About the Book
The British aristocracy is an inflexible judge. And for Amala, a lovely young Indian woman, that judgment is most keenly felt. Raised from a child by the wealthy Hepworth family following the murder of her parents, Amala grew up alongside the Hepworth's own daughter, Katarina, and was loved as both sister and daughter. The family is part of the charmed circle of the upper class, but Amala's place in society is tenuous. As an Indian woman, her life is marked by a sense of otherness and voices of prejudice. So when she embarks upon a sweet acquaintance with Henry Breckenridge, a white Englishman, Amala is both elated and terrified. She knows first-hand the opposition that an interracial couple would face, and courtship with Henry could destroy his standing in society.
Determined to spare the reputations of both Henry and her sister Katarina, Amala flees England with the hope that an extended trip will allow her time to heal her broken heart. But she never imagined the repercussions of that decision, and the heartbreak awaiting her. For when she returns to England, she finds those she holds dear facing unparalleled devastation. And now it is her love that holds the key to healing a broken family .
About the Author
Anita Stansfield has more than fifty published books and is the recipient of many awards, including two lifetime achievement awards. Her books go far beyond bein an enjoyable, memorable story. Anita resonates particularly well with a broad range of devoted readers because of her sensitive and insightful examination of contemporary issues that are faced by many of those readers, even when her venue is a historical romance, readers come away from her compelling stories equipped with new ideas about how to enrich their own lives, regardless of their circumstances.
Anita was born and raised in Provo, Utah. She is the mother of five and has a growing number of grandchildren. She also writes for the general trade market under the name Elizabeth D. Michaels.
I have always been fascinated with stories that take place in India or have characters that visit or are from India. I also am a huge fan of Anita Stansfield novels. So when given the chance to read and review Color of Love, I took the opportunity. Stansfield has written a delightfully engaging historical romance. Her characters come to life as she tells the story of an Indian young woman, Amala, raised by an English family after her own family is killed when she is a child. But although she is loved by her own family, at social gatherings she is always on the outskirts, not being completely accepted because of the color of her skin. And so Amala decides there is no hope for love and romance. But is there? And will Amala take a chance or run so there will be no devastating disaster? I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy the work of Anita Stansfield, as well as historical romance.
