Set against the exotic backdrop of India, this absorbing novel effortlessly weaves together the life stories of three fascinating women. Mourning the recent loss of her Anglo-Indian father and suddenly aware of her own mortality, Claire, a 30-something documentary filmmaker, travels from Canada to India to meet her last remaining relative, an elderly cousin named Charlotte. As Claire rummages through Charlotte’s keepsakes, she discovers the untold story of her own grandmother, Alice Maud Spencer, the wife of Gandhi’s jailer in the waning days of the Raj. As she digs deeper into the mystery of her grandmother’s life and death, Claire experiences visitations from a mysterious female tiger who gives her clues to Alice’s story — and to Claire’s own life. A layered, sensual, and deeply satisfying novel, Tiger Dreams reflects the complex nature of history and of India itself, combining a sweeping story and intriguing characters with the writer’s poetic sensibility and love of place.
