A House For Happy Mothers is the story of two women and what it means to bring a child into this world. In America, Priya and Madhu are a married couple that has gone through several miscarriages and with Priya really wanting to have a baby, she explores all options in which leads them to India. In India, Asha and Pratap are raising their young family with a gifted five year old and the need to earn more money to send him to a better school.
When Pratap's sister-in-law finds that being a surrogate is easy money which leads to Pratap wanting Asha to do that even though Asha is against it but she is willing to do anything for her boy. With the doctor pushing for Asha to send her son to this one school, as she comes to find out with the help of Priya and her mother, that he might have a different motive for that. It all leads to a baby being born and two women learning what it means to be a mother.
This book was easy to spend a couple hours reading but while reading it, it makes you think about what is really going on in the surrogacy world. To me, Priya was a little pushy at times and I felt more for Asha than anything for what she had to do against her wishes. Overall it was a pretty good book with a story-line that will get anyone talking.
