"The Good Mother is the story of a good mother who made some poor choices.
Anna Dunlap is a recently divorced woman with a young daughter, Molly. They live together in a small apartment in Cambridge, and they are reasonably happy together, and then Anna meets Leo. Leo is an artist, a free spirit, and Anna begins to lose herself in her relationship with Leo, losing herself so much that she often "forgets" Molly. This absentmindedness of Anna's costs her more than she could ever imagine, when her ex-husband, Brian, takes her to court for full custody of Molly.
The Good Mother is an excellent story and a must read for any mother, especially those who are separated or divorced.
... some of the sex was a bit graphic for me
... found The Good Mother very difficult to put down, and a fascinating glimpse into the psyche of Anna Dunlap." amazon review

Book contained too many sexual innuendos - not what I expected. Didn't care for the ending - it left me feeling apathy for the mother.

Sue Miller is an excellent writer. Her character studies are very precise.

This book was slow and really a disappointment. I kept reading it because it had parts that were promising, but it never delivered. I would not suggest it.
