Publisher Description

As the first girl to be born into the Nachimanda family in over thirty-five years, the beautiful Devi is the object of adoration of her entire family. Spirited and strong-willed, she befriends the shy Devanna, a young boy whose mother has died in tragic circumstances. Together they grow up amidst the luscious jungles, rolling hills, and coffee plantations of Coorg in Southern India; cocooned by an extended family whose roots to this beautiful land can be traced for centuries. Their futures seem inevitably linked, but everything changes when, one night, they attend a "tiger wedding." It is there that Devi gets her first glimpse of Machu, the celebrated tiger killer and a hunter of great repute. Although she is still a child and Machu is a man, Devi vows to marry him one day. It is this love that will gradually drive a wedge between Devi and Devanna, sowing the seed of a devastating tragedy that will change the fate of all three --- an event that has unforeseen and far-reaching consequences for generations to come.

Told in rich, lyrical prose and set against the background of a changing society, Tiger Hills is a sweeping saga about one woman's determination to live life on her own terms --- and a riveting novel about the choices we make in the name of family, nation, and love.

Pulkit Desai ,

A masterpiece

Sarita implores you to fly with her and experience the majestic wet beauty of Coorg and spend a lifetime alongside it's deeply rooted people and their vicissitudes. What a writer, her prose flows like poetry, and not a single sentence that doesn't fill you with wonder. She has made a lifelong fan out of me!

Excellent!

A fascinating tale woven by eloquent prose that left me asking for more. An interesting peek into a small relatively unknown community/region from India and overall a book that was hard to put down. I can't wait to read the next book from the author!
