Burma TIger by novelist Bill Timmons follows Sergeant Major Michael St. John, of Rudyard Kipling's poem "Mandalay," as a series of providential circumstances thrust him from obscurity into the international limelight, as well as winning him the Victoria Cross. But, providence has more than fame and notoriety in store for Sergeant St. John when he falls in love with Supi Yaw, a beautiful, spitfire of a woman who shows the Sergeant Major that love knows no conventions. Along the way, St. John and Supi Yaw find thier love pushing boundaries and social conventions that even they cannont tolerate, and with the aid of unexpected seafaring friends they embark on a life that they would never have expected possible. Written in masterful and lyrical prose, author Timmons has written a landmark work of adventure, romance, and drama. Set in luscious and vivid settings and populated by believable and multi-demensional characters, Burma Tiger is a must read for anyone who loves a great story.
