Read full description of the books Shadow of the Moon:Born in India and orphaned at an early age, Winter Ballasteros is brought up in England but has longed to return to the land of her birth. When she is betrothed to the debauched Conway Barton, the grasping Commissioner of Lunjore, who is many years her senior, a handsome young officer, Captain Alex Randall, is sent by the Commissioner to escort his betrothed to India. Captain Randall is reluctant to be involved as he realizes the Commissioner to be no fit husband for a seventeen year old girl. In addition, Captain Randall is sensitive to the potentially dangerous feelings of unrest that seem to be sweeping India, as its native population begins to chafe under the insensitive rule of its colonial masters.
