The SITS book club is going great! For our last twitter party, we had a tweet reach of over 160,000 people!!
I am thrilled to announce our next SITS book club pick. It is a book I LOVED so I can’t wait to share it with you.
Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda is a gem of a book. It was in my top ten of 2010 ( here.) In a small Indian village, a woman gives birth to a daughter. Before her husband can kill the daughter as he did to her older sister, the woman, Kavita, takes the baby to an orphanage in Mumbai. She painfully gives up the baby and goes home to her village.
At the same time, a doctor in San Francisco cannot get pregnant. Her husband is Indian and his mother knows of the same orphanage in Mumbai. They adopt that baby.
The book weaves back and forth from San Francisco to India with the stories of both families. Towards the end, their stories intersect.
