Goodreads: 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.
Ope’s Opinion: This is a very realistic story – too realistic at times – not an easy read. To see how women were treated, feelings had to be hidden, and secrets were kept, was hard to read about.
These two sisters are each put in difficult situations that neither felt they could be honest about. The book explores how that shaped their lives. The changes in society as they were growing up also influenced them and their decisions.
This story had a lot of deep meaning and difficult subject matter. It makes you think and hopefully appreciate where women are now.
I appreciate your thoughts on this one and have read similar reviews (and ratings).
