There is no doubt that Shobhan Bantwal has joined the ranks of such genuine Indian storytellers as Anita Rau Badami, Neil Bissondath, and others.

In her impressive prose, Bantwal provides a provocative tour through the minefield of the illicit feticide trade... The author deftly builds up the excitement . . . A page turner, The Forbidden Daughter is an eye opener uncovering a strange "modern" custom."
