'Powerful and evocative' Woman & Home
All he needs is to find her. First he must remember who she is.
An injured soldier has lost everything, even his past. His dreams hint at his old life; flashes of a woman. His only wish is to return to her, but will his broken mind let him? And will she still be waiting for him, if it does?
Back at the start of 1914, at a party on the shores of Bombay, Madeline Bright and Luke Devereaux meet. Strangers in a foreign world, in the sweltering heat and colour of colonial India they fall in love. They want to believe nothing can come between them, not even the disapproval of Maddy's mother. But war looms and Luke, like so many, has no choice but to fight.
Maddy's mother urges her to move on. Yet still she clings to the promise Luke left her with: that the two of them 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 and Kate Furnivall.

Ashcroft (Island in the East) spins an irresistible romantic tour de force set in early-20th-century India. Maddy Bright grew up in England but has since joined her parents in India, where she falls hard for dashing British military officer Luke Devereaux. After Luke gives her a Bombay travel guidebook that leads her on adventures, their connection deepens, leading quickly to marriage and pregnancy, then uncertainty when Luke is sent to fight in WWI. All of Ashcroft's characters leap off the page, especially Maddy's best friend and her supportive father, who share Maddy's intense anguish when she receives news from the front that Luke has been seriously injured, and after she doesn't hear from him, she believes he's died. The author employs evocative prose and taut plotting, and the final twist will come as a surprise to those who think they have the story figured out. Ashcroft keeps readers turning the pages.
