SECRET LIVES OF MOTHERS & DAUGHTERS Cover & Update!

I’m thrilled to finally be able to share news with you about my upcoming release and Women’s Fiction debut, “Secret Lives of Mothers & Daughters.” We had some last-minute changes to the title and cover, so I haven’t been able to spread the word until now. (Some of you might recall its previous titles “Asha & Mala” and “Caught in a Lie.”) After two long years of work and waiting, it feels AMAZING to be at this point!

The book is now available for PRE-ORDER! The official release date for Canada is January 28th, and it will be coming out on February 18th in the US, UK, AUS and NZ. You’ll find a synopsis and links below! I appreciate your generosity in sharing this info with family, friends and acquaintances who you think might enjoy it. I’m also active on social media across all platforms and would love to connect with you there. I’ve included my Goodreads details below. If you’re able to drop by and add the book to your “want to read” list, I would be so grateful. Of course, I deeply appreciate every follow, like, share, and review. Thank you so much for your support and I can’t wait for you to read this book you’ve been hearing snippets about for the past couple of years! Woohoo!
With love and gratitude,

SYNOPSIS:

For readers of Shilpi Somaya Gowda’s “Secret Daughter” and Nancy Richler’s “The Imposter Bride”, a breathtaking novel from Anita Kushwaha about the ties that bind mothers and daughters together and the secrets that tear them apart.

Veena, Mala and Nandini are three very different women with something in common. Out of love, each bears a secret that will haunt her life—and that of her daughter—when the risk of telling the truth is too great. But secrets have consequences. Particularly to Asha, the young woman on the cusp of adulthood who links them together.

On the day after her eighteenth birthday, Asha is devastated to learn that she was adopted as a baby. What’s more, her birth mother died of a mysterious illness, leaving Asha with only a letter.

Nandini, Asha’s adoptive mother, has always feared the truth would come between them.

Veena, a recent widow, worries about her daughter Mala’s future. The shock of her husband’s sudden death leaves her shaken and convinces her that the only way to keep her daughter safe is to secure her future.

Mala struggles to balance her dreams and ambition with her mother’s expectations. She must bear a secret, the burden of which threatens her very life.

Three mothers, bound by love, deceit and a young woman who connects them all. “Secret Lives of Mothers & Daughters” is an intergenerational novel about family, duty and the choices we make in the name of love.
