How can you prove you’re not an alcoholic? You can’t. It’s like trying to prove you’re not a witch.
Hildy Good is a townie. A lifelong resident of an historic community on Boston’s North Shore, and a descendent of one of the witches hung in nearby Salem, Hildy Good is falsely believed by some to have inherited psychic gifts. A successful real-estate broker, her days are full but her nights are lonely ever since her daughters, convinced that their mother was drinking too much, staged an intervention and sent her off to rehab. Now she’s in recovery – more or less. When a charming newcomer, and the occasional bottle of wine, lead Hildy astray, she scrambles to cover her tracks and protect her reputation. But not before a cluster of secrets become dangerously intertwined, and this darkly comic novel takes a chilling turn.
The Good House is a spirited New England tale that lays bare the secrets of one little town. The audiobook is narrated by Broadway and film actress Mary Beth Hurt, who brings Hildy’s lovable, quirky, questionable personality to life in this delightful and entertaining program.
