An utterly engrossing tale of one family, three women, a facade of perfection and success and the secrets and lies which undermine it all.
In the heat of a west coast summer three very different women, each poised for success, find themselves failing spectacularly: Janice
, a devoted mother and housewife whos approaching fifty, finds she has been abandoned by her husband; her elder daughter Margaret
, a magazine editor, is driven back home by towering debts; and her teenage daughter Lizzie
is humiliated by the boys whose affections she has unquestioningly embraced.
At first they hide their crises bankruptcy, addiction, promiscuity from one another, but as the curtain-twitching world they inhabit begin to intrude, they find their secrets exposed.
In the midst of the manicured lawns and country club whispers, the Miller women cloister themselves in their suburban home for the summer and confront first their personal downfalls, then each other
From a stunning new literary voice, All We Ever Wanted Was Everything
is a captivating and poignant portrait of women trying to stay afloat and what happens when the world you know comes crashing down.
