Praise for The Good Daughter

“An eerily beautiful novel…Alexandra Burt fills the Texas woods with her haunting prose and multiple layers of faithfulness, blood ties and betrayals. The suspense draws you in those woods and keeps you there until the final page.” —Kathy Hepinstall, author Blue Asylum
“In The Good Daughter, Alexandra Burt expertly weaves a rich tapestry of a story that is surprising at every turn and impossible to put down. I was incredibly impressed with her ability to take seemingly unrelated threads and connect each one to the core of the story. Excellent read!” —Rena Olsen, author of The Girl Before 

“A stunning read from a superb storyteller.” —Clare Mackintosh, international bestselling author of I See You

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, bestselling author of All is Not Forgotten

The Good Daughter pulled me in tight and didn’t let go. Eerie and wrenching, it’s a captivating story of love, obsession, and the power of secrets.” —Meg Gardiner, Edgar Award-winning author of Phantom Instinct

“Burt knows how to propel a strongly character-driven novel forward, using intrigue, mystery, plot twists, and rich—sometimes grisly—sensory imagery. Her insightful ability to make the turmoil within Memphis and Dahlia visible and believable makes for strong female characters who are nevertheless flawed and somewhat unreliable narrators. The look into their inner chaos is both fascinating and unsettling and speaks to the strength of the human will to survive even under the most adverse conditions. Burt’s tale captivates to the bitter end, by which time ‘everything that was done in the dark has come into the light.’”—Kirkus Reviews
