Color of Love by Anita Stansfield


The British aristocracy is an inflexible judge. And for Amala, a lovely young Indian woman, that judgment is most keenly felt. Raised from a child by the wealthy Hepworth family following the murder of her parents, Amala grew up alongside the Hepworth’s own daughter, Katarina, and was loved as both sister and daughter. The family is part of the charmed circle of the upper class, but Amala’s place in society is tenuous. As an Indian woman, her life is marked by a sense of otherness and voices of prejudice. So when she embarks upon a sweet acquaintance with Henry Breckenridge, a white Englishman, Amala is both elated and terrified. She knows first-hand the opposition that an interracial couple would face, and courtship with Henry could destroy his standing in society.

Determined to spare the reputations of both Henry and her sister Katarina, Amala flees England with the hope that an extended trip will allow her time to heal her broken heart. But she never imagined the repercussions of that decision, and the heartbreak awaiting her. For when she returns to England, she finds those she holds dear facing unparalleled devastation. And now it is her love that holds the key to healing a broken family . . .

In Tiffany’s opinion:

I enjoyed reading this book; particularly that it was historical romance.  The characters were enthralling and there were some twists in the plot that I didn’t expect! The prejudice that occurred in the upper class societies was written vividly in this book and came to life as I read. It was sad to read the experiences Amala and Kat had as young children that ultimately affected them as young adults. I was intrigued by Amala’s character that she was trying to make the right choices despite what her heart wanted.  I also appreciated the romance, as well as the family relationships.  This story was a good reminder to look beyond prejudices that might be relevant in our society and to have an open heart to life’s experiences.  I’ve read several of Anita Stansfield’s books and they never disappoint! “Color of Love” was captivating and well written!
