The Good Mother
Author(s): Sue Miller

New York Times Bestseller

"A tour de force. Sue Miller goes straight to the dark heart of the matter of modern sexual morality."   — Russell Banks

Sue Miller’s critically acclaimed bestselling novel about a woman torn between motherhood and sexuality.

Recently divorced, Anna Dunlap has two passionate attachments: her daughter, four-year-old Molly, and her lover, Leo, the man who makes her feel beautiful—and sexual—for the first time. Swept away by happiness and passion, Anna feels she has everything she's ever wanted.

Then come the shocking charges that will threaten her new love, her new "family". . . and that force her to prove she is a good mother. 

An extraordinary, perceptive, and significant novel, The Good Mother will continue to resonate as strongly with readers today as when it was first published over thirty years ago.



Review(s):
“This powerful novel proves as subtle as it is dramatic, as durable—in its emotional afterlife—as it is instantly readable.”
“A tour de force. Sue Miller goes straight to the dark heart of the matter of modern sexual morality.”
“One of those rare novels you live more than you read.”
“A strong, touching, deeply believable exploration of a woman’s emotional life.”
“A remarkable accomplishment.”
“Astonishing…courageous and unique.”
