Publisher Comments:

From the USA Today bestselling author of the Brennan Sisters novels comes a heartwarming story about finding love and strength, even in the darkest momentsand#133;

and#160;

In the wake of a tragedy that tore her life down to the foundations, Dr. Alison McAdams has lost her way. So when sheand#8217;s summoned to Napa to care for her ailing father, sheand#8217;s not sure she has anything to offer himand#151;or anyone else.

and#160;

What Ali finds in Northern California wine country is a giftand#151;an opportunity to rest, and distance from her painful memories. Most unexpectedly, she finds people who arenand#8217;t afraid of her grief or desperate for her to hurry up and move on.

and#160;

As Ali becomes part of her fatherand#8217;s community, makes new friends of her own, and hears the stories of a generation who survived the Second World War, she begins to find hope again. In a quest to discover the truth about another womanand#8217;s lost love, she sets off on a journey across oceans and deep into history. And in making sense of that long-ago tragedy, Ali is able to put together the broken pieces of her heart and make new choices that are right for her.

Synopsis:

Is it possible to love someone too much?

Always considered the beauty of the family, the youngest Brennan sister, Sarah, remains deeply in love with her husband of ten years. Boone Walker, a professional baseball player, travels almost year-round while Sarah stays home and cares for their two children. Her love for her husband is bottomless—so much so that her sisters say it will end up hurting her.

Living apart most of the time makes life difficult, especially since Sarah often wonders whether Boone is sharing his bed with other women on the road, even though he swears hes been true to her since his infidelity three years ago. While she wants to be happy and move forward in her life, Sarah constantly fears that Boone will break his promise. Now with Boone facing yet another career change, tension rises between the two, adding more stress to an already turbulent marriage. Emotionally exhausted, Sarah cant cope with yet another storm. Now, she must either break free from the past and forgive Boone completely, or leave him behind and start anew . . .

Synopsis:

Is it possible to leave it all behind?

The firstborn of a large Irish-American family, Meg Brennan Roberts is a successful publicist, faithful wife, and doting mother who prides herself on always making the right decisions. But years of being “the good woman” have taken a toll and though her winery career thrives, Meg feels burned out and empty, and more disconnected than ever from her increasingly distant husband. Lonely and disheartened, she attends the London Wine Fair with her boss, ruggedly handsome vintner, Chad Hallahan. It’s here, alone together in an exotic city, far from “real” life, that Chad confesses his long-standing desire for Meg.

Overwhelmed, flattered, and desperately confused, Meg returns home, only to suddenly question every choice she’s ever made, especially that of her marriage. For Meg, something’s got to give, and for once in her life she flees her responsibilities—but with consequences as reckless and irreversible as they are liberating. Now she must decide whether being the person everyone needs is worth losing the woman she was meant to be.

Meg Brennan Roberts is the oldest daughter in a Catholic raised family. She’s always the “good sister” doing everything right. Married for seventeen years and the mother of 3, Meg feels something is missing. She’s increasingly unhappy and dissatisfied with the path her life has taken. This midlife crisis or what not has her questioning her life, her career and her marriage and what she really wants out of life.
The first word that comes to mind if someone were to ask me about The Good Woman would be WOW! This book will take you on a roller coaster of emotions from happy to sad to wanting to throw the book across the room in denial and finally into happiness and hope for the future. I was a little apprehensive about reading The Good Woman because of some of the subject matter, but once I started, I was hooked. I could not put it down. Jane Porter did a great job with the story and working with the intricacies of not only being the older, more responsible sister who holds herself to a higher standard than everyone else, but also of a woman who’s not quite sure how her life ended up where it did and what to do about the feelings of loneliness and increasing unhappiness. I really enjoyed getting to know the Brennan family and I look forward to reading the rest of the books in The Brennan Sisters trilogy!
