bettyville-cover-244What happens when a highly successful news and magazine editor living a cultured life in New York City, returns to his hometown of Paris, MO to take care of his ailing and widowed mother? The answer is in the New York Times bestselling book, Bettyville, and it might surprise you.

George Hodgman took a path that many a grown-up child has followed. In a CBS News interview for the show, Sunday Morning, George states, "I've had this terrible fear all my life that I couldn't do this. I was an only child. I was gonna be alone with this. And it involved all kinds of things that made me terribly uncomfortable -- taking over my mother's taxes. I can barely do my own taxes! I thought the 'Medicare donut hole' was a breakfast special for seniors."

George first thought of the trip as a visit, but days turned into weeks, weeks into months, and the months became years. Along the way, he rediscovers his love for his mom, a new sense of beauty, and the appeal of a simpler life.george-hodgman-betty-620
