Tiger HillsBook - 2011
Southern India in the late 1800s. As the first girl born to the Nachimada family in over 60 years, Devi is the object of adoration of her entire family. Strong-willed and confident, she befriends the shy Devanna, a young boy whose mother has died. The two quickly become inseparable, until Devi meets Machu the tiger killer, a hunter of great repute. Soon they fall deeply in love, an attraction that drives a wedge between Devi and Devanna. It is this tangled relationship among the three that leads to a devastating tragedy-- an event that forever changes their fates and has unforeseen consequences for generations to come.
