Evocative story of love and loss,
This review is from: Tiger Hills (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book immediately grabs your attention with it's descriptions of landscape and people, with prose of such elegant literary quality that enhances the story and makes the book such a pleassure to read. A veritable feast for the senses.
A well-paced plot brings in the well written cast, who gently reveal their characters as the story unfolds. The story explores the rich themes of love and loss. Wonderful evocation of the main family and its relationship with the land, makes this book a delight to read. We learn much of the history and culture without having it thrust upon us.
There is great empathy with the women's roles and the forces that constrain their lives, and the consequences of a strong-willed woman trying to break away from the restraints of her society.
