Its a girl! For most young couples, news of their unborn childs gender brings joyful anticipation. Not so for Isha Tilak and her husband, Nikhil. They already have a beloved daughter, but Nikhils parents, hard-wired to favor male children above all, coldly reject little Priya at every turn.

Vain and selfish, they see female grandchildren as burdens, and would just as soon never meet the one growing in Ishas belly. Even the obstetrician agrees, going so far as to suggest the unthinkable, throwing Nikhil into a rage--and changing Ishas life forever. . .When Nikhil is discovered brutally murdered, Isha is convinced it had something to do with his reaction to the doctors hideous solution to their problem.

Alone, grief-stricken, and relentlessly oppressed by in-laws who believe her baby is a bad omen, Isha sets out on her own. Born into a privileged class, Isha doesnt know the first thing about fending for herself, but to protect her precious daughters, she will learn. And she will cling to the hope given to her by a strange old mystic: that her baby will arrive on the auspicious night of Kojagari Purnima, the full harvest moon, and be a gift from Lakshmi, the goddess of well-being.

Isha and her girls will need all the blessings they can get, for the greatest danger of all lies ahead. . .Praise for Shobhan Bantwal and The Dowry BrideSplendidly depicts passion, brutality, and cultures in conflict. --Dorothy GarlockVivid, rich. . .expertly portrays a young woman caught between love and duty, hope and despair. --Anjali Banerjee
