9780099517696: All We Ever Wanted Was Everything

Janice Miller knows this: she loves her husband, her two spirited daughters and the beautiful home in which she has raised her family. But what she doesn't know is how to stay afloat when a devastating discovery tears that familiar world apart. It is only once the damage has been done that she finally realizes how distant her daughters have become - and that schoolgirl Lizzie and 28-year-old Margaret now have dark secrets of their own. After years of following separate lives, they are reluctantly drawn back together under the same roof. It's the outside world that has unraveled their dreams, but what they all fear most now is each other. Yet it's there, in the family home, that they are forced to confront their crises - and where, slowly, each of them begins to heal.

From the Inside Flap:

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 who’s 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.

From the Back Cover:
