Jane Porter’s The Good Woman

I recently was given the chance to read Jane Porter’s new book, The Good Woman.  Here’s a description from Amazon:

“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.”

I adored this book!!  I couldn’t put it down.  I read it in 2 days and that’s only because I had to get some sleep and go to work.  There were a lot of things about this book that hit close to home with me and some of the things that I have been through in the past few years.  Jane Porter did a fabulous job at making you feel the emotions her characters were feeling.  This is definitely one of those books that should be read with a box of tissues nearby.  I enjoyed The Good Woman so much that I am taking it to work and insisting that some of my co-workers read it.
The Good Woman is the first in a series of books on the Brennan family and I can’t wait to read the next one.
I was given a copy of The Good Woman to read as part of campaign with BookSparksPR.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.
