Daughter of the Ganges by Asha Miro
Book DescriptionThis powerful memoir tracing a young woman's journey into her past is a deeply affecting story about love, fate and the true meaning of belonging. 'Your father and I wanted to have the children which nature could not give us, and you were clamouring for the parents you were denied. Now we have come to the end of that page. It is time to turn over and start a new one, as much for you as for us.' Adopted from an orphanage in India at age seven, the only real home Asha Miro knew was in the centre of cosmopolitan Barcelona. Twenty years later Asha returns to her birthplace, determined to recover the missing pieces of her early life. But nothing could prepare Asha for India's assault on her senses and buried memories - or the shock that she had apparently been abandoned by her parents. But her journey into the past eventually leads her to the truth and a turning point that makes it all worthwhile - finding a sister she never knew existed, also called Asha, the only surviving member of her family. The joyous reunion of the two sisters, whose destinies could not have been more different - the ultimate in the 'sliding doors' of fate - changes both their lives forever. Interspersed
