       Ganges and Las dos caras de la luna, originally published 
       as separate editions"--P. [v]. 
520 1  "While growing up in an Indian orphanage, Asha Miro 
       dreamed of someday being adopted. Her wish finally came 
       true, but only at the misfortune of another. When Asha was
       six, a Catalan family was in the process of adopting twins
       but one of the children suddenly fell ill and died. This 
       twist of fate led the family to adopt Asha instead. 
       Leaving a life of poverty behind, Asha was given a second 
       chance." "Twenty-one years later, Asha takes a heart-
       wrenching trip back to India to uncover her native roots. 
       Full of unexpected encounters, this adventure informs and 
       touches Asha beyond her expectations. She visits her old 
       orphanage, speaks with her former caretakers, explores the
       land that she might not have ever left, and comes to form 
       a more solid identity. Yet one trip is not enough. Eight 
       years later she returns. This time she journeys to the 
       small rural village where she was born. As well as 
       uncovering the details behind her adoption, she finds the 
       only living member of her immediate Indian family: a 
       sister she never knew she had."--BOOK JACKET.
