All We Ever Wanted: A Novel

by Giffin, Emily (Author)

ISBN: 9780399178948

In the riveting novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed and First Comes Love, three very different people must choose between their families and their most deeply held values....

Nina Browning is living the good life after marrying into Nashville's elite. Her husband has recently made a fortune selling his tech business, and their adored son has just been accepted to Princeton. Yet sometimes the middle-class small-town girl in Nina wonders if she's strayed from the person she once was.

Tom Volpe is a single dad working multiple jobs while struggling to raise his headstrong daughter, Lyla. But he finally starts to relax after Lyla earns a scholarship to Windsor Academy, Nashville's most prestigious private school.

Lyla doesn't always fit in at her new school-and her overprotective father doesn't help-but in most ways, she's a typical teenaged girl.

Then, one photograph changes everything. As the image spreads like wildfire, the Windsor community is instantly polarized. At the heart of the scandal, Tom, Nina, and Lyla are forced together-all questioning their closest relationships, asking themselves who they really are, and searching for the courage to live a life of true meaning.
