I feel like I was hooked to this book for the first like 50-100 pages as we learn the story of Kavita giving up her daughter to an Indian orphanage so her daughter can live. While on the other side of the world we learn about Somer, a successful doctor who can't have children. Their two worlds collide as Somer and her husband (who is also from India) adopt Asha (Kavita's daughter). The first part of the book was gripping and such a sad reality of what happens in India and to those who can't have kids. However, the book started to drag for me in the middle, but then it picked up when Asha went back to India as a journalist intern and started looking for her birth parents. It didn't end how I expected but I thought it was a good ending. I think I just didn't like that the book covered Asha's childhood up to her 20s. I just couldn't buy into the existing familial relationships since they weren't developed.
This is one book that everyone should re-read every few years.
