The Good Woman by Jane Porter

The Good Woman by Jane Porter had me from the very beginning. From the start, you will want to take this book along with you everywhere you go! The fact that it is a part of a series makes it even more appealing to adult readers. I remember being engrossed with the Hunger Games trilogy, and loved that I could continue to read more about the characters, and see where the stories would take me. The fact that I've found a Chick Lit series is beyond amazing. I'm a happy reader. Jane is an absolutely lovely person, and that makes me want to shout her praises from the mountaintops.All of her sweetness aside, the book is fantastic, so click anywhere it says "The Good Woman" for ordering information...but wait, there's more! Hint *giveaway*
This story is about Meg, the quintessential older sibling. Much like myself, she strives for perfection, and doesn't deal well with any bumps in the road. She is born into a family of girls, and they are all as different as the day is long. Meg has always played it safe. Always. You can hear the voices of her sisters mocking her perfection, "Meg, she's always so perfect. Wholesome Meg, she never does ANYTHING wrong." She's never been the risk-taker. If she took risks, her younger siblings would have followed her lead. Meg would have given them permission to act out. Growing up as the oldest in my own family, it's tough when you want to do something, but think better of it because you know it's "not the right thing to do." It is pressure we put on ourselves. We THINK that's the way our parents or siblings want us to behave. It's not about what we want, it's about what everyone thinks of us. We are our own harshest critic. Sigh...

What happens to the person who always plays it safe? Do they always stay on the straightened arrow, or does temptation beckon them from their will to play it safe? The Good Woman explores the relationships between husband and wife, family, and what happens when you choose to no longer play it safe. Risk-taking is a double-edged sword. To find out what happens, you must read The Good Woman!
