Book Spotlight Giveaway! Every Last One by Anna Quindlen

I have sooooo many books! The Book Spotlight Giveaway feature that I post every Saturday is a way for me to clear my shelves and to share some of the many books I have. This feature is a way for my to cull my collection and to give someone else the opportunity to enjoy these treasures.


This book is one that our book club read several years ago. We had a very engaging discussion that night. You can read my thoughts here. (Posted on February 2, 2012). I received my friend's copy and I'm going to share it with one of you. Anna's books are always so good! 

Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!


Every Last One

Every Last One by Anna Quindlen
Hardcover, 299 pages
Published April 13th 2010 by Random House

In this breathtaking and beautiful novel, the #1 New York Times bestselling author Anna Quindlen creates an unforgettable portrait of a mother, a father, a family, and the explosive, violent consequences of what seem like inconsequential actions.

Mary Beth Latham has built her life around her family, around caring for her three teenage children and preserving the rituals of their daily life. When one of her sons becomes depressed, Mary Beth focuses on him, only to be blindsided by a shocking act of violence. What happens afterwards is a testament to the power of a woman's love and determination, and to the invisible lines of hope and healing that connect one human being with another.

Ultimately, as rendered in Anna Quindlen's mesmerizing prose, Every Last One is a novel about facing every last one of the things we fear most, about finding ways to navigate a road we never intended to travel, and about living a life we never dreamed we'd have to live, but find ourselves brave enough to try.

  1. I've only read one book by this author -- it was many years ago. It was about a girl who left college to take care of her mother, who had cancer. It was terribly sad!


Thanks SO much for leaving me a comment! Every single one means a whole lot to me!
