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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A remarkable story. June 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
So many times we think our lives are hard. Yet we are given so many opportunities in our county. Here is a story of a young women who had every thing going against her, yet she survived a sickly childhood, a civil war, internment camps and finally a new beginning in a country where she could not even speak the language. An awesome story that I highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Read & Re-Read May 28, 2014
I can honestly say it was an amazing story. I enjoyed and will probably read it again and again through the years. I have an affection for true stories and this one was certainly one to tell. The amazing journey that one woman went through and how God was with her through her road of obstacles and uncertainty of life. The only thing I would critque about the style of writing is that there were several times the author repeated herself on details and sometimes I had to look back to see if I missed a page or were reading the same page again because the verbage was exactly the same numerous times. Other than that the story itself has a unique quality to touch any woman no matter what walk of life or nationality or spiritual point they are at in life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Soulof a Tiger by SreyReath/SreyRam Kuy February 23, 2014
Format:Audible Audio Edition
An amazing story about a young woman who survived the horrors of the Khmer Rouge Killing Fields. The novel is easy reading and well written. As a woman , I found Rachana's spirituality, courage and strong conviction to stand by her choices (whether right or wrong) very inspiring and thought-provoking. A must-read for all girls and women of any age and culture. After reading this book, I want the "Soul of a Tiger".

More About the Author

To be blessed with the gift of life is a message that SreyReath Kuy shares in her debut novel. Based on true events, Soul of a Tiger is a daring story of survival and courage amid unspeakable atrocities. SreyReath's journey as a child raised during the reign of terror inflicted upon the citizens of Cambodia in the Killing Fields offers a terrifying account of what took place, while also touching readers' hearts with the many miracles along the way.

The author's strong passion and gift to help people led her to the United States, where she continued her education to become a doctor. She has always strived to make life better for the people she encounters, both through her profession as a podiatrist in Houston and now through her talents as a writer and speaker.

Both in high school and college, SreyReath Kuy went to Mexico as a volunteer. The first time was with her church group to build an orphanage. The second time she went to Mexico was through a scholarship she received as a Global Graduate from Oregon State University. At that time, she stayed in Mexico for six months and offered health education programs to people in rural farming communities.

My book, Soul of a Tiger, is a book that teaches how to find hope when there is no hope. It is a story of a woman that refuses to give up no matter how bleak her circumstances are. It tells of a family that loves each other, and takes care of each other. When you have the love of your family and your faith is deeply rooted the rain and the storms may come, but it does not blow that house down.
