The bestselling author of the New York Times bestselling novel Labor Day returns with an "exquisite" (Publishers Weekly) novel about friendship, family secrets, and the strange twists of fate that shape our lives.
They were born on the same day, in the same small New Hampshire hospital, into families that could hardly have been less alike. Told in the alternating voices of Ruth and Dana, The Good Daughters follows these "birthday sisters" as they make their way from the 1950s to the present. Moving from rural New Hampshire to a remote island in British Columbia to the ’70s Boston art-school scene, The Good Daughters is a "rich and realistic" (Library Journal) story about the ties of home and family, the devastating force of love, the healing power of forgiveness, and the desire to know who we are.
