Now in paperback, the international bestselling novel critics call ?spellbinding? and ?touching.? Somer?s life is everything she imagined it would be ? starting her career as a physician and newly married in San Francisco -- until she makes the devastating discovery she will never be able to have children. The same year in India, a poor mother makes the heartbreaking choice to save her newborn daughter?s life by giving her away. It is a decision that will haunt Kavita for the rest of her life and cause a ripple effect that travels across the world and back again. Asha, adopted out of a Mumbai orphanage, is the child that binds the destinies of these two women. We follow both families over the next twenty years, invisibly connected until Asha?s journey of self-discovery leads her back to India. Compulsively readable and deeply touching, Secret Daughter is a story of the unforeseen ways in which our choices and families affect our lives, and the indelible power of love in all its many forms. This special edition, which is only available at Target, includes an exclusive letter from the author to the reader.
