The Good Wife (Brennan Sisters #3) by Jane Porter Review & Giveaway

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 .

This is the third in the Brennan Sisters trilogy and I was excited to read about Sarah, the youngest Brennan sister.  Her husband cheated on her a few years ago, and though she said she has forgiven him, she hasn't forgotten.

His job keeps him on the road a lot and his time away gives Sarah time to herself, and time to question and think.  She says she has forgiven him but she wonders if he is cheating again since he is away so much.  He swears he isn't, that he is being faithful to her since they almost lost one another a few years ago.  She isn't sure she trusts him, or if she really forgave him.  Can they move forward and build a new foundation, with Sarah forgiving him and Boone regaining her trust? Or will Sarah decide to start fresh on her own?

The Good Wife is a page-turner with many prominent elements - love, forgiveness, trust and knowing one's true self.  Porter does another splendid job of creating memorable characters with a modern and relative setting, which makes it easy to connect with the characters.  If you enjoy reading good, solid fiction, pick up The Good Wife! You won't want to miss the first two in the series though, The Good Woman and The Good Daughter!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
