Roxi Reviews

Roxi Wilkinson has graciously agreed to share some of her recent reads with us. The following review is part of an ongoing series of guest posts written by Roxi:

The Good House by Ann Leary is a novelwhich gives us a glimpse into the mind of a middle-aged, out spoken realtor who is hiding her alcoholism from her family, her town, and herself. I couldn’t help but like Hildy Good despite her very human flaws. Hildy lives in a small New England tourist town where several generations before her resided.  In fact, one of her relatives was hung at the Salem witch trials. Hildy is good at several things. A successful mother, grandmother, friend and real estate broker. Hildy has a sixth sense about houses and people which adds spice to the lively life she leads. This story weaves mental illness, alcoholism, friendship and family dynamics into a book I didn’t want to put down. It is funny, poignant and terrifying. What more do you need?!
