you don’t have to stop reading the books from an earlier session. Lynette sent along this recommendation from an author from India
I wanted to share a book on India that I have been reading. I’m about 80 % done and it really is a wonderful story. It talks a lot about family values, culture., etc.
The Golden Son Shilpi Somaya Gowda. I look forward to seeing more from this author.
The New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author of Secret Daughter returns with an unforgettable story of love, honor, tradition, and identity.
The first of his family to go to college, Anil Patel, the golden son, leaves his tiny Indian village to begin a medical residency at one of the best hospitals in America. When his father dies, Anil becomes the head of the Patel household and inherits the mantle of arbiter for all of the village’s disputes. But he is uncertain that he has the wisdom and courage required to take on the role.
Back home in India, Anil’s childhood friend, Leena, struggles to adapt to her demanding new husband. Arranged by her parents, the marriage shatters Leena’s romantic hopes, and forces her to make choices that will hold drastic repercussions for her family.
Tender and bittersweet, The Golden Son illuminates the decisions we must make to find our true selves.
