This got my feelings worked up and in a mix of relief and sadness and anger, I closed the book. I couldn't decide whether I was ok with that ending.
Reading the Afterword, made me understand, that there wasn't one correct outcome. That is life I guess. Sometimes you get hurt and it is unfair.
The writing in itself was sometimes very lengthy and slowly progressing. Still it didn't feel boring. We just follow the story in a slower pace and the story builds up for both perspectives.
We get to know the struggles and heartbreaks of both sides and thus build up understanding and empathy towards both sides. I think it was not only intentional by the author, but also necessary to make the reader feel what they'll surely feel at the end.
The book definetly left me with very mixed feelings. And it is not my usual read and tbh, not a book I'd pick up again very soon.
Not because I disliked it, but because it just felt to confusing for my own emotional state at this moment in my life. Trigger Warnings: Rape, Miscarriage, physical abuse, death, racism, abduction.
Oct 24, Lorilin rated it it was amazing Shelves: arc , fiction. Soli Valdez is eighteen and desperate to leave Mexico. Bored with the day-to-day monotony of her quiet existence, shes ready for an adventure.
So she makes a plan to meet up with her older cousin who lives in Berkeley, California. If she can just make it across the border, her cousin assures her there will be a job and a place to stay waiting for her.
Soli does make it to California, but not before enduring, well, a lot. When she finally arrives at Silvias doorstep, she is dirty, beaten, abused Soli Valdez is eighteen and desperate to leave Mexico.
Silvia demands Soli abort the baby, but Soli refuses. Nine months later, her son, Ignacio, is born, and Soli is happy—still existing precariously, but absolutely in love with her son.
Thirty-something Kavya Reddy, on the other hand, is not so happy. Sure, her life is stable and fulfilling in some ways. Even after months of fertility treatments, nothing.
Finally, when she can take it no longer, she and her husband, Rishi, decide to pursue adoption. Kavya and Rishi are ready to begin the process of adopting a baby girl, when Kavya spots toddler Ignacio at the adoption center.
She feels a connection with him immediately and asks about fostering him. As you might imagine, this does not deter Soli from getting her child back one bit.
I loved and hated this book. I felt about it the same way I felt about The Language of Flowers : it is so exquisitely written, but also ruthlessly, unbearably sad.
Honestly, about pages in, when I understood where things were going, I had to put the book down for a couple days.
The things Soli goes through… Kavya, too… And poor Ignacio caught in the middle… To be so powerless is an awful thing.
Throughout the book, I felt for both women. Even the ending, though sad, felt whole and satisfying to me. Ultimately, this is a beautiful book—rich and layered and complex.
ARC provided through Amazon Vine. See more of my book reviews at www. This book is so timely with all of the immigration issues that our country is facing right now, this novel couldnt have come out at a better time.
For me this book is personal in several ways. He from Oaxaca city in Mexico and I just visited there 2 years ago. One of my daughters has gone through 3 years of infertility work ups culminating in 4 failed in vitro attempts.
I have been with her through all of the struggles, frustration, heartbreak, etc that goes with infertility. This book is very well researched and well written.
The characters are fully developed and there is much attention to detail. I felt as though I was riding with Soli Castro as she made her very harrowing trip to the United States.
She has the baby, Ignacio, and falls in love with him instantly only to have him taken away when she is sent to a detention center before deportation.
When Soli and her cousin are detained it is through a fluke accident that they are found to be illegal. The other main characters are Kavya and Rishi Reddy, who have spent all of their savings on infertility treatments which have just led to frustration and heartbreak.
They have quite a long time with him in which they are deeply in love with the little boy and have high hopes of adopting him. They are headed for heartbreak.
This novel refers largely to policies which existed in As of this reading, immigration law has largely remained unchanged and more than five million children in the US have at least one undocumented parent.
I felt the characters were very believable and relatable and I think anyone would appreciate this beautifully written book. I think it would be a good choice for a book club with many timely topics to discuss.
Thank you to the author and publisher for an ARC of this book. View 1 comment. Dec 20, Lynne rated it it was amazing. Outstanding writing about the disastrous state of our immigration system as told through the eyes of an immigrant.
This was very thought provoking to me. Considering the title; I'm left wondering is it really so? Jun 30, St.
This is one of those books that I couldn't put down. Lucky Boy is family saga involving two different woman of separate socio-economic and cultural backgrounds.
The first is illegal Mexican immigrant Solimar "Soli" Castro who is pregnant and makes a harrowing journey across the California border and into the city of Berkley.
The other is Kavya Reddy of Indian descent who struggles with infertility. Both their paths cross when Soli is jailed for fraud and illegal immigration leading for Kavya and This is one of those books that I couldn't put down.
Both their paths cross when Soli is jailed for fraud and illegal immigration leading for Kavya and her husband Rishi to adopt Soli's son Ignacio "Iggy" which turns into a bitter custody battle between the couple and the mother.
Stedman's The Light Between Oceans, Lucky Boy contains various themes from motherhood, the influences of parenting, culture, xenophobia, socio-economics, and even the hot topic political debate concerning immigration.
Author Shanthi Sekaran does a really good job with presenting two contrasting lives that diametrically opposite of one another.
Soli is from an impoverished background and sees coming to America as an escape from her dreary life. However, her suffrage and the difficult struggles she forced to endure only fuels her bitterness.
Still, her son Iggy provides the only good thing in her life despite all the hardships she had to face. On the other side, Kavya has led more of a charmed life as she is married to a successful husband and a good career.
Despite the pressures faced upon her by her culture and her overbearing mother, she still longs to have a child of her own and adopting Iggy fulfills that dream.
The sacrifices of motherhood is a constant within in the book. First from Soli who suffers during her incarceration but still holds up hope of reuniting with Iggy and second, from Kavya who is wants to be the perfect mother unlike her own.
Each side is flawed and the author does showcase this which becomes a good question to ponder to whom Iggy should rightfully stay with.
Even with the realistic ending, there is still that lingering question and truthfully, neither side appears to be in the best interest of the child.
Again, this is a great book to meditate over. I would have rated it five stars but I found that the book could easily be trimmed a bit. Some of the parts concerning Kavya's and Rishi's friends and social circle a bit redundant and really didn't help much in the storytelling.
Certainly, the presentation of Kavya's controlling mother was significant in shaping who she is as a person but again I found myself more fascinated by Soli's story than the couple.
Still, this is a wonderful book to recommend for Book Clubs! Jan 30, Barbara rated it it was amazing Shelves: adult-fiction , domestic-fiction , literature.
In writing this novel, author Shanthi Sekaram was inspired by a news report of an undocumented Guatemalan woman who was attempting to regain custody of her son who was being adopted by his foster parents.
She was interested in the motivations of both parties; she wanted to understand both parties. Sekaram is a first generation American whose parents were fortunate to find a workable way to live legally in the USA.
The plight of undocumented immigrants are an interest to her; she sees her life as In writing this novel, author Shanthi Sekaram was inspired by a news report of an undocumented Guatemalan woman who was attempting to regain custody of her son who was being adopted by his foster parents.
The plight of undocumented immigrants are an interest to her; she sees her life as lucky in that her parents possessed skills and were from a country that the USA prefer.
The politics of undocumented immigrants are an important issue to her. In this story, a young Mexican girl, Soli, goes through horrendous conditions to get illegally into the United States.
Her destination is Berkley, CA because she has a cousin who is documented and successfully living there. The reader learns of the sad health resources that are available to immigrants.
Soon after her baby boy is a year old, Soli unwittingly gets involved in a traffic incident that exposes her to the authorities.
Her son is taken away from her, placed in social services, as she is remanded to immigrant detention. Kavya and Rishi are first generation Americans whose parents emigrated from India.
After undergoing heart wrenching fertility issues, they decide to adopt a child. They decide to go through the foster care system, and become foster parents interested in adopting.
They fall immediately in love with the boy. Sekaran does a fabulous job creating endearing characters.
Sekaran also illuminates the horrors that many undocumented immigrants go through to get to the USA.
She shows how these people just want to work and live their lives in peace. She also studied the laws that govern these children of undocumented workers.
In general, the judge that resides the case generally determines the rights of the undocumented. I highly recommend this timely novel as one that exemplifies immigrations issues, especially for those immigrants who want to be part of the country, and the difficulties posed to them to be documented.
This would be a fabulous book club read. Shelves: adult-fiction , settingst-cent , asian-and-aa-authors , setting-usa , race-class-and-gender , politics-society-and-religion , book-club-material , prose-before-bros , favorites , indie-next.
Ughhhh book hangover. I read more than pages yesterday. Then I frantically tried to finish on the train this morning but had to slow down to savor the last few pages because I realized I didn't want it to end.
This is one of my new go-to reading recommendations. This beautiful Ughhhh book hangover. This beautiful novel follows two parallel stories in nearby Berkeley: one of an undocumented Mexican immigrant and the other of a middle-class Indian couple struggling with infertility.
This book is especially relevant given the conversations around immigration in today's America, but I would recommend it anyway based on the engaging storytelling, vibrant setting and well-developed characters.
You might have an opinion about who is wrong and who is right, but as the publisher declares, 'There are no bad guys in this story.
Jan 08, Kathleen rated it really liked it. If John Gardner is to be believed, then there are only two plots in all of literature: "A person goes on a journey" and "A stranger comes to town.

One of the novel's paired protagonists, year-old Solimar Castro-Valdez, or Soli, bravely sets off on the fraught journey to cross the border from Mexico to the United States, only to arrive without legal permission and unexpectedly pregnant.
Her parents pay a smuggler to help her leave her tiny, forlorn village, Santa Clara Popocalco, because it "offered no work, only the growing and eating of a few stalks of corn," and because she "wanted California, and she wanted it badly enough that anyone who threatened to take it away … would have to be ignored.
If this is a dream, it is a dream made solid, a dream grown to a little boy with a waist and shoulders, calves that wrap around his mother's hips.
Beautifully written novel which could be a true story. As a Court Appointed Special Advocate who recommends to the court the best home for a juvenile, this book brings the attention to the fact that many times an illegal immigrant has no control over the fate of their child through no fault of their own.
Which is better for a child - to be raised in a home where a mother can barely provide for her child or in a two parent, loving, financially solvent environment, that offers every opportunity to a child?
Timely issue, but unfortunately this book suffers from too much "writing" and not enough emotional connection with Kavya and Rishi, two of the main characters.
For me they seemed distant and self-absorbed, so I couldn't feel to much sympathy for them. A beautiful story told through beautiful writing.
Compared to this novel, most others I have read over a lifetime cannot compare. Each time I believed this story would take an expected path, the author surprises with a creative direction.
The characters learn life lessons without moral issues being forced on the reader. Family dynamics are explored, love between a couple, a mother and child, a child and a couple who are not its biological parents, between friends and even co-workers move this story to a stunning conclusion.
Almost from the beginning, I found this book hard to put down. There are two alternate story lines between an infertile Indian couple and an illegal young Mexican immigrant who has a baby shortly after making it to the US.
The parts about Soli, the Mexican young woman, were very moving and she seemed like a real person.
The story then has their lives connect and you aren't really sure how the novel should end. The characters and situation of these two families, stays with you long after you've finished the novel.
Our book club read the book and found it both painful and intriguing to read. The boy was, indeed, lucky to have two women who truly loved him and wanted the best for him.
The differing cultures of the mothers was a fascinating contrast and produced some interesting discussions in our group.
The experiences of the birth mother in getting to the US was difficult to read and a reminder of some current situations at our border with Mexico.
I personally was not happy with the ending because I see the mother continuing to repeat her mistakes and feel the boy will suffer, as a result.
The rest of the group had mixed emotions on this. It's a tough subject, immigration. But then the inhumanity of it makes me want to shout so everyone who has an uninformed opinion will take the time to learn what it means to be an immigrant, both legal and undocumented.
The author does an excellent job of story telling without bias and judgement. She just lays it out. And we, the readers, have the opportunity to learn.
See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. I don't know if Ignacio could really be called a lucky boy at the end of this beautifully written and moving story.
There were no real winners but my hopes for the two mothers who so desperately wanted him and loved him and Rishi too who was so living sees-sawed throughout this book.
I don't know anything about the American legal system or the date of illegal immigrants from across the border to America from Mexico but show they are treated as depicted in this book, is harsh and cruel and I am not clear about the rights of a birth mother who brings a child to life on American soil or the child and mother's rights to stay in the States - but I do know that the writing is very good, pulls in my heartstrings and moved me.
I grew to care for Solimar from Santa Clara Popocalco helpless in a place with no work and no prospects and seeking a better life.
I also grew to admire Kavya and Rishi who wanted a child of their own to love and nurture. A little over long in the telling, a great, well drawn cast of characters, - l loved Uma and Pretti Patel - all eminently human..
The dialogue was wonderful. Overall, a really lovely, well written and moving book. Witty, cruel kind and well done All of humanity there.
Thoroughly enjoyed it. Report abuse. This is a very moving and at times painfully graphic book. The truly desperate journey that so many poor and hopeless young Mexicans make to El Norte is described in searing detail.
The precarious existence of the undocumented immigrants, the fear of the knock at the door, the ghastly conditions of incarceration As are the battles over one small boy.
I thoroughly recommend this book, particularly now, in , it should be required reading. I loved the way the characters alternated stories between the chapters , at first seemingly separate but eventually crossing and merging.
I am not sure what the correct answer is to the problem I could feel for both sides equally. Accidentally discovered by a friend and recommended, loved the narration.
Gives a gripping view about the Iives of immigrants in the US. Enjoyed it. Very timely with current issues in the US. Customers who bought this item also bought.
