All I Ever Wanted

All I Ever Wanted

FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF A HUNDRED PIECES OF ME AND ONE SMALL ACT OF KINDNESS COMES A HEARTWARMING, BITTERSWEET AND UPLIFTING STORY OF MISSED CHANCES AND UNEXPECTED OPPORTUNITIES.

‘Lucy Dillon’s books make the world a better place’ Heat

‘Bittersweet, lovely and ultimately redemptitive; the kind of book that makes you want to live your own life better’ Jojo Moyes

‘So satisfying and clever and deeply moving’ Sophie Kinsella

Caitlin’s life is a mess. Her marriage to a man everyone else thinks is perfect has collapsed, along with her self-esteem, and breaking free seems the only option.

Nancy, her four-year-old daughter, used to talk all the time; in the car, at nursery, to her brother Joel. Then her parents split up. Her daddy moves out. And Nancy stops speaking.

Nancy’s Auntie Eva, recently widowed and feeling alone, apart from the companionship of two bewildered pugs, is facing a future without her husband or the dreams she gave up for him.

But when Eva agrees to host her niece and nephew once a fortnight, Caitlin and Eva are made to face the different truths about their marriages – and about what they both really want . . .

Reviews

Sometimes, you just need a good cry and no one tugs at the heartstrings quite like Lucy Dillon. She's back with this tale of two sisters; Caitlin, recently divorced with her self-esteem shattered and a four year old daughter, Nancy, who's stopped talking, and Eva recently widowed and her world splintered. Throw in a couple of adorable pugs in this tale of heartbreak, healing and hope, then stick a fork in me, because I am done.

Full of Warmth and hear, this is a brilliantly written book
Sun on Sunday
A rather lovely read, despite dealing with a few things you might not expect from a regular chick-lit novel. Definitely give it a read!

ALL I EVER WANTED is my first Lucy Dillon's book - but certainly not the last . . . a beautiful, gentle story
Heat
It is unbelievable but "All I Ever Wanted" is my first Lucy Dillon's book - but certainly not the last, as this novel has totally convinced me and it made me experience all kind of emotions. It was a beautiful, gentle story about a family that goes through a rough patch in their lives.
