Amila, Katharina  Finke - With the Heart of a Tigress


The moving story of a young woman in India

Without suspecting the nightmare in store for her, Amila's parents send her to New Delhi at the age of nine. A mediator is to introduce her to a wealthy man. But fate does not mean well with her: after two years as a slave she is forced to marry a much older man.

Amila is now 24 years old and the mother of five children – hard physical work, sex on command and being beaten are part of her daily routine. But she won't give up …

This is the story of a courageous woman who grows stronger every day and has not lost her hope for a better future.

For readers of I Am Malala, I Am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced and Across Many Mountains.
