Great novel re: infertility and adoption

Postby waitingtobemommy » Fri Jun 10, 2011 8:22 pm

I just started reading this great novel regarding one woman's journey down infertility and another woman's heartbreak over giving up her baby girl for adoption in India. I'm only about 1/3 through the book, but can't put it down, so I figured it would be a good one to recommend. Some of the early parts of the book, where the American woman was dealing with infertility, really hit home.

You should all read it!
PS: And I'll let you know if it's worth it when I reach the end! :)

Oh yeah, I guess the name of the book would be helpful...duh! :)

It's called "Secret Daughter" and it's written by Shilpi Somaya Gowda

Sorry about that :)
