For fans of Eleanor Brown's The Weird Sisters and Liane Moriarty's The Husband's Secret comes a smart, wry, and poignant novel about reconciliation between fathers and daughters, between spouses; the deep ties between sisters; and the kind of forgiveness that can change a person's life in unexpected and extraordinary ways.
The Rockwell women are nothing if not . . . Well, it's complicated. When the sisters—Esme, Liv, and Ru—were young, their eccentric mother, Augusta, silenced all talk of their absent father with the wild story that he was an international spy, always away on top-secret missions. But the consequences of such an unconventional upbringing are neither small nor subtle: Esme is navigating a failing marriage while trying to keep her precocious fifteen-year-old daughter from live-tweeting every detail. Liv finds herself in between relationships and rehabs, and Ru has run away from enough people and problems to earn her frequent flier miles. So when a hurricane hits the family home on the Jersey Shore, the Rockwells reunite to assess the damage—only to discover that the storm has unearthed a long-buried box. In a candid moment, Augusta reveals a startling secret that will blow the sisters' concept of family to smithereens—and send them on an adventure to reconnect with a lost past . . . and one another.
Advance praise for All of Us and Everything
"An entertaining yet astute look at family, self, story, and connections."—Kirkus Reviews
"Bridget Asher's fascinating, eccentric characters are such good company that I finished All of Us and Everything in one sitting. This is a compelling, funny, moving story about an irresistible family."—Leah Stewart, author of The New Neighbor
"While many writers strive to create a single memorable character, Bridget Asher, seemingly with the flick of her wrist, brings forth four amazing, unique, altogether brilliant characters in All of Us and Everything. The Rockwell siblings, Esme, Liv, and Ru, as well as their fascinating mother, Augusta, won me over completely, and their story twists and turns in such fascinating, hilarious, and heartfelt ways that it left me in awe of Asher's abilities."—Kevin Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of The Family Fang
"Charming, original, and impeccably written, All of Us and Everything is a spirited romp through the lives of an unusual family of women. When I wasn't laughing out loud or eagerly turning pages to see what happened next, I was marveling at Bridget Asher's ability to tell a highly entertaining, fully engaging, and deeply insightful story."—Cathi Hanauer, New York Times bestselling editor of The Bitch in the House and author of Gone
