TAG Book Review: Secret Daughter

Secret Daughter, by Shilpi Somaya Gowda, explores the power and strength of family relationships.

While growing up in San Francisco, Asha learns that she is adopted and this causes her to ponder about her identity.

Throughout her life, she has always wondered what it would be like to find her birth parents. Asha has many questions about her origin and believes that her birth parents hold the key to her answers.

Her relationship with her adoptive parents is distant because she accuses them of failing to accept her for who she is.

One day, Asha is granted a scholarship to study abroad in India, where her birth parents live. She takes this opportunity to pursue her career but she also searches for her birth parents.

Will Asha finally get the answers she seeks? Secret Daughter is an inspiring story which depicts the emotional rollercoaster that comes with being an adoptive child.
