A desperate woman calls a neighbor before dying in childbirth. Is it a coincidence that she chooses someone who will give her all to save the baby from its unscrupulous father?
When Sudha answers a telephone call in the middle of the night, she cannot know how it will change her life. From the first, she feels a strong connection with the motherless baby. She brings her home and names her after the Arundhati star.
Sudha loves Arundhati—Anu as she calls her—as much as she does her son. She is the daughter of her heart, a precious gift that fate has given her.
As the threat to Anu’s safety increases, Sudha grows desperate and takes a drastic step. Only, it might cost her everything she holds dear . . .
The Morning Star is a story of love and sacrifice and the unseen hand of destiny.
What Readers Are Saying
“This is a beautiful and very moving story, one that lingers in the mind after completing it.” —Grady Harp, Hall of Fame reviewer on amazon.com
“I found this an immersive read which I very much enjoyed and which I heartily recommend.” —Amanda Jenkinson, top reviewer on amazon.uk.
“The author is adept at portraying the nuanced relationships in friendship and marriage. Sudha is a subtly drawn, attractive character who understands the motives and strengths of others but is slower to learn to have confidence in her own strength. Her story is both gripping and sympathetically told; and in the unexpected ending to her search for family, hope and compassion shine through.” —Emma Laybourn, author
