Book Review - The Good Daughter by Jane Porter

Love was given to all, except herself . . . 

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. Her fortieth birthday is right around the corner, causing Kit to consider some wilder notions, like skipping right past the love and marriage to raising a child all by herself . . .

 A girls’ weekend away is just the reprieve Kit needs from school, Mr. Wrongs, and life-changing decisions. It’s there that she meets a man who’s dangerous; a man who challenges who she thought she was, or rather should be. Kit wants to indulge herself this once, but with one of her students in crisis and the weight of her family’s burdens weighing heavy on her heart, Kit isn’t sure if now is the time to let her own desires take flight . . .

"The Good Daughter" is the second book in author Jane Porter's trilogy following the lives of the Brennan sisters, and this time, it's middle sister Kit's turn in the hot seat!

Kit is looking at 40, feeling her biological clock ticking, and longs for a family - only she's just not particularly crazy about having a man in her life in order to have a baby.  She's been burned by too many jerks, and she longs for a peaceful, quiet chance at love.  But when Jude Knight roars into her life on his burnt orange motorcycle, life becomes anything but quiet for Kit.  Sometimes you just have to take a chance on love and make a leap of faith, but Kit is wavering on that cliff's edge!

Jane Porter takes her readers back into the lives of the lively Irish/American Brennan family in this fast-moving and intriguing story of love, loyalty, faith and family. Event though this is the second book in the series, first-time readers can quickly catch up on the background of the trilogy!  Porter's skillful storytelling style is evident in this tale, and shows just why she is one of women's fiction's favorite authors!

I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy a great contemporary romance, a family-centered story, and a faith-filled tale as well.

Jane Porter is the award-winning author of The Good Woman, She’s Gone Country, Easy on the Eyes, Flirting with Forty (basis for the Lifetime movie), and several other novels. There are more than 5 million copies of her books in print.
