Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
Lucky Boy by Shanthi Sekaran, through a heartbreaking story, documents serious societal issues. Infertility. Motherhood. Adoption. Immigration. The book grounds the big issues through the characters of Solimar and Kavya, two mothers deeply and unequivocally in love with a child. I know throughout the book that this book is going to end in sadness for one of them, but I keep furiously reading and unrealistically hoping until the last page that somehow it will work out for both of them.
