Summary of Tiger Hills Summary of Tiger Hills Reviews for Tiger Hills An Excerpt from Tiger Hills
The year is 1878, the year a beautiful baby girl, Devi, is born. Her fate is intertwined with Devanna, a gifted young boy whose mother has died in tragic circumstances. The two quickly become inseparable, until Devi meets Machu the tiger killer, a hunter of great repute. It is the tangled relationship between the three that leads to a devastating tragedy—an event with unforeseen and far-reaching consequences for generations to come.

“More than a love story, Tiger Hills explores the hazardous side of passion and the shackling grip of memory once love has been thwarted…. An illuminating portrait of place through six decades of social change.”
—The New York Times, Editor’s Choice

“[A] magnificent debut…. It is impossible to stop reading Mandanna’s spellbinding epic.”
—Booklist, Starred Review

“Beautiful prose and delicate handling.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“An extraordinarily imaginative novel with prose that catches in the heart like poetry.”
—Leila Meacham, New York Times bestselling author of Roses

“Mandanna’s sweeping saga is ambitious (and) engaging.”
—Publishers Weekly

“With great skill, Sarita Mandanna inserts the reader into Southern India in the late 1800s and captivates us with her saga of a strong-willed girl making difficult choices that will change her life. From the lushness of mountain, jungle, and coffee plantation landscapes, to the multiple threads of unfulfilled love, I was hooked to the very last page, and was reluctant to have to leave this fascinating world."
—Lalita Tademy, author of Cane River and Red River

“A great read that will have many points of discussion for any book group; highly recommended.”
—Library Journal
