Apparently she's only 5 years older than the other actor but she's just one of those people who are more mature than their years, not in looks but in mannerisms and just generally how she acts. Unfortunately the actor playing her husband seems a lot younger than his years so it's not a good mix and put me off what could have been an okay film.

I might not have picked it up if I had known. At first it wasnt that noticeable. There were signs in it of Kathleen finding such a comfort in God,and the grandmothers final act of calling her local priest to make peace with God. As the book went on it became even more clearer. While this was an ok book I found that there were several things that irked me about. Not like it was a truly horrible book but like it was written for someone who was I found it a bit strange that Kathleen had no idea what become of her brothers after she left.
Yes I know she wanted to leave it all behind her but they were still family and the siblings not trying to find out what happened to their sister was also a bit strange. I found that the bit about Eleanors first marriage view spoiler [husband pretending to have died in WWII and secretly annulling the marriage hide spoiler ] was very melodramatic.
Another thing was how the women were made out to be like these victims of circumstance and of men. Like how the author wanted to emphasize that men were these flawed creatures whose shortcomings adultery,thieving,lying about being dead women had to ENDURE in a graceful manner. It ends on a bittersweet tone when its remarked how much like her grandmother Joelle Kathleens daughter looks. Apr 01, Susan rated it really liked it Shelves: historical-fiction. When I pick up a Lynn Austin book I have a hard time wanting to put it down.
In fact, I have stopped reading all my other books right now because my Austin books that are on hold keep coming in at the library! I have come to really appreciate her writing skills and her ability to help the reader not only learn more about history and contemporary times, but also teach principles of forgiveness and compassion in a very enjoyable way.
In this book, Austin explores the past of different characters When I pick up a Lynn Austin book I have a hard time wanting to put it down. In this book, Austin explores the past of different characters and you learn why they become the person they are and why they behave the way they do. It really helped me to stop and think about the fact that we cannot judge others, especially when we have not walked a mile in their shoes. At first, it is easy to be judgmental of several of the characters, but after you learn of their past and the things that had happened to them, it is hard not to change your perspective of them.
More than anything, Austin's books have opened my mind to the many different challenges so many people face throughout life and it has made me think of my ancestors and some of the decisions they made.
"All She Ever Wanted"
I have had a somewhat negative perspective of one of my ancestors in particular, but over the past few years, I have felt that I need to change that perspective, forgive them in my heart, and realize that I never had enough information as to why they behaved the way they did. I feel Austin's books have been purposeful for me because reading them has helped me recognize things that would have been difficult to do on my own. I don't think you can go wrong reading this book or any other that Austin has written, as I have had a good experience with every book I have read of hers so far.
Jun 26, Annette Moore rated it it was amazing. This is a book that will likely stick with me long after tonight.
It was both joyful and heart-wrenching in places. It's so sad how each character, in some way, had run away from her life--be it emotionally or physically, thereby leaving her family. Also very sad to me was the running theme of thinking you really want something, but when you finally get it, it isn't what you thought you wanted at all.
I thought it was also very sad how the characters failed to ask for God's will in their lives. However, there was also redemption--and I loved that, too!
I love how austin wrapped up the story! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys generational family sagas involving mothers and daughters. I love stuff like this, and I love the lessons and wisdom Austin included. I love books that make you think and feel--and this one definitely did both! Aug 11, Elizabeth S rated it liked it. Not Austen's best work. Austen has great potential but she makes the mistake of preaching way too much. While it is certainly not as bad as Though Waters Roar it is far too much. The stories of the women are interesting but they ought to have been told in a more linear format.
As it is I find it disjointed. Fiona's story is the most tragic and the most horrible. I felt sorry for her but as the story continued I found her lack of understanding that her actions affect others highly annoying.
All She Ever Wanted
She w Not Austen's best work. She was a very selfish women. Eleanor and Kathleen were more sympathetic but sadly both lived unhappy lives. The men were almost all terrible and so the women's devoted love seemed to make them ridiculous.
The ending is unrealistic and tacked on. It sounds as if I hate the book but really it was pretty good. Jan 30, Erin rated it it was ok. I was a little scared to read this book when the author bio listed going to church as an interest of the author I had never heard of her or Christian fiction. I read the first chapter and was quite turned off by the references to the bible, church and Christianity. There was a conflict between mother and daughter and the family would try to deal with this by looking to the bible. I put it down but then I was on a plane and had nothing better to read so I picked it up again.
