GIVEAWAY: The Good Daughters

 
They were born on the same day, in the same hospital, into families that could hardly have been less alike. Ruth is an artist and a romantic, with a rich and passionate imaginative life. Dana is a scientist and realist whose faith is firmly planted in what she can see or hear or touch. Yet these two very different women share the same struggle to make sense of their place in a world in which neither of them has ever truly felt she belonged. Told in the alternating voices of Ruth and Dana, "The Good Daughters" follows these birthday sisters as they make their way through the decades, from the 1950s to the present. Master storyteller Joyce Maynard chronicles the unlikely ways the two women's lives intersect - from childhood and adolescence to first loves, first sex, marriage, and parenthood; from the deaths of parents to divorce, the loss of home, and the loss of a beloved partner - until an unavoidable moment when a long-held secret from the past alters everything... [via GoodReads]

I have been looking forward to reading this one since I loved Ms. Maynard's, Labor Day.


GIVEAWAY: I have 2 copy  up for grabs - thanks to the folks at Harper.

I'd love a copy! Sounds just like the kind of book I'd spend a rainy afternoon reading, curled up with a cup of cocoa.
If I win, I'd be happy to leave my email, but unless I do, I'd rather not share it.
