A refreshing addition to the ‘quality chick lit’ genre Jaishree’s books are well written (she used to be a BBC journalist) but what makes them extra enticing is all the colour, flavour and culture of India she embeds in them. We think it’s time to discover one of India’s best-selling novelists. It's a book that will enthral fans of Dorothy Koomson and Erica James among others.
The truth will tear them apart! They had the perfect marriage! Glamour, money, and a beautiful home-- the golden couple of Delhi, Neha and Sharat appear to have it all. But a dark secret from Neha's past is about to resurface, a heartbreaking moment in her past that she has tried to block out. While studying at Oxford, a naive eighteen year-old Neha fell pregnant and made the difficult decision to give the baby up for adoption, vowing never to contact her child again. But now, years later, her little girl -- Sonya -- is now a fully grown woman and determined to find her birth mother. With the foundation of Neha's and Sharat's world rocked to its very core, will Sonya's arrival in Delhi push it over the edge? And as Sonya begins to confront Neha, can mother and daughter allow themselves to forgive and forget?
