The Good Daughter by Alexandra Burt

Paperback, 400 pages

From the author of Remember Mia comes the tale of a young woman in search of her past, and the mother who will do anything to keep it hidden... 

What if you were the worst crime your mother ever committed?
Dahlia Waller s childhood memories consist of stuffy cars, seedy motels, and a rootless existence traveling the country with her eccentric mother. Now grown, she desperately wants to distance herself from that life. Yet one thing is stopping her from moving forward: she has questions.

In order to understand her past, Dahlia must go back. Back to her mother in the stifling town of Aurora, Texas. Back into the past of a woman on the brink of madness. But after she discovers three grave-like mounds on a neighboring farm, she ll learn that in her mother s world of secrets, not all questions are meant to be answered...

My Thoughts…

I’m not sure what I think of The Good Daughter.    I liked it, I read it, I finished it but I am disturbed by the story.   Maybe that was the idea of the author.     The twisted story has definitely kept me thinking about it, wondering if this could really happen, and hoping that it doesn’t.   

While I read the story I never felt fully connected to the characters.     I couldn’t relate or feel for them.   I was curious, wondering, and hopefully for their story.  I wanted to feel more, to hurt for them, to cry for them, and to be happy for them but it just wasn’t there.   

I believe this is a book that other’s could and will enjoy for me it just didn’t do it.     I recommend picking up your own copy and forming your own opinions.
