Summary

One woman. One impossible choice. Her daughter or her happiness....

When Caroline meets Kamal, the attraction is instant. He's enchanting, charismatic, and she can't wait to set up a new life with him in India. Both their families are against the union, but Caroline is convinced they'll come round, especially when she gives birth to a beautiful daughter, Asha.

Asha is an adorable child but Caroline, homesick and beginning to hate the remote Indian village they live in, struggles with motherhood. Kamal is hardly ever there and she feels more and more isolated. In the grips of severe depression Caroline flees back to America, leaving Asha behind.

Ten years later....

Caroline recovered from her illness and is consumed by thoughts of the daughter she abandoned. Desperate to find Asha, she reunites with Kamal, intent on tracking her down. Will they ever be able to find their lost daughter? If they have any chance, they must confront the painful truths of the past and a terrible secret that has been kept for many years, until now.

A heart-breaking and beautifully written story of loss, secrets, and the strength of a mother's love against all odds. If you enjoyed Diane Chamberlain and Lucinda Riley then this book will find its way into your heart and stay there.

Enthralling Entertainment with the spice of real

This is my first experience of Audible and I am totally hooked. I don't usually binge on anything, but I had to keep listening. The narrator, Naomi Frederick, takes you into India with the descriptive text of Sharon Maas and every character is beautifully described vocally so that you know exactly who is speaking.

This is a most rewarding and satisfying experience..

Very moving and informative read

Really enjoyed this book and was both sad and happier in parts. I did find it slow in parts but glad I stuck with it. I enjoyed the prologue and further updates at end of book.
