The Year of the Tiger



The Year of the Tiger

The story begins in 1497, with the marriage and death on the same day of Jeffrey Thurston; dead by the hand of his wife. Following that, the tale moves on almost 450 years, briefly to China and then to a girls’ boarding school in northern England just after the Second World War. Revolving around a blind male teacher and one of the younger teachers in the boarding school, the story reveals surprising and capricious twists and turns that require both characters to work hand in hand to fulfill an emotionally challenging task of breaking a long-plaguing curse. A curse that has been going on for more than four hundred years finally meets its match as a friendly but desperate entity leads the two to a riveting adventure of a lifetime.
