Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“An extraordinarily imaginative novel with prose that catches in the heart like poetry.” Leila Meacham, New York Times bestselling author of Roses
“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 up to the very last page, and reluctant to have to leave this fascinating world.” Lalita Tademy, New York Times bestselling author of Cane River and Red River
“Time and again, Mandanna steers her novel in surprising directions. More than a love story, Tiger Hills explores the hazardous side of passion and the shackling grip of memory once love has been thwarted.” New York Times Book Review
“A staggering achievement, especially as it’s a first novel…Sarita is a major new talent.” Daily Express (London)
“Sumptuously lyrical prose unfurls this utterly engrossing epic tale that’ll seduce you from page one and hold you in its arms, breathless until the last word.” Easy Living (UK)
“Mandanna’s sweeping saga is ambitious, engaging, and relentlessly tragic.” Publishers Weekly
“A great read…Highly recommended.” Library Journal
“Magnificent…Once the story gets going, it is impossible to stop reading Mandanna’s spellbinding epic.” Booklist (starred review)
“Beautiful prose.” Kirkus Reviews
“In her debut novel, Sarita Mandanna creates a whole new world that is carefully and exquisitely crafted. Enter it and prepare to be entranced.” David Davidar, bestselling author
“Set in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Mandanna’s Tiger Hills is lush with descriptions of Coorg in India. It’s a novel that is sprawling, epic in scope, and exquisitely crafted in details. An absorbing, thoroughly engaging read.” Indu Sundaresan, author of The Twentieth Wife
