Idyllwild Library's Fireside Book Group will read Shilpi Somaya Gowda's book, "The Golden Son". "Anil is the cherished son of a large family in rural India. As the eldest boy, he is expected to inherit the role of leader of his clan and arbiter of its disputes, dispensing wisdom and good advice. Leena is his closest companion, a fiercely brave girl who loves nothing more than the wild terrain they inhabit and her close-knit family. As childhood friends, they are inseparable until their paths diverge. . . . Anil is the first person in his family to leave India, the first to attend college, the first to become a doctor, half a world away in Dallas, Texas." As the story unfolds, it becomes a "choice between responsibility and freedom, and between loyalty and love." ~ excerpts from book description.
