Summary:

The latest novel from Pulitzer Prize-winner Anna Quindlen

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,...

    I was initially quite dissapointed and nearly stopped listening after the first hour. It seemed such a depressing and pathetic story and I didn't want to go down that hole. However I persisted and I am glad I did. There were many surprises and turns in the story, and I ultimately found it quite fascinating. The narration was quite good and the individual characters were distinct.

    I absolutely loved this book. From beginning to end, I could picture each and every character. I enjoyed the narrator, I enjoyed the writing, and I felt the story was the poignant and touching. There were parts where I laughed and parts where I sobbed. A wonderful book!

    I had such high hopes for this book. It was good, but not great, and I felt it took too long to get to the turning point. But hang in there, there is one.
