Tuesday Afternoon Bookclub: The Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somaya Gowda

In rural India, where only sons matter, a young woman saves her daughter’s life by placing her in an orphanage.  Moving between two worlds and two families, one struggling to survive in the fetid slums of Mumbai, the other grappling to forge a cohesive family despite their diverging cultural identities, this powerful debut novel marks the arrival of a fresh talent.
