An epic Romeo and Juliet for the 21st century In a bustling London cafe, 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?

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A rich saga of tangled relationships and strained loyalties... subtly played out; passionate and intelligent in scope" * Financial Times *
"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 *
"A searing love story... burns and scorches with wry conviction about young love that refuses to say die" * India Today *
"A brilliant second book and one that makes a stand to address the complex battle and struggle for identity and independence faced by the modern Asian woman" * TheAsianWriter.com *
"Montagues and Capulets are redrawn for the 21st century, and it's this utterly convincing conflict of family values that makes for such a compelling narrative" * LitLove.wordpress.com *
