I hate overused exclamation points but I had to use one in my headline. This novel is a must read. Ms. Leary is a wonderful writer. There is not one "extra" word in this book and I mean that in a good way. She gets to the point without rambling on but at the same time paints a vivid picture of every scene. There are laugh out loud moments and pathetically human ones. Hildy is such a complex character and Ms. Leary brings her to life on every page. I predict that when this year is over The Good House will be on the "best fiction of 2013" lists.

Funny but sad

There are moments in which you laugh out loud, but ultimately it is a sad yet unlifting tale.

    Um....Starrykit? I think you should know....

    No offense to anyone-this is just my opinion-but Freedomkits Heart had some of the worst grammar I have ever seen. I was looking through the stories and that one was almost unreadable due to the lack of grammar. I dont really think its fair to give it second place. Sincerely, anonymous

    I know the grammar was bad, but I'm judging the story, not the grammar. That's why we have a writers circle. To give advice on that. At writers circle all res. And btw, res three is for concerns.
