TIGER WITH A HUMAN SOUL
Tiger with a Human Soul is a story of relationships intertwined through the ages.
Like her two previous books, A Taste for Green Tangerines and Night of the Water Spirits, Tiger with a Human Soul is set in Asia. This time focusing on Indonesia where Barbara has spent much of her life, the book will appeal to travellers with an interest in Java and Bali.
From a prologue in ancient Mataram times through an epilogue set in Central Java in the future, Tiger with a Human Soul spans a thousand years and gently flirts with the idea of reincarnation although Barbara’s lightness of touch when it comes to the spiritual side makes this a book with mass appeal.

"BISCO'S SECOND BOOK IS A GENTLY FLOWING READ WHICH REFLECTS THE TRUE NATURE OF CLOSE RELATIONSHIPS AND THE HUMAN NECESSITY TO DRAW BACK TO A SOUL MATE EVEN WHEN IT IS NOT THE BEST COURSE OF ACTION TO FOLLOW. THE BOOK KEPT ME TURNING PAGES RIGHT TO THE VERY END. I READ IT IN 24 HOURS, IT WAS THAT ABSORBING. A HIGHLY RECOMMENDED READ"
