    Non fiction brings forth the realities of life and this book is no exception, it seems.

    Adoption is a very sensitive yet important aspect of the society. I was not aware that there is a book on this subject but your review let me know. Thanks for that and am going to read it.

      Love your review Ritu… you’ve written it so beautifully. I guess the book is equally brilliant, more so as it isn’t fiction. Thank you for the recommendation.

    This book reminds me of Operation Babylift when the Vietnam war ended. Adoption is very sensitive. It is good to see more rules now so that it is not misused.

    This read is going to be interesting. The story seems to be heartening and love to know what happens with the twins and what all legalities are involved. Will grab my copy.

    Adoption by itself is complex, add in race and nationality differences and mix it up with nature vs nurture (twins). Great pick and succinct review Ritu!

    Wow this seems like an interesting book and th topic is equally powerful. Adoption is now becoming quite common in India also yet it is a very sensitive issue when introduced in the family. Would love to read this book. Your review is very heartwarming!

    This sounds like the plot of an 80s masala movie but is a reality. Their accounts must be interesting to know as adoption, although not uncommon, still needs wholehearted acceptance.

    What a riveting premise! I’ve been looking for books outside my staples, so definitely adding this to my TBR.

    This is such a sensitive topic. I am staying away from sad or traumatic content nowadays, but I might pick this up later to read, as this is real.

    Adopting a child is both a delicate and necessary component of society. It is encouraging to see more rules being implemented now to prevent it from being abused. You reviewed it beautifully.

    Such a heart warming story. Adoption is such a sensitive topic. We really don’t know how our lives would turn out to be and all we can do is be grateful for what is given to us. In any way you look at it, there’s much to be grateful with wherever they ended up with.

    What a twist of fate when one twin gets adopted. An amazing tale of love and I wonder what kind of lives each one of us lives across the globe. Every life seems to have a struggle, which is exclusive and has a story of its own. Loved the review, Ritu. You bring out the soul of the book.

    Though not a fiction, the book seems to tell a compelling and moving story. As usual Iam amazed by the variety in your reading and most of your recommendations have turned out to be wonderful books.
