The Orphan Keeper

A17MGXoWrwL.jpgWhile I’ve been reading a lot about India lately, I couldn’t help but pick up The Orphan Keeper by  Camron Wright (author of a favorite of mine from last year, The Rent Collector). The Orphan Keeper is based on the true story of Chellamuthu who is kidnapped in India and adopted by an American couple. Once he begins to speak, however, and tells his new parents what happened, they lead a search for his birth parents. Compelling idea, no?! This was a long book, but it was written so well that it moved along quickly. I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as The Rent Collector, but it was quite good and I highly recommend it. It’s a wonderful book.
