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?

somewhat confusing

What did you like best about The Forgotten Daughter? What did you like least?

It's a good story, however their are a lot of metaphors and similes layered one after another. So that the thread of the story slows incredibly and on an audiobook, it's very easy to get lost. Combined with the three different perspectives, I think this could be better in written form.

Good story, but to long.

The story is interesting and well told, but the author spends an inordinate amount of time describing everything around the characters the entire book. Sights and smells are described in great detail, making the book unnecessarily much longer.
