Welcome to the Blog Tour for A Tapestry of Light by Kimberly Duffy, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
About the Book:
Ottilie Russell is adrift between two cultures, British and Indian, belonging to both and neither. In order to support her little brother, Thaddeus, and her grandmother, she relies upon her skills in beetle-wing embroidery that have been passed down to her through generations of Indian women.
When a stranger appears with the news that Thaddeus is now Baron Sunderson and must travel to England to take his place as a nobleman, Ottilie is shattered by the secrets that come to light. Despite her growing friendship with Everett Scott, friend to Ottilie’s English grandmother and aunt, she refuses to give up her brother. Then tragedy strikes, and she is forced to make a decision that will take Thaddeus far from death and herself far from home.
But betrayal and loss lurk in England, too, and soon Ottilie must fight to ensure Thaddeus doesn’t forget who he is, as well as find a way to stitch a place for herself in this foreign land.

I enjoyed this book. It was interesting to learn about how people from India were treated by the English, especially those who had mixed blood. I thought it was interesting to see Ottilie struggle with her faith throughout the book and how she struggled feeling like she fit in anywhere. I liked how once she realized that the only person’s whose opinion matter was God’s, she was able to grow and help others to grow and learn to accept her. I also loved learning about the culture in India especially about the Beetle Wing embroidery. I thought this was a good book that helped me to learn and grow along with the characters.
I received a complimentary book from publishers, publicists, and or authors. A review was not required and all opinions and ideas expressed are my own.
