THE GOOD DAUGHTER

Jane Porter

Kit Brennan has always been the most grounded of her sisters. A Catholic school English teacher for seventeen years and a constant giver, her decisions have been sound—just not very satisfying.

It’s there that she meets a man who’s dangerous; a man who challenges who she thought she was, or rather should be.

Praise

"The second book of the Brennan Sisters trilogy delivers a strong story and a compelling emotional punch that surpasses the first. The dialogue is filled with tension and compassion. Porter pulls the reader into the very heart of this close-knit family, examining intense feelings and life-altering decisions without backing away. The characters are larger than life, yet it is easy to relate to them and their various predicaments."RT Book Reviews

"Deftly switching viewpoints between Kit and Delilah, Porter tells a wrenching tale about complicated family dynamics, caring for a dying loved one, and spousal abuse, but her deeply perceptive writing and exhilaratingly authentic characters ultimately make this an optimistic story."Booklist
