I’m driving myself mad trying to remember a book, and would love some help.

I thought it was called The tiger hunter or The hunter’s wife, but clearly isn’t!

From what I can remember, it was set in India, spanning decades, there is a daughter of some sort of royalty, she is betrothed to one man, but then the tiger hunter arrives and she falls in love with him.

I think she might’ve got pregnant, and then her reputation is ruined.

I feel like the book is then her betrothed trying to find the tiger hunter for revenge.

I did think it was from a Richard and Judy book club list, but I’ve checked those and it’s not on there, also searched my amazon history - I’m beginning to think I imagined it!

Does anyone recognise this book?

Thank you in advance flowers

It sounds a bit like The Tiger's Wife by Téa Obreht, though not all of your memories fit!

That’s not it unfortunately ada, but that sounds brilliant, I’ve added it to my list to read smile

Your plot sounded so familiar to me Myfanwy I'm sure I've read it! I'm racking my brains now!

Sorry! Hope it doesn’t drive you as mad as it is me! I can remember it so vividly, hopefully I’ll remember the correct title soon.

I found it! Tiger Hills by Sarita Mandanna - very tempted to buy it and read it again, to see if it’s as good as I remembered.
