Publisher's Summary

"You were adopted." These three simple words, in a letter accompanying her parents' will, tear Nisha's carefully ordered world apart. Raised in England by her caring but emotionally reserved parents, Nisha has never been one to take risks. Now, with the scrawled address of an Indian convent, she begins a search for the mother and family she never knew and the awakening of long forgotten childhood memories. The secrets, culture, and people that Nisha discover will change her life forever. And, as her eyes are opened to a side of herself she didn't know existed, Nisha realizes that she must also seek answers to the hardest question of all-why?

Weaving together the stories of Nisha, Shilpa, and Devi, The Forgotten Daughter explores powerfully and poignantly the emotional themes of motherhood, loss, and identity - ultimately asking the question, what would you do out of love for your children?

    Story
    "Big On Description"

    Good enough story subject reasonably narrated. I found the endless,endless descriptions of everything tedious and boring especially toward the end of the book. Nesha's sudden ability to remember everything that she had forgotten prior to adoption (with vivid accuracy) was a bit unrealistic, I was also wondering who was funding the hospital bed if ma was so poverty stricken. The recipes are good I tried a couple.
