Tiger

Polly Clark
Authors:
Polly Clark

The Amur tiger is legendary for its superb memory and unforgiving nature. If you try to kill one and fail, or kill one of its family, the tiger will not rest until it has found you and killed you in return. There are stories among local people of years passing between offence and revenge, but revenge is always had.Tiger is a bewitching novel that brings together three humans and a tiger in the wilds of Siberia. There, the Udeghe people believe that to see a tiger - the god of the forest - is unlucky. Edit, the daughter of a Shaman, knows this. But in the harsh, freezing winter, she will risk everything to save her daughter. And the tiger's cub will be captured.Frieda, a zookeeper in England, attempts to escape her past by taking on the dangerous role of the cub's protector. As their bond deepens, she comes to fight for its release, and travels to Siberia. There, she - and Edit's daughter - will find out if a tiger can forgive.Weaving together the myths of the Amur region endangered by Russia and China, the bonds of mothers and daughters, and, most breathtakingly, the story of the tiger itself, Polly Clark's second novel drops you deep into a spellbinding world of beauty, brutality and wonder.
