From the New York Times bestselling author of How to Walk Away and Things You Save in a Fire comes a hugely entertaining, poignant, and charming novel about what happens after happily ever after. “Everyone Is Beautiful is for every woman who has ever struggled to find, hold on to, and nurture ... authenticity in the midst of motherhood’s wild, messy, wonderful thing.”—Brené Brown Lanie Coates' life has taken a turn for the worse. She's packed everything she owns into a U-Haul and driven from their cozy Texas home to a multiflight walkup in Boston with her husband, Peter, and their three young sons. Her husband has left behind family and friends in order to pursue his dream of becoming a professional musician. But, somewhere in the midst of her personal hurricane, Lanie realizes that she, too, had dreams... if she could only remember what they were. Lanie seems to put herself last these days, and when another mom mistakenly thinks she's pregnant, it's the final straw. Lanie has yearned to be her old self again for fifteen years, three babies, and more pounds than she cares to count since the day she said "I do." It's time for her to rise up, dig her moxie out of the diaper pail, and rediscover the woman she was before motherhood took over her life. Lanie initiates change by joining a gym, enrolling in photography classes, and making new friends. She, on the other hand, creates waves that end up threatening her entire life. Lanie must find a way to find herself without losing everything else in the process, balancing motherhood and me-time, marriage and independence, and supporting loved ones while also realizing her own dreams.

However, as Lanie begins to find herself through a newfound passion for photography, the story gains traction, and the tension grows as her photography teacher turns out to be a smitten kitten. Like real-life marriage with children, this book offers enough sparkling moments to compensate for the tedium.
