I have to share this book. I'm only one-quarter of the way through it but it is shaping up to be what could be a top book for 2012 for me. It's by Shilpi Somaya Gowda. I think the WL is long but it's well worth it!!

The copy that was in the system apparently had a "short ISBN". The "similar to your WL" PMs are never sent on books with short ISBNs.

I finished the book a couple days ago -- it was incredible! It's going to take a really great one to beat it!

Thanks again Susan for this post, I just finished that copy that was on PBS and it was so good!!!!!!!  She did a wonderful job of capturing the emotions of all the people involved in this international adoption.  This book brought me to tears a quite a few times.  It was just lovely; it made me want to hold my daughter even closer!

It looks like an amazing book - my local library has a copy so I'll pick it up tomorrow :)

 

WOW!!!  Thank you for the suggestion Susan - I read it in 4 hours - I couldn't put it down (other than to grab for the tissue box)  absolutely AWESOME book!

I've had this one sitting in my TBR for a while... Thanks for the reviews! Guess I'll have to bump it up on my reading list.
