About this event

We're very excited to invite you to the launch of my new novel, THE DREAM THAT HELD US.  

“Another stunning ‘Anglo-Indian’ love story from the author of The Last Vicereine, Penguin Random House.” 

“Deeply imbued with a certain wistfulness and haunting sense of loss brought about by the end of a glorious summer…Rhiannon Jenkins Tsang’s latest novel is a sensitive and skilful exploration of love, long and whether life sometimes relents and gives us second chances.” Osama Siddique-author of Snuffing Out the Moon. 

October 1985, Ash Misra leaves a bloody 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, picks up a letter from Ash to Isabella.  They were no longer young but they had made a tryst with destiny; old terrors and suppressed desires return.   “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.
