I couldn’t have been more thrilled when Shilpe Somaya Gowda, New York Times Bestselling Author of Secret Daughter wrote:
“At the Heart of the Universe is a moving exploration of what it means to be a family in this global world, and the complications of love within it. These characters are heartbreaking in both their flaws and yearnings, and by the ending, I had tears in my eyes.”
I highly recommend both of her books as well! Shilpi Somaya Gowda was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. In college, she spent a summer as a volunteer in an Indian orphanage, which seeded the idea for her first novel, Secret Daughter, published in 2010. It became an international bestseller, selling well over a million copies worldwide in over 30 languages and countries. I’m grateful to part of this literary community.
