Veiled At Midnight by Christine Lindsay

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?

My review:

  This has been a fascinating series to read. When the author contacted me about reviewing the series, she assured me that men enjoy these books as well as women, and she was correct.

 The first two books took place within a few years of each other time-wise. This third and final book takes place several years after the first two. The main character in this book is an adult and was a small child in the other two books.

  Of the three books, I think I enjoyed this one the most. I really liked the character Cam and enjoyed seeing where the author took her story. And although the series isn't mystery/suspense, there is a lot of suspense and drama in the books, and this one seems to have the most. Though many of the characters are fictional, the events and some of the characters are not. I thoroughly enjoyed this final book in the trilogy, and recommend the whole series to lovers of historical fiction,
