The Good Woman Book Review @BookSparksPR

Jane Porter’s The Good Woman is her best book yet!  Porter is known for her emotional, heartfelt stories about women struggling with issues of friendship, marriage, family, and self-acceptance.  Her popular novel Flirting with Forty was made into a Lifetime movie starring Heather Locklear.  Porter’s newest novel, The Good Woman  introduces a new trilogy about the Brennan sisters.  In The Good Woman, Meg Roberts is the eldest of the Brennan sisters and she is used to being in control and presenting an image of perfection to those around her.  But Meg’s life isn’t perfect and lately it’s been feeling out of control as well.  As she approaches her 43rdbirthday and reflects on her 17 years of marriage, Meg realizes she wants more out of life.  More love, more passion, more something.  She embarks on an affair that shatters her world and her family relationships.  Meg is forced to come to terms with the person she was, and who she has become, as well as learning that happiness isn’t something she has to chase, but rather a choice she must make for herself. Porter sheds light on the difficult and sometimes painful consequences of the choices women make.  Readers will find comfort in Porter’s revelation that real life is messy and that while every woman’s choice to find happiness and self-acceptance may take a different path, many experiences and feelings are universal

I love love love to read. If I could I would never put a book down. I read everything from Romance to History books, and rarely have I met a book I could get past the first chapter. Well, except for one super long book.

The Good Woman was a really easy read and I read half while taking a quick soak in the tub.

Reading about the Brennan sisters made me laugh, cry and yell, yes I yelled at the book :)
Each sister has their own unique personality and when together they mesh pretty well.

They hold strong when their mother learns that her cancer is back and lean on each other for support.

While I only have 1 sister I can only imagine that if I had 2 more this is exactly how we would be.

Reading The Good Woman will make you take a second look at your life and think about the choices you may be wanting to make. Its about being happy with YOURSELF!

I can't wait for the second book in this trilogy to come out in February!

You can purchase The Good Woman on Amazon and pre order The Good Daughter as well!
