Summary

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?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Eyre moves capably between the voices, giving each woman a unique characterization so that the listener remains oriented through the many flashbacks and recollections. AudioFile
“For this female-centric story, Justine Eyre is the perfect choice. The listener is continually left in suspense as Nisha’s story alternates with chapters told from the perspectives of two other women, Shilpa and Devi. Eyre moves capably between the voices, giving each woman a unique characterization so that the listener remains oriented through the many flashbacks and recollections. She is most successful in bringing to life the vivid personalities of Shilpa and Devi during the period when they live in rural India. Nisha’s point of view is delivered in a clipped British accent that distances the listener, but it’s clear the narration is faithful to the author’s intent.” AudioFile
