Chapter One...

"When I was eight, I walked out of Burma..."

So begins the true story of Mary Rayner's childhood, a beautifully written and deeply moving account of a family who for several generations lived in colonial Burma, and of what happened to Mary and her siblings when World War 2 shattered their lives.

Featuring dozens of original photographs that capture the people and places that were once part of the British Empire, plus the heartbreaking love letters from a her father and mother who were torn apart by war, No More Tigers is a tale of resilience and survival which readers of all ages can enjoy. It is a quest for understanding, for home, for answers. Packed so full of detail it carries you away to a different time and place, it's laugh-aloud funny, yet isn't afraid to ask uncomfortable questions about how we used to live.
