Book Description

Throughout Asia, the tiger has long been a metaphorical creature of magnificent power, magic, tenacious will and independence. Born in the Year of the Tiger, Rachana’s undeniable symbolic life or death experiences prove that faith, belief, and the will to survive can prevail above all odds.

In what was one of the most appalling mass murders known to mankind, the Khmer Rouge inflicted evil upon the first class citizens of Cambodia from 1975-1979. Throughout the next gruesome four years of the Killing Fields, and even prior during the Cambodian Civil War, nearly a quarter of the entire country’s population was lost from starvation, torture, insurmountable tragedy, disease, and blatant atrocities. Families were broken and the entire landscape of the country was destroyed.

Inspired by a true story, one young woman defies all odds in this profound journey of love, anger, bravery, forgiveness and survival. Along with her beloved mother and two young daughters, Rachana experiences both the best and worst of mankind. Through insurmountable adversities, this tearfully authentic and courageous story will take you on a compelling pursuit of freedom, surprising sacrifices and life or death decisions to be made along the way.

I just finished reading Soul of a Tiger, a story based on a real woman's struggle to survive and free her family from the horrors of the Cambodian war. BRAVO!!! This is great story-telling that inspires, entertains, and educates readers. I'm ashamed to admit that the war in Cambodia, which took place during a large portion of my life, was a terrifying piece of history I knew NOTHING about. Genocide, slavery, poverty to the extreme... thanks to Rachana, the heroine of this book, I have become more enlightened and determined to learn more. Her faith in God, which was rewarded many times over, gives me encouragement to pursue my own goals. This book delivers, clearly illustrating that miracles do continue to happen through faith, determination, and hard work.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Journey of Hope April 14, 2014
After seeing the "Onion Fields" years ago, I never again wanted to experience the angst and pain of reading such a journey. However, Soul of a Tiger, caught my eye and I picked it up. By the time I put it down, I had finished it. I was exhausted and emotionally drained.

The authors capture a human spirit few possess. This is "Rachana's Journey" and the power of faith, love, family and perseverance. Soul is an appropriate term. This book is soul wrenching.

I can't wait to read it again, to see it as a movie and to 'never forget' how cruel people can be to one another and how the power of faith can always triumph over such horrors. This is a story of survival, of human people who never gave up their faith and will to live and to prosper. It is a very easy read, not sad, but uplifting and very enjoyable.

Don't miss reading this book.

Soul of a Tiger is a truly inspiring story of tragedy, hope, and perseverance. I've only heard stories of the atrocities of the Cambodian genocide and the recounting of this story made everything seem so vivid and real. You couldn't help but feel for everyone in the story and in some ways relate to them, without minimizing the struggles that were faced throughout the story.

A truly wonderful read for anyone looking to understand just how tragic things were in this long forgotten country to Western Civilization. And through it all, it still manages to be a vibrant and beautiful country filled with love, hope, and compassion.

A Highly recommended read!

4.0 out of 5 stars ...a remarkable tale! May 31, 2014
By Bevan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As someone who has lived and worked (as a volunteer) in Cambodia several times, I personally know people who went through the harrowing experience of the lunatic Pol Pot era and have nothing but unbridled admiration for them all.
This tale was only slightly marred by the lengthy introduction which read more like a fluffy television soap opera and I was skipping paragraphs and then chapters until about 52% into the book when the Khmer Rouge era began - then I was moved and totally riveted to every word; until it again tapered off at the end.
To be picky - there were occasional strange choices of adjectives to describe some situations which were out of keeping with the overall tone of the tale. And: it also became slightly evangelical at time - but understandably?
STILL - it is a truly remarkable tale of fortitude by an extraordinary woman which still has me stifling back tears as I type this.....

5.0 out of 5 stars A Memorable and Well-Written Story May 12, 2014
This book has a storyline that grabs you from the very beginning. At first I felt sorry for the man in the hospital, but after reading it for some time I realized that he was not even the main character and so I felt that it was a clever way to introduce the main characters, Cha-Cha and her mother, Thida. I really felt touched by their journey and felt like as I was reading this, I grew to know them through the great adjectives and well-written dialogue. Not only do you see who they are, but you can almost imagine what they look like and how their personalities might be in real life. I know this book is about a real story that happened, so I was so impressed by the women’s remarkable survival, especially when they went to the refugee camp. I will read it again as time permits, it is one of those books that you can read a second time and pick up new qualities that you missed the first time.
