Product Description

Review

"A searing love story ... burns and scorches with wry conviction about young love that refuses to say die" (India Today)

"Priya has done a wonderful job of characterisation. Her description of the turmoil faced by people in love makes the book an interesting and satisfying read" (New Woman)

"What really sets this book apart from others is the beautiful prose used by the author. The descriptions that she uses are breathtaking and you really feel as though you are there with the characters, seeing everything that they are able to see... the ending was so powerful that it will remain with you long after you have finished." (Chrissie'sCorner.co.uk)

From the Publisher

Big-canvas, provocative new novel from the Commonwealth and Dylan Thomas prize longlisted young author of Ishq and Mushq

From the Back Cover

An epic Romeo and Juliet for the 21st century

In a bustling London café, Anil, now a famous architect, sits waiting for Lina. It is years since he last laid eyes on her, the love of his life.

Lina is running for the train - punctuality has never been her strength. After all this time she cannot be late to meet Anil.

Together, they think back to tragedies both personal and political, betrayals large and small. A past played out across three continents that house their rival worlds: Sikh and Muslim, wealthy and modest, liberal and orthodox, corrupt and moral....

Lina has one more revelation that must be shared with Anil. Might it unite them once and for all, or has it come too late?
