  • Description
    An astonishing achievement for a 17-year-old, Simar Malhotra writes with earnestness and fluency in a voice both endearing and moving. The novel is a compelling read and its young author can only get better, in what promises to be an extraordinary writing career. - Dr. Shashi Tharoor.

    This is Rheas story

    Young, carefree and happy, her life revolves around her family - her loving parents and her two older brothers: Arjun, the eldest, an idealistic young man who is an active member of the Peoples Party, and Daksh, who is the black sheep of the family.

    Rhea is thrilled by her admission into a summer programme at Yale University. She arrives starry-eyed and is immediately caught up by the excitement of university life in America. She makes new friends and falls in love with the dashing and enigmatic Abhimanyu. But her world is soon shattered by a message from back home. Arjun has been made a scapegoat in a political conspiracy and implicated in a murder charge. She returns to find her father in a coma and her mother distraught. On the brink of giving up hope, who will Rhea summon to her rescue? Will Abhimanyu, who abhors India, help Rhea negotiate this quagmire? How will they unravel the mystery behind Arjun's wrongful murder charge? Will Abhimanyu and Rhea see the tomorrow of their dreams together or walk different paths?

    Find out in There is a Tide, a powerful debut which lays bare political intrigue and its impact on the lives of ordinary citizens.
    • 'Simar, in her first book at seventeen, has gone beyond her years. A simple yet gripping read that reflects how young India is now the changing India. - Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, filmmaker.
    • [There is a Tide] Strikes a chord with the young, aspirational India and submerges the reader in a captivating plot. The climax is as intense as the last over in an India-Pakistan cricket match. A triple century - Virendra Sehwag, cricketer

    Powerful and Passionate Prose

    The book gives a deep insight into the differences between the lifestyle, mannerisms and thought process of an American and Indian student. They beautifully find similarities within their differences and hence emerges a fascinating story of friendship, loyalty and love through troubled times. The writer's feelings and emotions are so real and one can sense the genuineness in her prose. A must read for all.
