Reviews

"Gowda has masterfully portrayed two families... linked by a powerful, painful tie that complicates their lives... A thought-provoking examination of the challenges of being a woman in America and in India -- and in the psychological spaces in between."--Chitra Divakaruni, author of The Palace of Illusions
"Set in California and the teeming city of Mumbai, SECRET DAUGHTER is a beautifully composed compelling story of love, loss, discovery and the true meaning of family."--Anjali Banerjee, author of Imaginary Men
It's moving and thought-provoking and informative and imaginative and beautifully executed. What a wonderful story!--Mary Jane Clark, author of Dying for Mercy
This wise debut moves deftly between the child's two mothers and cultures.--Good Housekeeping
A No. 1 bestseller in Canada, "Secret Daughter" tells a nuanced coming-of-age story that is faithful to the economic and emotional realities of two very different cultures.--Washington Post
First novelist Gowda offers especially vivid descriptions of the contrasts and contradictions of modern India... Rife with themes that lend themselves to discussion, such as cultural identity, adoption, and women's roles, this will appeal to the book club crowd.--Library Journal
The Secret Daughter is a deeply moving and timeless story of an adopted daughter's long distance search for cultural identity and acceptance; first with the mother who raised her, and ultimately with the mother who gave her up.--Kathleen Kent, author of The Heretic's Daughter
In her engaging debut, Gowda weaves together two compelling stories... Gowda writes with compassion and uncanny perception from the points of view of Kavita, Somer, and Asha, while portraying the vibrant traditions, sights, and sounds of modern India.--Booklist
Fiction with a conscience, as two couples worlds apart are linked by an adopted child....A lightweight fable of family division and reconciliation, gaining intensity and depth from the author's sharp social observations--Kirkus Reviews
