💛 Years ago I discovered a love for Indian women writers. I recently was given the opportunity to go to India and I can't wait. It's not until November so I thought I would find some new books and reread my oldies. .
💛 I took this photo in honour of International Women's Day.
.
💛 I welcome suggestions for more Indian authors. (I have already read Rohinton Mistry)

I purchased this book to read with Diverse Book Club (@diversebookclub) on Goodreads. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Secret Daughter by Shilipi Somaya Gowda. From a struggling couple in their residency right out of med school Somer and Kris struggle to become a family. After several attempts they choose to adopt. A child from Kris' home country of India. A child of their own. For twenty years they are able to put arguments and questions to a minimal but as Asha grows into a woman she yearns to know more. Accepting a fellowship for journalism Asha is going to India for a year for research. Somer becomes angry and Asha becomes angry. Both rebelling against the other and leaving the family they worked so hard to create in shambles. Both women have to find the answers they need in order for the family to survive the crisis. Love, loss, birth and death are embedded in this story to pull so many emotions through you at once. As the book changes from Asha's birth mother, Kavita to her adopted family you get to see both sides of emotion and how both women must be stronger for the love of their family. It also reflects how giving up a child because of some else's choice is hard for everyone even years after. It also explains just how favored a male child is in India vs. a female child and why Kavita struggles with her choice.

The one issue I have is Asha's search for her birth parents. I felt the process in this book seemed to cut and dry. It is just not that simple everytime. Review also posted on Instagram @jasonnstacie, Library Thing, Go Read, Goodreads/StacieBoren, Amazon, and my blog at readsbystacie.com

Kavita, eine sehr arme Frau in Indien, gibt ihr neugeborenes Mädchen schweren Herzens in ein Waisenhaus, damit es überleben kann.
Somer und Kris, ein kalifornisches Ärzteehepaar, adoptieren dieses Mädchen knapp ein Jahr später.
Irgendwann stellt Asha (das Mädchen) Fragen nach ihrer Herkunft und will ihre Eltern in Indien kennenlernen.
Das Buch hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Der Schreibstil ist flüssig und bildhaft und der Inhalt sehr emotional.
Zum einen wird weiterhin Kavitas Geschichte in Indien erzählt, zum anderen Ashas Kindheit in Amerika, bis schließlich beide Handlungen verbunden werden.
Sehr interessant finde ich auch die Einblicke in die indische Kultur, deren Traditionen, Gebräuche und Probleme.
Manchmal hat mich das Verhalten von Ashas Adoptivmutter verwundert oder gestört, aber alles in allem ein gutes Buch.
