    Mrs. Everything traces the lives of two sisters and their families, from 1950s Detroit through the present. After their father's sudden death, a succession of circumstances illustrates the limited choices available to women, particularly those not looking to conform. Jo opts for a conventional life of marriage and motherhood, in spite of her dreams of being a writer and having a preference for women. Bethie reacts to multiple instances of sexual abuse by taking a wild and drifting path through the sixties before finding stability. Their stories are augmented by the lives their mother and Jo's daughters feel are within their reach. Graynor, as Bethie, and Malone, as Jo, successfully navigate their characters' ups, downs, and myriad phases of life. From interpreting whiny teenagers to weary parents to wounded young adults, both narrators interpret the novel's shifting moods effectively. It's a crowded tapestry of women's voices, but Jo and Bethie's sound authentic and alive. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
