Jane's books are all good, emotion, family driven stories of decisions to be made on a daily basis - with reality based issues. The fact that these novel draw from three sister's stories/lives and how they support each other makes it special. The youngest sister's story is now available!
Jane Porter is known for her emotional, heartfelt stories about women struggling with issues of friendship, marriage, family, and self-acceptance, and her Brennan Sisters Trilogy is no exception.
With The Good Woman (Berkley, September 2012), she introduced a family grappling with the real, complicated and sometimes painful issues that arise in life. In The Good Daughter (Berkley, February 2013), she explored the life of school teacher Kit Brennan, the second oldest of the five Brennan kids. Now, in THE GOOD WIFE (Berkley, September 2013), she delves into the complicated marriage of Sarah, the youngest Brennan sister, long considered the beauty of the family.
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 43 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.
THE GOOD DAUGHTER
Kit Brennan has played it safe her entire life, but as a single thirty-eight year old English teacher at a Catholic high school in Oakland, her life hasn’t turned out as she planned. Her ten-year relationship ended six months ago and Kit has now come to the realization that she may be better off pursuing her dreams without a man involved. But when the mysterious, dangerous Jude Knight enters the picture, Kit begins to question who she’s become and who she should be. Does she dare to follow her desires? With one of her teenage students in crisis and her family’s burdens weighing heavily on her mind and heart, is Kit ready to risk everything by taking a chance at the unknown?
THE GOOD WIFE
Sarah’s love for her husband, professional baseball player Boone Walker, is bottomless—so much so that her sisters say it will end up hurting her. While Sarah stays home and cares for their two children, Boone travels almost year-round. 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. Now, with Boone facing yet another career change, tension rises between the two, and the emotionally exhausted Sarah must choose whether to break free from the past and forgive Boone completely, or leave him behind and start anew.
