This second event leaves Sarah remaining on with her family on the West coast, instead of rejoining her husband who is travelling around playing baseball. They have true love for each other, except that Sarah finds it very hard to let go and forgive Boone for being unfaithful three years ago. It is a constant struggle for her to forgive and trust again. I began to be annoyed with her, but of course as the reader I was given Boone's side of it as well - so it was easy for me! Sarah was a young, very confident, competitive young woman when she and Boone first met, yet now she seems to be just the home holder, caring for the children and the home while Boone is away often. I felt perhaps her final resolution came a little quickly towards the end - but then again it was satisfying and just the first step, and a very important one; I believe lasting one.
Boone was a very likeable man, - not perfect but very loving and strong. He is near the end of his career, and almost at the end of his tether with coping with Sarah's constant niggling and lack of trust. I like how he handled it, strong and loving. He didn't always get it right - at times he didn't really 'hear' what Sarah was saying, for example her worry about their son Brennan and his hyperactivity. However he got it right where it counted.
Out of the blue another character, Lauren appeared, she had a back story but at first I didn't see why she was in the book - however there was meaning eventually and an important one, so I was reconciled!
We were given updates on Meg and Kit, the first was a surprise and the second was delightful. Brianna still has a story to be told and so does Cass - the sisters sister-in-law. I was pleased to hear that this just might happen and another book will be written in this series.
This book explored difficult emotions, loss and grief, worry and distrust, fear, love and the difficulty of forgiveness and trusting again. It made me think of how difficult it is for couples who are separated often because of one partner away often as a professional sportsperson. Usually the male! Also how important it is for the female, not to lose sight of herself and her dreams in a marriage. A great read. I have loved all three books in this 'trilogy' and have felt strongly about the characters. I have liked how they have explored infidelity and the impact on the partner and family.
The Good Wife deals with Trust, Betrayal, Forgiveness, Loyalty and rediscovering who you are. It is Sarah's story, the youngest of the Brennan siblings. Sarah and her husband Boone are dealing with his infidelity and how Sarah deals with it as well as all of the other stuff that is going on their lives, kids, death, work, and Porter does an excellent job of keeping the characters real and accountable to others and themselves, but also not dwelling in self destruction or pity and showing that even though bad stuff happens you can move forward if you choose to.
We are also introduced to the Summer family, and I immediately felt a connection to them as well. Porter does an outstanding job of weaving the stories together and I was never confused on who was speaking or what was happening. Lauren must choose to move forward after a devastating loss of her only child and wanted to cheer her on every step of the way.
Porter has made the Brennan family feel like they are old family friends and they have found a place in my heart. Porter did a nice job of wrapping up some of the questions I had and yet left plenty of room to continue with the Brennan's if she chose to. Rarely do I reread a book and I have read this whole series twice now and I have no doubt that I would read it again. It is that Good!!!!!!!
