Women's Fiction Contemporary

Is it possible to love someone too much?

Always considered the beauty of the family, the youngest Brennan sister, Sarah, remains deeply in love with her husband of ten years. Boone Walker, a professional baseball player, travels almost year–round while Sarah stays home and cares for their two children. Her love for her husband is bottomless—so much so that her sisters say it will end up hurting her.

Living apart most of the time makes life difficult, especially since Sarah often wonders whether Boone is sharing his bed with other women on the road, even though he swears he's been true to her since his infidelity three years ago. While she wants to be happy and move forward in her life, Sarah constantly fears that Boone will break his promise. Now with Boone facing yet another career change, tension rises between the two, adding more stress to an already turbulent marriage. Emotionally exhausted, Sarah can't cope with yet another storm. Now, she must either break free from the past and forgive Boone completely, or leave him behind and start anew . . .

Re: The Good Wife

When you love someone that much, they can really hurt you. Once burned.
(Kathleen Yohanna 3:19am September 3, 2013)

only if that love on the other side is not recipracated in full
(
Mal Kaplan 6:36am September 3, 2013)

I think we've all felt this way at one time or another. I'm looking forward to reading this book!
(
Michele Squire 7:13am September 3, 2013)

Sometimes the moving forward past a trying time is the most difficult thing in the world. I can't imagine being able to do that.
(
Pam Howell 7:31am September 3, 2013)

I think it is possible to love someone too much and that is how we sometimes get hurt
(
Shirley Younger 8:20am September 3, 2013)

This book sounds wonderful and I cannot wait to see what happens between Sarah and Boone. Love will see us through!
(
Melanie Backus 8:50am September 3, 2013)

Occasionally everyone in a relationship has a moment like this - but when it feels too one sided - look out! Can't wait to read this one.
(
Lola Karns 9:26am September 3, 2013)

Congrats on your new release! I hope it goes well. :-D
(
Karin Anderson 9:57am September 3, 2013)

Another book for the reading list.
(
Charlotte Wills 10:37am September 3, 2013)

It is better to be the one loved and not the one who loves too much.
(
Julio Herrera 10:43am September 3, 2013)

I think people believe they are so in love they will die if something happens, but truly I think love is what we make it. Love is different for different people and being in love is great, but having someone who will be there no matter what is much more important.
(
Deana Connelly 10:43am September 3, 2013)

I always enjoy books about successful women. I also always enjoy coffee a Starbucks. But, mostly I do enjoy Jane Porter's writing. So, I sure do wish I will win this contest!
(
Ann Martinisi 10:47am September 3, 2013)

I believe in many cases, the saying "love is blind" fits. You can love someone so deeply, and give them everything you've got, and they can turn around and hurt you when you least expect it. That hurt can run so deep, that you never get over it. You might think you do, but it always runs around in the back of your mind. I've been there, and know how devastated you can feel. It is going to take a lot of courage for me to read your book, because it's going to open a lot of old wounds for me. A lot of them are still close to the surface, and the weirdest things open them back up. Even though I suffer through in silence, the other part of me wants to see how you resolve the issue. Congratulations on what is sure to be a great read for a lot of women!!
(
Peggy Roberson 10:55am September 3, 2013)

The Good Wife sounds wonderful - I can't wait to read it! The cover is
beautiful! Congratulations on the book and thanks for the chance to win!
(p.s. You picked a great last name for the sisters! Lol)
(
Linda Brennan 11:14am September 3, 2013)

Sounds like a winner. There aren't nearly enough books about
marriages, which are so idiosyncratic and mysterious.
(
Mary Ann Dimand 11:19am September 3, 2013)

congrats on the release the book i have been wanting to read
since i first saw reviews cant wait
(
Denise Smith 12:49pm September 3, 2013)

Congrats on your book's release! Thanks for sharing with us!
(
Colleen Conklin 1:02pm September 3, 2013)

I really enjoyed reading the excerpt. I think that, each in
our own way, we can relate to Sarah.

And congratulations for the 4 1/2 Stars and Top Pick!

This sounds like a very interesting idea and a new take on an old theme. Can't wait to read.
Have a wonderful day.

Denise Boyd 1:28pm September 3, 2013)

A marriage is a commitment to pledge one to the other and unto God and it should never be broken. A married person (as well as a single person) should really think what the consequence of his or her actions could result in. If he or she breaks the marriage vows, I think down deep inside the person really doesn't care enough about the one to which they are married or God. All of this does affect the children, I know. Your book sounds very interesting, and to know the outcome of the story I would like and hope to win and reads it. Thank you for this chance to win. Wishing You All The Best.

Esther Somorai 1:41pm September 3, 2013)

It sounds great. I like that the couple are married and are working through their issues together.
(
Marcy Shuler 2:25pm September 3, 2013)

I so want to read this series. Def on TBR list!!!!
(
Vicki Hancock 3:26pm September 3, 2013)

Sounds like a good read, I've added it to my read list.
(
Rita Wray 3:37pm September 3, 2013)

It depends on who you love "too much", and what "too much" means. Sometimes you can give too much of yourself and feel vulnerable. If you put your trust in someone you can count on, then I don't think you can love "too much". It's just difficult to know who you can count on sometimes.
(
Sandy Fielder 3:40pm September 3, 2013)

Being the oldest of five sister, I enjoyed reading sister books. It's aways good to start with the first one. Enjoyed your blog.
(
Sheila True 4:04pm September 3, 2013)

It's never possible to love too much!!!!
(
Jackie R 4:13pm September 3, 2013)

Looking forward to reading Sarah's story.
(
Mary Chin 4:21pm September 3, 2013)

I think love can turn obsessive/possessive and that's not a good thing. Would love to read another one of your books!
(
Susan Coster 5:22pm September 3, 2013)

I think it's easy to be hurt when you love someone so much, but loving someone too much isn't possible. At the end of the day love is truly the best thing in the world. Thanks for the blog.
(
Jamie Fortney 5:42pm September 3, 2013)

This sounds like a great story, and I'm really looking forward to reading it, especially, since it's received such high ratings. If you have trust issues, then I don't think you can possibly love "too much".
(
Linda Luinstra 5:58pm September 3, 2013)

made me wanna read the whole book now
(
Debbi Shaw 6:17pm September 3, 2013)

This book sounds great! I love when there is a series of books with the same people, so we really get to see the characters develop!
(
Joanne Schultz 6:39pm September 3, 2013)

Sounds like a good read. Looking forward to reading it.
(
Carol Woodruff 6:40pm September 3, 2013)

(
Martha Lawson 10:02pm September 3, 2013)

Oh, I can't wait to read Sarah and Boone's story in THE GOOD WIFE! I am ordering a copy right now!! Fingers crossed to win THE GOOD WOMAN!!
(
Britney Adams 10:10pm September 3, 2013)

This sounds like a book I'd love to read!
(
Barbara Wright 10:10pm September 3, 2013)

Can you love someone too much? Hmm.....not in the sense of its being given and received in its purest, truest form. Love is something really special and a lot of people these days call things love, that just aren't. So no, going by what I believe love is and given its strength and naturalness.....no. Not possible.
(
Samantha King 10:25pm September 3, 2013)

I don't think you can ever love too much you just need to realize not everyone can give the same way you can and accept what they can offer.
(
Darci Paice-Bailey 10:46pm September 3, 2013)

Yes, it is possible to love someone so much even that person doesn't love you right back. That's probably why there are so many love songs.
(
Kai Wong 11:00pm September 3, 2013)

I can imagine your heart breaking as you wrote this & I expect
I will cry some reading it. That being said, I look forward to
reading it!
(
Sharlene Wegner 11:45pm September 3, 2013)

I think it can be possible to love someone too much. I'm looking forward to reading your book.
(
Amy Kincade 12:30pm September 4, 2013)

Jane, I love your books! You are one great lady and I am a big fan! I would love
to win your new book! Thank you for being here today! You are the bonb!
(
