Another win from Goodreads! First, i would like to say that Tea is in her mid-twenties and already writes like she has seen it all! She is a great storyteller and can really invite and pull in the reader. I just love how she have real identities to the people in the story. Of course my favorite story were of the Deathless Man.

The Tiger's Wife is about a young girl named Natalia who is a doctor and she is in a Balkan country. She was very close with her grandfather and he passes away and she just goes back and forth from past to present and remembers him and the great and beautiful stories he has told her. I love Natalia and her grandfather's closeness. It is tender and real. The whole book reads like poetry and Tea really has a way with words.
