A new favourite author - #100happydays - Day 72


This is my third book by the author Amulya Malladi. I picked up Mango Season quite be chance from the library because I liked the cover, but I fell in love with her way of writing and on finishing that book managed to find one more at the library, Serving Crazy with Curry. The second book was even better. 

A House for Happy Mother explores surrogacy in India. After three miscarriages, Silicon Valley residents Priya and Madhu make one more attempt at parenthood, this time via a surrogate in Madhu’s native India. The surrogate, Asha, already has two children, but is lacking in everything else. Searching for a way to secure a good future for her gifted son, she reluctantly agrees to carry Priya and Madhu's baby inside her. While Priya’s choices are questioned by her family and friends in the United States, Asha must hide her pregnancy for fear of societal shaming, residing in the Happy Mother’s House away from her family for most of her pregnancy. 

I am halfway through the book at this point and can feel the emotions the two lead women are going through as the author has described them beautifully. Can't wait to see how this one turns out at the end!

This is a part of MY #100happydays challenge - a way to remind myself to pause and find happiness in the little things in life and to live in the moment. To be grateful for all that I have, every single day. Hopefully you will join me in this journey of self discovery and find your own happiness along the way.
