The Good Daughters

The Good Daughters - Joyce Maynard I liked this book though I did know where it was leading from very early on.

The story is told in the alternating chapters and voices of Ruth and Dana. Each giving through their own words what was happening in their lives and how they understood it.

For me, I found myself identifying with Ruth the most. The relationship she had with her beloved father was very much the same as the one I had with mine. I relived out walks, our talks and how it didnt matter where he went as long as I could go with him.

While I dont understand the reasons of why the families choose to do things the way they did, it was interesting to try to understand. Short chapters made it very easy to read just one more.

Recommended for anyone who likes a family story that will touch you and make you laugh at the same time.
