Review quote

An epic, exotic love story...It is a blockbuster debut from Sarita Mandanna that will be in many beach bags this summer. * SANDWELL CHRONICLE * More than alove story, Tiger Hills explores the hazardous side of passion and the shackling grip of memory once love has been thwarted. * INTERNATIONAL HERALD TRIBUNE / NEW YORK TIMES * Sweet novel about a secret love. * HEAT MAGAZINE * Mandanna fuses history and romance to tell a vivid story, painting pictures that reverberate in the mind. * OXFORD TIMES * An epic love story from start to finish * BIG ISSUE IN THE NORTH * Tragic in parts but ultimately a beautifully written saga, this is the emergence of a major new talent -- Virgina Blackburn * SUNDAY EXPRESS * 'An epic and extraordinary debut from an astonishing talent.' -- Caroline Jowett * DAILY EXPRESS * Lavish...Sarita Mandanna's fusion of history and romance makes for an aromatic blend. -- Boyd Tonkin * INDEPENDENT *
