Goodreads: 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 . .
Ope’s Opinion: The Good Daughter is the second book in the Brennan sisters series. You don’t have to read the first one to understand the second, but there is background information in the first that makes the second easier to read. This book centers around Kit, but you still see the rest of the family.
The story keeps moving throughout the whole book. It kept my attention right up until the last page and left me wanting more pages to read. There were some other story lines going on in this book. It was interesting to see how Kit reacted to these other characters and their situation ( don’t want to give anything away ).
It was so great to see this family again. I loved to see the development of these characters. It was great to hear Kit’s story and still see the rest of the family.
It was such a quick read because I already knew the family. It was very interesting and quiet a few surprises. Great read! I am looking forward to the next one in this series!!
Rating: Four Chairs – I like this book so much I know several friends to share it with.
