(The first book in the Heart of India series)
A novel by

Two worlds clash as a young English heiress and an orphaned boy, an "untouchable," become inextricably entwined,

Coral Kendall is an heiress to the Kingscote Silk Plantation in northern India in the last decade of the 1700s. Breaching cultural boundaries and shunning the scorn of her wealthy English family, she adopts a young orphaned boy, an "Untouchable" from the bottom of the Hindu class system, and brings him into her home. Despite their contrasting cultures and backgrounds, the bond of love that develops between Coral and Gem is that of a mother and son. But tragedy strikes when the boy is abducted and the body later found in the river.

Was there a reason to believe that Gem did not perish? Was the boy's true identity what she had been led to believe? How could she discover the truth?

One man may hold the key to her son. Can she discover the truth and win the struggle for the seagoing trader's heart?

A fascinating new historical series from the time of William Carey.
