'Emotional, evocative and enthralling'
'An epic, bittersweet love story that will draw you in and grip you to the last page'
United by love. Separated by war. Will they find their way back to each other?
It's New Year's Eve, and Madeline Bright, fresh to the exotic opulence of colonial India, is yearning for all she's left behind in England. But then, at the stroke of midnight, Maddy meets Luke Devereaux, and as the year changes so do their lives - forever...
Bold and charismatic, Luke opens her eyes to the wonders of Bombay, while Maddy's beauty and vivacity captures his heart. Only her mother disapproves, preferring the devoted Guy Bowen as a match for her daughter.
But while Maddy and Luke are falling in love, the world is falling apart. War is on the horizon, and soon it's a question of when Luke will be called to fight, not if. They'll be continents apart, separated by danger and devastating loss, but bound by Luke's promise that they will meet again in Bombay...
Meet Me in Bombay is a story of fierce love set against the exotic and colourful world of colonial Bombay and the tragedy of the First World War.
Perfect for fans of Dinah Jefferies, Lucinda Riley, Kate Furnivall and Lucy Foley.
