Book Details:

Spring 1813
The exotic splendors of India are legendary, and the colorful sights of her new home in Calcutta immediately captivate eighteen-year-old Lady Helen Poulter. Whereas many of her fellow British expatriates despise the culture they see as barbaric, Helen sees excitement in the unusual locale. It is in this vibrant, bustling city that she finds a kindred soul in Captain Michael Rhodes, an Englishman whose lifelong love of India runs deep. Their friendship quickly grows, yet despite their undeniable connection, she could never think of Captain Rhodes as more than a dear friend.

Her love, in truth, has been captured by dashing British Lieutenant Arthur Bancroft. This handsome soldier represents the embodiment of all she's dreamed of in a husband. Preoccupied by her growing affections, Helen never dreams that beneath the glamor of the city, hostilities are reaching a boiling point. When battle ultimately threatens both of the men in her life, she must make a choice: pursue the man who symbolizes her British past, or let herself love a man who promises an unknown future in the land she loves. But amid the casualties of war, will her declaration of love come too late?

My Review:
This clean Regency romance takes place in India in the Spring of 1813. Lady Helen Poulter has traveled to India with her mother Lady Patricia and her new stepfather Brigadier -General Jim Stackhouse.The General has been assigned to take over a military assignment and eighteen year old Helen goes along and ends up experiencing many new things. I loved Helen's open mind with coming to a new country and willing to learn about India and it's customs. The author so beautifully displays, in great detail, the sights, sounds, and tastes that Helen and her family experience in India. This is something that Jennifer Moore does so well in her writing.

The main character, Helen, is one that you love from the start. You can clearly see why the men in this book are vying for her attention, if only Helen could see it herself. Her kind and loving nature makes her a beloved character. Early on in the book you understand where the title of the book comes from. Lady Helen at one point explains to her new friend, Captain Michael Rhodes, that she has created a song on the piano for every member of her family that displayed their personalities. When asked about her own song, Helen replies, "I do not know Captain. I think it is the reason I wished to come to India. To find my song." This moment in the story actually brought tears to my eyes as I thought of how all of us wish to find out own songs. The beauty of this story is how a certain man does exactly that. 

Speaking of men, there is somewhat of a love triangle with two men, Captain Rhodes and  Lieutenant Arthur Bancroft. They both are immediately attracted to Helen and work hard at getting to know her and win her over. One is more sincere than the other, and that man is the one that gets to know the real Helen. The love story is actually very sweet as both people have to conquer their doubts and fears in order to open up their hearts enough to love. Definitely sigh worthy material here.

This novel is for any reader who loves Regency Romance, especially if they like a different setting than England. Older teens and adults will enjoy being swept away in the wonders found in India, even when war comes, and marvel in the process of Helen finding herself and falling in love.
