The Lost Daughter of India by Sharon Maas. Published by Bookouture

Caroline is head over heels in love with Kamal and can’t wait to start a new life with him in India. It doesn’t matter to the lovebirds that both sets of parents heartily disagree with their union and the couple goes on to have a daughter they name Asha. But Caroline begins to struggle with severe post partum depression. Kamal is gone more often than he is home and Caroline begins to loathe the small, remote village they live in. Desperately homesick, she does the unthinkable and leaves Asha behind to return home. Ten years later Caroline finally has her mental health issues resolved and she journeys back to india to reunite with Kamal and find the child she left behind so many years before. While Caroline’s actions seems unforgivable, it’s well known today that post partum depression can have a terrible effect on women who suffer from it.
