Debut novelist Shilpi Somaya Gowda pens this compelling tale about two families, worlds apart, linked by one Indian child. After giving birth to a girl for a second time, impoverished Kavita must give her up to an orphanage. The baby, named Asha, is adopted by an American doctor and raised in California. But once grown, Asha decides to return to India.

“Gowda writes with compassion and uncanny perception…while portraying the vibrant traditions, sights, and sounds of modern India.” —Booklist
