The firstborn of a large Irish-American family, Meg Brennan Roberts is a successful publicist, faithful wife, and doting mother who prides herself on always making the right decisions. But years of being “the good woman” have taken a toll and though her winery career thrives, Meg feels burned out and empty, and more disconnected than ever from her increasingly distant husband. Lonely and disheartened, she attends the London Wine Fair with her boss, ruggedly handsome vintner, Chad Hallahan. It’s here, alone together in an exotic city, far from “real” life, that Chad confesses his long-standing desire for Meg.
Overwhelmed, flattered, and desperately confused, Meg returns home, only to suddenly question every choice she’s ever made, especially that of her marriage. For Meg, something’s got to give, and for once in her life she flees her responsibilities—but with consequences as reckless and irreversible as they are liberating. Now she must decide whether being the person everyone needs is worth losing the woman she was meant to be.
First Thoughts After.......
I can't wait to read Kit's story!
How Distracted Did I Get?
Meg is feeling unsatisfied in life and tries to make herself happy. This is a very realistic story and a very well written one. There are lots of emotions and ups and downs. I was more invested in the lives of the minor characters more than the main character Meg. I loved Kit. I can't wait to find out what happens in her life. Also, I'd love to find out why Bree is so bitter. I was able to get some dusting and cooking done these past couple of days and the kids enjoyed the non frozen meals.
I give The Good Woman.........
