Summary
“Moving and thought-provoking and informative and imaginative and beautifully executed. What a wonderful story!” —Mary Jane Clark “This book is a must for anyone touched by adoption, or India, or the delicate dynamic between adolescent girls and their mothers.” —Sujata Massey, author of Shimura Trouble Secret Daughter, a first novel by Shilpi Somaya Gowda, explores powerfully and poignantly the emotional terrain of motherhood, loss, identity, and love through the experiences of two families—one Indian, one American—and the child that binds them together. A masterful work set partially in the Mumbai slums so vividly portrayed in the hit film Slumdog Millionaire, Secret Daughter recalls the acclaimed novels of Kim Edwards and Thrity Umrigar, yet sparkles with the freshness of a truly exciting new literary voice
