Sudha Murty s new book comprises two novellas that explore two quests by two different men both for mothers they never knew they had.

Venkatesh, a bank manager, stumbles upon his lookalike one fine day. When he probes further, he discovers his father s hidden past, which includes an abandoned wife and child. Ventakesh is determined to make amends to his impoverished stepmother but how can he repay his father s debt?

Mukesh, a young man, is shocked to realize after his father s death that he was actually adopted. He sets out to find his biological mother, but the deeper he delves, the more confused he gets about where his loyalties should lie: with the mother who gave birth to him, or with the mother who brought him up.

The Mother I Never Knew is a poignant, dramatic book that reaches deep into the human heart to reveal what we really feel about those closest to us.
