Porter's final entry in the "Brennan Sisters" trilogy (The Good Daughter; The Good Woman) follows the youngest, Sarah, as she copes with her sense of identity as the wife of a famous baseball player. Sarah is madly in love with her husband of ten years, Boone, but can't stop her mind from racing and thinking seedy thoughts while he is on the road, which is quite often. It doesn't help that Boone did, in fact, have an affair over three years ago—breaking apart the trust and safety Sarah always had. Sarah thought she could move on but finds herself replaying the past so much that she can't focus on the present or the future of her marriage. With the loss of her warmhearted and reliable mother, Sarah is also facing many previously unquestioned emotions, expectations, and realities. VERDICT Each entry in this trilogy is more fully developed than the last, with the introduction of more characters and an evolving story line incorporating the three Brennan sisters. An investment worth making for fans of smart women's fiction.—Anne M. Miskewitch, Chicago P.L.
