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 realises 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 unravelled 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.

Review:

"One family, three women and a whole heap of problems collide spectacularly in this highly accomplished debut. But the secrets and lies which shatter this cosy slice of suburbia resonate far and wide" ( Daily Mirror)

"Three Californian women hold centre stage in this likeable tale ... The main characters are sympathetically drawn and their lives adroitly captured" ( Mail on Sunday)

"A withering Silicon Valley satire . . . Brown's hip narrative reads like a sharp, contemporary twist on The Corrections." ( Publishers Weekly)

"Brown's beauty of a book believably puts it out there that you can go home again, but only if you're willing to genuinely care for and about each other" ( New York Daily News)

"A brilliant and very readable portrait of the mother-daughter relationship" ( Candis)

Book Description:

When life breaks you, who can you count on to pick up the pieces? One day is all is takes for three women's lives to come undone...
