Another stunning Anglo-Indian love story from the author of The Last Vicereine, Penguin Random House 2017.

October 1985, Ash Misra leaves a blood-stained Delhi for Oxford University. Haunted by a terrible secret, he just wants to forget. Music and fresh violence bring him to fellow student and amateur violinist, Isabella Angus, but duty and the burden of history keep them apart. A quarter of a century later against the background of the global ­financial crisis, Sir Peter Roberts, former Master of Woodstock College, receives a letter from Ash for Isabella. They are no longer young but they had made a tryst with destiny; old terrors and suppressed desires return.

Praise for The Dream That Held us

The Dream That Held US took me on an exquisite exploration if a love that crosses boundaries of time and culture.

Angela Barton, author of Arlette’s Story, Magnolia House and You’ve Got My Number

Deeply imbued with a certain wistfulness and haunting sense of loss brought out by the end of a glorious summer… Rhiannon Jenkins Tsang’s latest novel is a sensitive and skillful exploration of love, longing, and whether life sometimes relents to give us second chances.

Osama Siddique, author of Snuffing Out the Moon

This book carries a universal message about love and finding your way in the world. I loved it.

Angela Barton, author of Arlette’s Story, Magnolia House and You’ve Got My Number
