Anil is the eldest son of a traditional Indian family, but his father has always had great plans for Anil to become a doctor. When Anil moves to Dallas to pursue a residency, he leaves his family behind to run the family business. He also learns what it is like to be free and single in the 21st century which can be both fun and dangerous. When Anil's father becomes ill, he is faced with a tough decision. Should he return home and take over the head of the family, or should he finish the plans his father expressly made for him? I really enjoyed this story, and loved the setting.
This book which takes place partially in Texas and partially in India was a good, very readable story that will be enjoyed by anyone who likes to be immersed into other cultures. I am a bit critical of what I consider to be numerous dropped story threads but it didn't stop me from enjoying the book. Well worth reading if you like a multi-cultural family story. Anyone who has read and enjoyed the author's previous book called The Secret Daughter should really pick this newest book up.
Excellent story about the India culture...cant wait to read other novels by this author
Couldn't put this book down! Good insight into rural life & customs in India contrasting with a new life in Texas.
excellent story about the cultures of India and USA; human interest story
An okay to good book, but I wouldn't recommend it. While it does give a peak into the Punjab culture I found the storyline predictable.
We use the term "golden son" in my culture. As soon as I saw the title, I had an inkling about what the book would be about. I really enjoyed this book. I found it to be culturally interesting and the pages flowed nicely. I haven't read the author's first book yet, but now I think I will!
Very good book,that's easy to read.and explores the conflicts a young person of any religion or race faces when having to come to terms with their own views on these customs and those of their parents.Issue of choices one makes in relationships and job choice .Many moral issues wound into an interesting story.
I liked Gowda's second book almost as much as the first. The characters and storyline were well developed, and not predictable. At times, it felt like the action was slow paced in the middle of the book.
Such a fantastic book, could not put it down. Just like Shilpi's first book.
