|Shadowed in Silk Book Cover|
She decided to help out with youth at her local church and eventually met David, a young man assigned to be the Student Pastor. Naturally they were thrown together quite a bit, but time passed and on the anniversary of her child's first birthday she could barely hold her emotions in check. This young man saw her distress and handed her a card with comforting words from the Bible.
Christine says she was trying to envision her child in a high chair playing with a piece of birthday cake, but she couldn't even imagine what she looked like now. And she also wondered did the parents ever think of her. But being closed adoption in those days, it was impossible to meet with them. But the Lord impressed on her heart that He knew her pain. Several months later David asked her to marry him. With pounding heart she told him she had something to say first, and if, after hearing it he still wanted to, he could propose again.
The Lord blessed them with three children of their own, yet David encouraged her to keep loving and searching for her birth daughter. And when Sarah turned twenty they were reunited. And guess who is on the cover of Christine's debut book? Isn't the dear Lord amazing?
This Canadian author's fascination with the British Raj was seeded from stories of her ancestors who served in the British Cavalry in India. SHADOWED in SILK - released as an eBook May 1, with printed version Sept 1. A must read!
