Two women, one pragmatic and analytical, the other prone to wildness and lofty wishes, share the same birthday in a small New Hampshire town. Joyce Maynard lets both women speak as narrators in THE GOOD DAUGHTERS, a novel that weaves a counterpoint that spans the lengths of their lives. As Dana Dickerson and Ruth Plank experience childhood, love, movement away from home and aging, Maynard wraps their stories around Dana's brother Ray, until secrets and tragedy force the women to confront their differences and the ties that bind them together.
