Anil and Leena, childhood friends growing up in India face two different paths in life. Anil moves to America to pursue his dream of being a doctor. He feels like he doesn’t belong there, but at the same time he feels that he no longer belongs in India either. There is an “undeniable push and pull between the land that had borne him and the one he had chosen.” “He was a dweller of two lands.” We follow his journey in America and his trips back to India and the inner turmoil he suffers.

Meanwhile, Leena is married to a horrible man and suffers greatly. She endures some truly horrible things. Without spoiling anything, I was really rooting for these two to end up together in the end, but I won’t say if they do or not.

I loved the colorful and vibrant setting in India. I sympathized with Anil’s struggles and I hoped for Leena to escape her horrible marriage. This was a great book! ( )

Five stunning, incredible stars. This book goes on my Best of All Time list, no question. These characters will stay with me for a long, long time. I don’t want to leave Anil’s world. Highly recommend this book to just about anyone. A beautiful, moving, heart-wrenching story. ( )

This is a compelling story about an oldest son who dreams to leave the prosperous farm and become a doctor in the US. It is also about his childhood friend, a young women, and the awful treatment she receives from her in-laws, and how few the options for women. Interesting from many perspectives, including being an immigrant in the US. The writing was pedestrian, but seemed to become smoother as the story progressed. Really good read overall. ( )

In her second novel, Shilpi Somaya Gowda again deploys rich plotting and finely embroidered storytelling to reveal fascinating and sometimes disturbing elements of Indian culture...Gowda keeps her readers tethered to compelling, universal human themes — heartbreak and avarice among them.

“The Golden Son” wrestles with dilemmas faced by many immigrants who come here to fulfill their dreams. The protagonist, Anil, is a conflicted young Indian — the titular “golden son” — attempting to adjust to America. And the perils of being a woman in India are also explored in the novel, which interweaves the tale of Anil’s childhood friend Leena, who lives a traditional rural life back home. (The author was born in Canada to Indian immigrant parents.)
 
Like The Secret Daughter,The Golden Son is also a page-turner. Gowda is a gifted storyteller, bringing together various related story strands into a fully integrated whole.... Gowda gives readers a glimpse of what life might be like for someone arriving in America for the first time after growing up in a small Indian village....
The portrait Gowda draws of the people of India is also interesting, with the many layers of society and traditions ruling the everyday life of almost everyone.In The Golden Son, Gowda has created another well-crafted and interesting story

 
Her specialty is a formula based on parallel stories made up of a not-so-subtle mix of tragedy and hope, and then more tragedy and more hope with a few more obstacles and mishaps thrown in before a happy ending...Gowda can write up moments that break your heart whether it is when Leena’s mother first sees her daughter on her return or when Anil learns from a woman dying from cancer that medicine is not just about technology....The Golden Son combines the immigrant novel with a fascination for the insecure and dependent lives of rural women in India. The book does not finish with the most predictable ending, but a version of happily ever after does take place. And yes, it evoked a few tears, too.
