The Good Wife by Jane Porter (Brennan Sisters #3)
Publisher: Berkley Trade (September 2013)
Formats Available: Paperback, Kindle
Synopsis from Goodreads: 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 he’s 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 can’t 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 . . .
My thoughts: The Good Wife is the third installment of the Brennan Sisters series (I believe it is a trilogy, but you never know these days) The series starts with The Good Woman and continues with The Good Daughter which I thoroughly enjoyed. I had high hopes of reading The Good Wife, but time has not been on my side this month and unfortunately I was unable to get to it.
Jane Porter has a knack for writing characters who demonstrate grace and strength in the face of adversity. This is one of the things I love about her novels, and she’s written quite a few of them. You can see them on her website.
While I didn’t get a chance to read The Good Wife in time for this tour stop, I am still looking forward to reading it and seeing what direction she takes Sarah and the other Brennan sisters.
