5.0 out of 5 stars Veiled hearts, 16 April 2003
This review is from: Veils of Silk (Mass Market Paperback)
A man with the soul burnt out by captivity, torments, his own dishonour, and a woman who, haunted by her dark memories, afraid of life.
"Veils of Silk" are the third part of the Silk Trilogy, telling a story of Ian Cameron whose miraculous salvation from the imprisonment in Bokhara is described in "Silk and Secrets". The majority of the story takes place in India, where Ian returns to settle some matters, after his rescue from Amir Nasrullah's fiendish hands. And in the darkest hours of his life he meets Laura Stephenson (formerly Larissa Aleksandrovna Karelian), who seems to be capable of bringing his soul back from the very abyss of grief and despair, and make him laugh again.
There is a great wisdom in a maxim "that love could heal", and once more it comes true. However, the circumstances and murky past of Ian and Laura do not make it easy.
Frankly saying, Mary Jo Putney is my favourite romance writer, and "Veils of Silk" are one of her best book, but which of them isn't really good?
I have started reading it and was immediately caught by the story as by a powerful vortex. That is a kind of book which you read like in fever, with trembling hands and impatient gaze, which catches all your attention and does not allow to be put aside, until you have read the last word.
Ms Putney always tells a story with a great power of imagination. She creates real, colourful and living world, and her characters are complex and convincing. Moreover, the historical and cultural details are described with accuracy, and the portrait of early nineteenth century India reminds M. M. Kaye's The Far Pavilions.
"Veils of Silk" tell the truth about human souls, hearts and the nature of love. It is not a mere love story of a capricious, stubborn heiress and a handsome, arrogant, but charming, of course, duke. It is a moving story about loneliness, despair, and the power of love, all hidden behind many delicate veils of fear and shame.
I recommend this book to all romance readers. It is a very beautiful one and you wouldn't regret the time spent on reading it.

I received the book in good order and especially as it was during the immediate aftermath of Sandy. I haven't started this series yet but look forward to doing so very soon.
