Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda

"Secret Daughter," was a FANTASTIC read as many of you suggested. A book by www.shilpigowda.com will be adapted by Canadian filmmaker Deepa Mehta soon.

I finally got around to reading it and could not put it down. I was captivated with Kavita's story line, felt like I was in India experiencing the sights, sounds and smells. The author was inspired to write this book after a visit to an orphanage in India. The stories of motherhood are engaging, families are all created differently. The family you create is more important than the one you're born into. It focuses on infanticide, abandonment and how differently people value a girl.

Enjoyed it very much! smiley
