“A story of choices and events so intimate I felt I was part of it. The novel is wrenching, the emotions radiant, and it will leave readers transformed”
—Luanne Rice, author of The Deep Blue Sea for Beginners
“Joyce Maynard has outdone herself in this beautifully written story you’ll find hard to put down and impossible to forget.”
— Elizabeth Berg, author of The Last Time I Saw You
Bestselling author of the critically acclaimed Labor Day, Joyce Maynard now brings us The Good Daughters, a spellbinding novel about friendship, family secrets, and the strange, unexpected twists of fate that shape our lives. The story of two women born the same day in the same hospital, but raised in vastly different emotional environments, The Good Daughters is another high note in Maynard’s already distinguished writing career.

The good Daughters
I loved this book and couldn't put it down. I love the rich descriptions of growing up on a working farm. I loved the simple choices of the simpler times. I loved that all the issues that modern families face were addressed by women who often had no way to deal than to just accept . I love the inner strength of the women in the book. I love the discovery of drugs, sex, and rock n roll. Nothing was left out. The journey from what we were to what we are wrapped in a story of how a family farm that had always been debt free could turn into burden that threatens to bankrupt a family. I loved that family is often not what you expect it to be,but if you open your eyes you may find the reasons behind choices of family is totally different than they appear on the surface. The good daughters were good daughters.
While not a deep story, it was well written and kept me interested and engaged in the characters. I highly recommend it.
I loved this story, I read the entire book in one day.
I usually read mysteries or thrillers but I read the sample for this book and couldn't put it down. This book has mystery, life, death and romance all. It was one of the best books I have read in a while. Definitely 5 stars.
