Book Description:
“Faith and purpose collide in the exotic setting of this powerful love story. Through mysterious circumstances, Erica Tanner meets her late sister’s only child, Betul. Within hours they are kidnapped and taken to India, where an unexpected friendship with the handsome Prince Ajari complicates Erica’s escape — especially when she learns he is Betul’s uncle. As friends attempt a rescue, Erica fights to fulfill her sister’s final request — Betul must not become lost in Sajah Ajari’s Hindu heritage. Can the light of Christ overcome the differences holding Erica and Sajah captive? Breathtakingly paced, Lights of the Veil moves with grand adventure toward the ultimate triumph of God’s truth.” –

My Review:
Patty Metzer has a way of writing that gets you so caught up in the story! The characters in this book are real, and the plot line is well researched. Patty Metzer makes you feel that you are right there in India, seeing the vibrant colors, the adorned temples, and talking with the people. It is a totally different world, one that brings you in and shows you how other people live.

In this powerful story, Erica Tanner gets kidnapped and taken to India, where her parents and her sister and brother-in-law were missionaries. Although her parents died when Erica was young, her sister went back to finish their work in India. Now that her sister and brother-in-law have died at the hands of the Sikh (religious extremists) Erica must care for their son, Betul. When Erica escapes her kidnappers she is desperate to find help, and her nephew Betul again. In looking for help, Erica happens to run to the arms of Sajah Ajari who also happens to be a prince, and Betul’s uncle. Now that she has his help, can she overcome Sikh, the Hindu influences that try to scare her at every turn, and her growing love for Prince Ajari?

A story of love, adventure, and the battle between Christianity and Hinduism, and how God never fails!
