The mother I never knew : two novellas by Sudhā Mūrti( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What secrets lurk in a family's past-and how important are they in the here and now? Sudha Murty's new book comprises two novellas that explore two quests by two different men-both for mothers they never knew they had. Venkatesh, a bank manager, stumbles upon his lookalike one fine day. When he probes further, he discovers his father's hidden past, which includes an abandoned wife and child. Ventakesh is determined to make amends to his impoverished stepmother-but how can he repay his father's debt? Mukesh, a young man, is shocked to realize after his father's death that he was actually adopted. He sets out to find his biological mother, but the deeper he delves, the more confused he is about where his loyalties should lie: with the mother who gave birth to him, or with the mother who brought him up. The Mother I Never Knew is a poignant, dramatic book that reaches deep into the human heart to reveal what we really feel about those closest to us
