He ultimately charms Christine into getting married and they now have a baby on the way. Then during the most brutal winter in Wyoming since 1900, Richard’s abusive mother, Claire Handler, invades their love nest when she unexpectedly moves back home after being released from Twin Oaks asylum after a nervous breakdown.

"A shocking and intriguing story I could not put down!"--Editorial Review

“I recently read Jody R. LaGreca’s book The Good Daughter, a captivity tale that had me flipping the pages in breathless anticipation until the very end.”-- Michael McCarty, five time Bram Stoker Finalist


“I expected the plot was about a daughter’s relationship with her biological father but it became much more complex and intertwined. There are subplots and other stories that crisscross and evolve, making this story addictive to read. Lies became truths and vice versa building up to an unexpected conclusion.”
