any book by this author and even though I had no idea about her previous books or her writing style this book simply won my heart The world of surrogacy isn't that explored or talked about or penned about by the authors and the subject of surrogacy has always been a mystery to me so the blurb of the book lured me to grab a copy of this book and start reading instantly And glad I read this book the author vividly showed me the truth and emotional struggle behind the expensive world of surrogacy Penned with evocative feelings that is bound to move the readers deeply all through the tale this book is an extremely poignant one The writing style of the author is brilliant and elouent laced with deep emotions The narrative is eually engaging and articulate and sways gently with its free flowing movement The pacing is smooth as the story is crafted with enough unforeseeable moments that will keep the readers glued to the book Also the issues addressed by the author especially the journey of a woman who is bearing a child which is not her flesh and blood is very well portrayed by the author with raw emotions and sentiments that will make the readers sympathize with her ordeal The author has done her research really well as she has intricately depicted the reality behind the white washed walls covered with promising and glossy family pictures of any surrogate centers of the country But the author's focus primarily remained on the lives of the two women where one is pregnant and the other is eagerly and happily looking after the other one's family And surrogacy can bring two families with no blood ties closer than one can ever imagine and that is wonderfully captured by the author into this book The characters are really well developed by the author as they depict realism honesty and emotions that are highly relatable to the eyes of the readers Priya is a complex woman but why wouldn't she be considering the challenges she has faced in life and also she has many layers to her personality Asha is a simple housewife a mother and a wife with only one dream to give proper education to her son and her determination is the driving point of this story as she goes through an emotional upheaval yet holds tight to her promise of delivering and giving away the child she is carrying in her womb The secondary characters are also very interestingly penned especially the husbands of both the women In a nutshell this is a must read book about motherhood and compassion for all contemporary fiction readersVerdict Poignant and captivating to its very core

Is it exploitation or is it helping that woman climb out of poverty? In a patriarchal society is the woman really making the decision or is she being pressured into it by a husband? Lots of very interesting uestions ariseThe book is well written Most characters are well developed and the storyline was fascinating to me I’ve never had that baby lust that drives the plot but I was still turning the pages to see how everything played out It’s a book that makes you think and I was still thinking long after I had turned the last page
