I enjoyed this beautifully written novel that chronicles the lives of Ruth and Dana "birth sisters". Two women that look nothing alike, that share no interests but yet are linked together for a reason unbeknownst to them. Joyce Maynard does a wonderful job of bringing each character to life and making the reader interested in hearing their story. Luanne Rice, author of 'The Deep Blue Sea for Beginners' writes "the gentle rhythms of rural life,... characters who exist so completely... Joyce Maynard draws me into the world of The Good Daughters, weaves a story of choices and events so intimate I felt I was part of it." I agree with her statement 100%.
