Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda #throwbackthursday
I’m linking up today with Davida @ The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog for #throwbackthursday.
This year as part of Blog Audit Challenge 2020 I’m going back to update older review posts. On Thursdays, I’ll be re-sharing a few of these great reads, and today I’m sharing my review of Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda, a story of loving sacrifice.

What would you do to ensure that your newborn daughter has the right to live?
Secret Daughter is a compelling story of adoption from three perspectives: Kavita, the mother who gives up her newborn daughter to an orphanage in Mumbai in hopes of saving her daughter’s life; Somer, a heartbroken, newly married physician in San Francisco who, upon hearing the news she cannot have children, decides to adopt; and Asha, Somer’s adopted daughter from Mumbai, India.
QOTD: Have you read Secret Daughter or is it on your TBR?
