Monday Musings 6 Apr

Musing Mondays are hosted by Miz B




Musing Mondays is a weekly meme that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:

I’m currently reading…
Up next I think I’ll read…
I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
I can’t wait to get a copy of…
I wish I could read ___, but…
I blogged about ____ this past week…

I can’t wait to read The Forgotten Daughter by Renita D’Silva.


‘You were adopted’. 
Three simple words, in a letter accompanying her parent’s 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 begins a search for the mother and family she never knew and the awakening of childhood memories long forgotten.

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 of what you would do out of love for your children? 

That was enough to intrigue me. Does this sound like a book you would read?

THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: What was your favorite book as a child?
Now this is a tough question. I can’t think of a single favourite book. There were so many books that I loved. So many authors whose words wove worlds of magic for me. So many authors who took me on a journey to worlds so far away and different from mine. I couldn’t name a favourite, but could tell you stories of how books took me on a magical journey from the time I was little.
