Unexpected Son
About the Book

On a sunny April morning in West Windsor, New Jersey, Vinita Patil wakes up to find an envelope from Mumbai in her mail. The anonymous missive inside it claims that her son is dying of leukaemia and that his survival may depend on her. This confounds Vinita. She has been living with her husband and daughter for twenty-five years in America. She has no son. Or does she . . .

Once upon a time, in a small town in India, a middle-class girl fell in love with an upper-class playboy from her college. The torrid affair inevitably ended in a catastrophe that turned her world upside down. Now, as transgressions from her past threaten to rattle her cozy suburban dream, Vinita must leave behind a family whose faith in her has been shaken and return to her hometown in India that’s on the brink of bedlam. Amidst this turmoil, will Vinita be able to salvage her marriage? Or will secrets from the past wreck her world forever? Find out in this riveting tale of one woman’s emotional journey back home to make amends for blunders made in her youth.
