From Jennifer Weiner, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Who Do You Love and In Her Shoes comes a smart, thoughtful, and timely exploration of two sisters’ lives from the 1950s to the present as they struggle to find their places—and be true to themselves—in a rapidly evolving world. Mrs. Everything is an ambitious, richly textured journey through history—and herstory—as these two sisters navigate a changing America over the course of their lives.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Jennifer Weiner’s sprawling, modern family saga tracks the lives and loves of sisters Jo and Bethie. Weiner follows her two protagonists from their 1950s Detroit childhood into adulthood; through their eyes we see the evolution of the role of women decade by decade. Proustian in its attention to detail, Mrs. Everything follows each sister as she just lives, conveying history through the smell of challah bread or the sensation of a first acid trip. Already well-known for her heartwarming stories about women’s relationships (In Her Shoes, Who Do You Love) Weiner has crafted an extraordinary, generations-spanning novel that rises to the top.

Loved every minute
Sister and mother/daughter relationships are complex. Jennifer captures the beauty and chaos very well. She also has a way of making even the most difficult characters lovable. While I think there were several loose ends that could have been explored a little more, overall I didn't want it to end.
Truly a masterpiece
Mrs. Everything is the story of all women - you’ll find some part of your own experience reflected here, whether you’re gay, straight, white, brown, young or old, and I can’t wait to book club the heck out of it!
