Secret Daughter: A Novel by Shilpi Somaya Gowda
Book Club Recommended
Insightful, Informative, Interesting
Secret Daughter

Secret Daughter is a well written book that readers can draw an emotional connections with the characters, but then make you question your decision on just what character you want to support. Very interesting customs practiced in India that make for great discussion.

Not enough of a story line to say it's a great book

I love that the story takes place mainly in the bookstore, but I think the story drags in parts, is predictable in parts and sometimes just frustrating.

What a difficult life

Sometimes stories are difficult to read because you don't want to believe that people actually live this way. This was a good story bringing in the hard to believe conditions in Cambodia.

Facinating story

I never knew about the Book Women of Kentucky and what difficult lives they lived. The twist of genetics was also a new fact for me and quite fascinating.

A sad but fascinating book

This was a fascinating book just reading about the difficulties of living in Alaska year round as well as dealing with PTSD of a military man.
The story was well written and I couldn't put it down.

Save the winery

I like the premise of women in the 80's meeting for book club to discuss trashy novels. I remember reading all those trashy novels mentioned in this when I was young...and not really taking away the women's power message in them.

The story is about a couple with two children who start and run a winery which was at the top of its league and one point and now losing lots of money because Rose wine is a big trend and they don't offer that type of wine. This beautiful estate had years of wine tasting events, showers & weddings managed by the Matriarch & the Chef of the venue.

The whole family gets together for a visit and senses problems with the business. Basically the women of the family spend time together, discover old novels in the library leading to discussions of strong women which inspires them to work together to save the winery business. (less)
