The Good House

Editorial reviews

The Good House

It’s a wonderful depiction of life inside the mind of a real, complicated and scared woman in the grips of a harrowing addiction, and it’s a page-turner from start to finish.

The result is a layered and complex portrait of a woman struggling with addiction, in a town where no secret stays secret for long.

Superstition, drama, and intrigue unspool at a perfect pace in Ann Leary's irresistible new novel, The Good House, a tale steeped in New England character and small-town social tumult.

Kirkus Reviews : The Good House (January 18, 2013)

Despite getting a little preachy toward the end, Leary has largely achieved a genuinely funny novel about alcoholism.
