A stunning, beautifully written dark drama, with a tragic love story at its heart, by the acclaimed author of How To Be Brave, The Mountain in My Shoe and Maria in the Moon.

Be careful what you wish for... Long ago, Andrew made a childhood wish, and kept it in a silver box. When it finally comes true, he wishes he hadn't... Long ago, Ben made a promise and he had a dream: to travel to Africa to volunteer at a lion reserve. When he finally makes it, it isn't for the reasons he imagined... Ben and Andrew keep meeting in unexpected places, and the intense relationship that develops seems to be guided by fate. Or is it? What if the very thing that draws them together is tainted by past secrets that threaten everything? A dark, consuming drama that shifts from Zimbabwe to England, and then back into the past, The Lion Tamer Who Lost is also a devastatingly beautiful love story, with a tragic heart... `A stirring novel, beautifully written, reminiscent of the early work of Maggie O'Farrell' Irish Times `Fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine will love it' Red `Quirky, darkly comic, heartfelt and original' Sunday Mirror `This achingly sad story has wonderful characters, including the spiky, sweary Catherine' Sunday People `A beautiful and compassionate read' Prima `Fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine will love it' Red
