.







The above photo is of our little sheltie dog Zoey. She's such a little princess in our house. I remember her walking along on a pretty trail one summer a few years back. As she ran ahead of my husband and me, she kept stopping to look back to us for directions.

Londonderry Dreaming Chapter One (Religion & Spirituality)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:38PM
Description: LONDONDERRY DREAMING Acclaimed New York artist, Naomi Boyd, and music therapist, Keith Wilson, loved one another five years ago, until her grandfather with his influence over Naomi separated them. That root of bitterness keeps them apart until a letter from Keith’s grandmother, Ruth, draws Naomi to Londonderry to find she’s too late. Ruth has passed on. After the death of his beloved grandmother, Keith has also come to Londonderry only to open the door to his past…Naomi...beautiful as ever, the girl who broke his heart. A mysterious painting in Ruth’s attic brings up questions about their grandparents’ entwined past and their own broken romance. But more comfortable with the unspoken languages of art and music, Naomi and Keith find it difficult to share their old hurts and true feelings. Will the majestic coastline of Northern Ireland inspire them to speak the words to bring peace to their grandparents’ memory and to rekindle love?

Laine takes a nursing position at a plantation in the jungle, only to discover that her former fiancé is the owner…but fun-loving Laine refuses to let Adam crush her heart like he had years ago. Eshana, captured by her traditional uncle and forced once more into the harsh Hindu customs of mourning, doubts freedom will ever be hers again, much less the forbidden love that had begun to flower. Amid cyclones, epidemics, and clashing faiths, will the love of the True Master give hope to these searching hearts?

Description: VEILED AT MIDNIGHT—Book 3 of the series Twilight of the British Raj As the British Empire comes to an end, 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 has separated the country these three love…but can they find their true homes before it separates them forever?
