Lovereading view...

A nicely written tale of tragedy, love and friendship that held the Underwood families together. The three brave women were the sisters-in-law, Jodie, Delia and Lariane, and the book brings out the loyalty and love they have for each other. This is not some gritty rags-to-riches saga for they are a prosperous family. It is more a tale of tragedy, emotional hardship and relationships. A real ‘feel good’ read that shows love will conquer all. Highly recommended.

If you like Elizabeth Waite you might also like to read books by Carol Rivers, Annie Murray and Katie Price.


Three Brave Women by Elizabeth Waite

Linked through marriage to three brothers, the Underwood women prove time and again that they are a force to be reckoned with. Jodie has travelled a hard road to reach her own prosperity, despite her husband's constant unreliability. Yet she can't bring herself to fully sever ties with John. But now with a potential new love waiting nearby, Jodie must make a decision she has been avoiding for too long. Widowed at a young age, Lariane believes her marriage to Rick was perfect. He also left behind twin daughters, but is Lariane sacrificing their future happiness by looking for perfection? Will another man ever be good enough to fill Rick's shoes? Dee has everything she ever wanted: a husband she adores and a beautiful little girl. But she knows that her family's happiness is founded on half-truths. How long before she must come clean with those she holds most dear?
