The Good Daughters by Joyce Maynard


March 20, 2012

7:00 pm

Two families, the Planks and the Dickersons, are mysteriously entwined in this novel that centers on decades of life at a New Hampshire farm. Youngest daughters Ruth Plank and Dana Dickerson, born on the same in the same hospital, take turns narrating the struggles they face as children. The lives of the "birthday sisters" parallel and oddly intersect, as each struggles to find her place in a world in which she has never truly felt she belonged. sharing little except a birth date--and a love for Dana's wild and beautiful older brother, Ray--two virtual strangers will travel alternate paths winding through first love, first sex, marriage, parenthood, divorce, and trace loss...until both are forced to reevaluate themselves and each other when past secrets and forgotten memories unexpectedly come to light.
