    Well this is a coincidence. Last week one of the members of our walking group (she reads a vast amount of really good fiction) told me how much she loved White Tiger. And now here you are choosing it as a 2021. What surprises me is that it’s been around for many years and didn’t really get a huge amount of attention at the time. Maybe it’s the film version that has given it a new audience.

      My apologies for the late reply Karen, I am having problems with the internet. That is a coincidence. I picked it up on a whim while browsing in the second hand bookshop at Tredegar House and it has sat on my book shelf for quite a while. I picked it at random one day and absolutely loved it. I’m surprised it is not more widely known, because it really is a wonderful read. So glad your walking friend agreed.
