THE GOOD DAUGHTER
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.
Kit Brennan’s decision to follow her heart to apparent bad boy Jude Knight is a huge change for her. After 10 years in a dead-end relationship, the Catholic schoolteacher and daughter who always makes the safe choices shocks her family by becoming involved with a motorcycle-riding rebel. Kit quickly discovers that there is a whole lot more to Jude than she first assumes. (BERKLEY, Feb., 382 pp., $15.00)
