Review: The Good Wife by Jane Porter

The Good Wife by Jane Porter

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 . . .

Kritters Thoughts:  Sarah is the youngest of the Brennan family and she has lived far away from them for a long time.  Living in Tampa, FL due to her husband's professional baseball career, she spends many months as a single parent as he travels playing ball.  This book begins just as the last one left off, the family is all in California for the funeral of the matriarch and are trying to comfort one another.  Sarah stays in California for a bit to help Meg and thankfully is there when Meg's world falls apart.

I was most excited to read a book that concentrated on Sarah and her story.  She had played a role as a minor character in the other two, but I couldn't want to hear more from her.  I felt as though the beginning didn't center on her as much as I had wanted, but mid way and through the end I really felt like Sarah took the center part of the story.      

The third in the trilogy of the Brennan Sisters books and although I loved reading this one, I wish there was just one more.  I am sad that Brenna isn't getting her own story as she is a Brennan or even Cass as a sister in law (maybe a companion novel)!  I also don't feel like I have heard the complete story of this family and just want one more to type up any loose ends.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
