“This powerful novel proves as subtle as it is dramatic, as durable—in its emotional afterlife—as it is instantly readable.”—New York Times

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.
