The novel shifts between two compelling story lines, one taking place in India and one in America.
My copy of Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda was received for review from TLC Book Tours and the Publisher. I have read a lot of great things about this book, and your enthusiastic review makes me want to go out and read this one now! This sounds like such an amazing book and if it is going to make your top reads then I definitely want to read it.
A coworker recommended this book to me and she forewarned me that it would most definitely spark a few emotions in me, mainly grief, and would undoubtedly help a few tears fall down my cheeks.
The tale of this book in it’s simplest form describes the life of two mother’s on opposite sides of the world, intricately entwined without being aware, due to the life force that binds them – their mutual daughter.
Halfway around the globe, Somer, an American doctor, decides to adopt a child after making the wrenching discovery that she will never have one of her own.
Interweaving the stories of Kavita, Somer, and the child that binds both of their destinies, Secret Daughter poignantly explores the emotional terrain of motherhood, loss, identity, and love, as witnessed through the lives of two families – one Indian, one American – and the child that indelibly connects them.

I always believed that this novel would be a powerful and poignant read, and your words have confirmed that, so I am surely going to get my hands on it! But in a culture that favors sons, the only way for Kavita to save her newborn daughter's life is to give her away. This lack of literature in my life was in large part to a five-day whirlwind adventure to Vegas and needless to say, Sin City doesn’t provide a lot of room or time for reading, despite all the lights.


Let that be my warning to you, as a fellow reader, that this novel is not one for public transit on your morning commutes. Kavita, a mother in India who is forced to give away her daughter due to the inability to raise her in her current circumstances is the first mother we’re introduced to.
But in a culture that favors sons, the only way for Kavita to save her newborn daughter’s life is to give her away.
When she and her husband, Krishnan, see a photo of the baby with the golden-flecked eyes from a Mumbai orphanage, they are overwhelmed with emotion.

Since returning home to Vancouver I thankfully fell back into my regular rhythm and quickly picked up where I originally left off in my reading of Canadian author Shilpi Somaya Gowda’s inspirational and emotionally charged novel, Secret Daughter.
It’s best left for your reading prior to falling asleep at night, or wrapped in a blanket by yourself on a Sunday afternoon. The daughter given up for adoption and in turn, the girl in the middle is Asha, who is adopted at the young age of one, by the second mother in the story, Somer, in the United States.
Somer knows life will change with the adoption but is convinced that they love they already feel will overcome all obstacles. His wife had left Pine Ward, Pennsylvania, almost eight years ago and he hadn't seen her since.


When she and her husband, Krishnan, see a photo of the baby with the gold-flecked eyes from a Mumbai orphanage, they are overwhelmed with emotion. With that said, I fully recommend that everyone reading these words pick up this book and tackle it at soon as you possibly can. That’s literally all I can say before I start spewing forth several key heart-wrenching points in the story! LoyaltyMartha begins making preparations to return to America with Phyllis, her father and new husband on the Titanic but the burden of deception eclipses Phyllis's hope for a new future. Somer knows life will change with the adoption but is convinced that the love they already feel will overcome all obstacles.Interweaving the stories of Kavita, Somer, and the child that binds both of their destinies, Secret Daughter poignantly explores the emotional terrain of motherhood, loss, identity, and love, as witnessed through the lives of two families—one Indian, one American—and the child that indelibly connects them.
This story with the various characters and their different struggles sounds captivating and so readable.Thank you for your great review.
Of all the people on his twelve-step list, people he needed to make amends with, he'd contacted everyone but her. But though her looks had been what caught his attention, it was her personality that had hooked his heart.
But more than that, apologizing, admitting his faults, was part of his twelve-step program.When the elevator pinged, he caught her arm to prevent her from turning. Because she didn't want him to know his child?Fury rose, hot and eager for release, but thank God his common sense had not deserted him.
If he drank around their little girl, or drove drunk with her in the car, he could kill her.
