    The Good House tells the story of Hildy Good, who lives in a small town on Boston's North Shore. Hildy is a successful real-estate broker, good neighbor, mother, and grandmother. She's also a raging alcoholic. Hildy's family held an intervention for her about a year before this story takes place - "if they invite you over for dinner, and it’s not a major holiday," she advises "run for your life" - and now she feels lonely and unjustly persecuted. She has also fooled herself into thinking that moderation is the key.

    Rhonda Morrison says: "What a great book, Hildy is a great character!"
    "Perfect narrator"

    What did you love best about The Good House?

    I never write reviews but The Good House was simply terrific. Mary Beth Hurt was the perfect Hildy Good; her character was really well-developed and the alcoholism angle fascinating. I was absolutely transported to the insulated world of Wendover. Perfect listen!
