9780956027627: Tiger with a Human Soul

When archaeologist Tess Dickenson arrives in Java she is determined to find the lost capital of the ancient Kingdom of Mataram and to bring its treasures to light. Yet as she pursues her search, she is confronted by a seemingly impossible memory of running through rice fields with a dark eyed boy and by an overpowering fear of the still active volcano, Mt Merapi, visible from the terrace of her house. At the same time, she is torn between intense feelings for two very different men, Philip Dunhill, the local head of the office financing her project and Barry Gellert, the irrepressible anthropologist who rides into her life on a red motorcycle. From a prologue in ancient Mataram times through an epilogue set in Central Java in the future, this is a story of relationships intertwined through the ages.
