A House For Happy Mothers By: Amulya Malladi

Book Description....

"A stunning new novel—full of wit and warmth—from the bestselling author of The Mango Season.

In trendy Silicon Valley, Priya has everything she needs—a loving husband, a career, and a home—but the one thing she wants most is the child she’s unable to have. In a Southern Indian village, Asha doesn’t have much—raising two children in a tiny hut, she and her husband can barely keep a tin roof over their heads—but she wants a better education for her gifted son. Pressured by her family, Asha reluctantly checks into the Happy Mothers House: a baby farm where she can rent her only asset—her womb—to a childless couple overseas. To the dismay of friends and family, Priya places her faith in a woman she’s never met to make her dreams of motherhood come true.

Together, the two women discover the best and the worst that India’s rising surrogacy industry has to offer, bridging continents and cultures to bring a new life into the world—and renewed hope to each other."

My Thoughts...

I found this story quite one unique wonderful well written story in that it was such a very interesting
subject that will keep the readers attention to the end.  A couple from the California who was struggling with infertility and now was to get a surrogate. Now, how will this come  out with this surrogate living so far away in India?  However, the story proved to be a good attention keeper and the characters were for the most part very developed, defined and believable giving the story an interesting as well as a intriguing read.  The author gives the reader something to really to think about as she shows the many aspects of what goes on with the surrogate as with all the emotions that are involved in doing this for another person.  Not only is about the surrogate and her husband but also the new mom, her husband along with grandparents, relatives and even friends who are all involved in one way or another by the time this story will ends.  It is quite interesting how this author gives the reader a story that shows the two portraying women ...with two opposing experiences that all sides with almost the same issues. I enjoyed how the author brought out the cultural, social expects and views of some of the life as to living India [Southern Indian village].  I felt that this was a good story of how a desperate a person who really wants a baby will go and how a poverty sicken  mom who was in need financially will go to what end for her family to become a surrogate mom.  I did find the title:  "A House For Happy Mother" somewhat ...well, I will say you the reader will have to read and decide for it for yourself ...were the mom's who were being the surrogate moms really happy at what they were having to do in order to survive? 

So, in the end will this story have a HEA as the story deals with the two moms?  I did find this story quite a one different read in that Priya 'sought to understand this surrogate [Asha]and even found a way to even help this family with the education of their son' and she definitely didn't have to do that! Now, I will stop at this point and say you must pick up this read to see how this story will end. Will there be happiness for all?    Would I recommend "A House For Happy Mothers?"  Yes, it's a very thought provoking read that will leave you with many thoughts long after the read.
