Sylvie, a recently widowed mom of two, receives a late-night phone call from the head teacher of the prestigious school whose board she serves on and knows it’s something she doesn’t want to hear.

She has worked hard to maintain the perfect life she inherited: her reputation, the heritage of the school which was founded by her grandfather and the stately old family home.

But when her racially mixed adopted son, Scott, is rumoured to be involved in a scandal that led to the death of a boy at the school her world is thrown into turmoil.

To make matters worse she starts spying on the dead boy’s father.

This novel explores the difficulty of truly connecting to people, how snap judgments can come back to haunt you and how scratching beneath the surface can yield surprising revelations about people you thought you knew.

Everything We Ever Wanted offers emotional and compelling storytelling from the author of All the Things We Didn’t Say.
