When a flock of herons wheeled overhead at the moment of Devi's birth, it seemed that her life would be touched by fate...As a child, Devi befriends a young boy whose mother has died in tragic circumstances. Over the years, Devi and Devanna become inseparable as they go to school together and learn more about the extended family that surrounds them. However things change when Devi meets Muthi, a young man who has killed a tiger and is feted as a hero. Although she is still a child and Muthi is a man, Devi vows that one day she will marry him. It is this love that will gradually drive a wedge between her and her friend Devanna, who has been taken under the wing of a local missionary. For Devi is blind to the fact that Devanna himself has fallen for her. Devanna leaves the village to study medicine, in the hope that when he returns Devi will see his worth and return his love, but then a tragedy changes the fate of all three, with far-reaching consequences for the generations to come.

"Tiger Hills" -

This is one of the best books I have ever read. Totally absorbed into the lives of the characters. Couldn't read this book quickly enough but it would not let me! I felt as though I was walking with them, eating with them, working with them, celebrating with them and crying with them. When finally reaching the end I wanted this story to go on and on. A book not to be missed!
