Publisher's Summary

From the number-one book and Sunday Times best seller, comes the tale of a young woman in search of her past, and the mother who will do anything to keep it hidden....

What if you were the worst crime your mother ever committed?

Dahlia Waller's childhood memories consist of stuffy cars, seedy motels, and a rootless existence traveling the country with her eccentric mother. Now grown, she desperately wants to distance herself from that life. Yet one thing is stopping her from moving forward: she has questions.

In order to understand her past, Dahlia must go back. Back to her mother in the stifling town of Aurora, Texas. Back into the past of a woman on the brink of madness. But after she discovers three grave-like mounds on a neighbouring farm, she'll learn that in her mother's world of secrets, not all questions are meant to be answered....

The Good Daughter is a compelling take on a genre that shows no sign of slowing down. The perfect story for fans of Gillian Flynn and Paula Hawkins.

Critic Reviews

"A stunning read from a superb storyteller." (Clare Mackintosh)
" The Good Daughter by Alexandra Burt is stunning. Every landscape, from rural Texas to the dark past of the characters, is intricately and beautifully crafted, pulling you in from the very first page to the very last. Rarely do we get to enjoy psychological suspense with such extraordinary descriptive narration. It's a wonderful read!" (Wendy Walker)

Perfect for a slow walk in the woods.

Very predictable but enjoyable with no surprises. A gentle but violent story that I thoroughly enjoyed reading.
