The author pulled me into the heart of her characters, hijacked my emotions, and captured my attention until the very last page.
The Lost Daughter of India is a poignant story about a twelve-year-old Indian girl who was abducted and sold into prostitution. Although this fictional story takes place in India, it could actually be anywhere in the world. Human trafficking is a horrendous evil that occurs today, even in this modern day twenty-first century.
As a child, Carolyn’s greatest dream was to marry a prince and live in India. Little did she know that her dream would actually come true. She met her Indian prince in Boston, Massachusetts. The two married and moved to India. They thought that their deep love for one another would be enough to overcome any obstacles. But, homesickness led Carolyn back to the United States, leaving her daughter, Asha, behind. It would be, unfortunately, Asha who would pay the ultimate price for Carolyn’s abandonment.
Although the subject matter is disturbing, the story is engrossing and superbly written. The author pulled me into the heart of her characters, hijacked my emotions, and captured my attention until the very last page. I finished the book in one day, simply because I couldn’t put it down. Highly recommended.
Thank you Bookoutour publishing, and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
