Read by Ari Graynor & Beth Malone.
Two sisters struggle to find their place, be true to themselves and adapt to rapid changes happening throughout the latter half of 20th-century America.
"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"-- Provided by publisher.

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.
