A moving, almost improbable story of how an Indian orphan girl, adopted and brought up by a Catalan couple in Barcelona, returns to India 20 years later to discover her past. Full of unexpected encounters, this adventure informs and touches Asha beyond her expectations. She visits her old orphanage, meets her former caretakers and explores the motherland. But one trip is not enough. Eight years later, she returns, this time to the small, rural village where she was born. Here, she meets the only surviving member of her immediate family, a sister she never knew she had. Originally published in Spanish in 2003.
