Publisher's Summary

Lanie Coates' life is spinning out of control.

She's piled everything she owns into a U-Haul and driven with her husband, Peter, and their three little boys from their cozy Texas home to a multiflight walkup in the Northeast. She's left behind family, friends, and a comfortable life, all so her husband can realize his dream of becoming a professional musician. But somewhere in the eye of her personal hurricane, it hits Lanie that she once had dreams too.

These days, Lanie always seems to rank herself dead last, and when another mom accidentally criticizes her appearance, it's the final straw. Fifteen years, three babies, and more pounds than she's willing to count since the day she said "I do", Lanie longs desperately to feel like her old self again. Lanie sets change in motion, joining a gym, signing up for photography classes, and finding a new best friend. But she also creates waves that come to threaten her whole life. In the end, Lanie must figure out once and for all how to find herself without losing everything else in the process.

    "a light book that makes you think"

    I enjoyed this light book that deals with the common problems in marriage: balancing selfishness versus giving, time alone and time with children, keeping desire alive, finding meaning in one's life as a woman and mother. It is well written and entertaining, and it was a great holiday audiobook.

    Story
    "What's the point"

    At first I enjoyed getting into the book and meeting the characters. But then??????? I read about nothing, nothing happened , no point to this story at all. Very boring, flat, no purpose. Hate that I spent money on it.

    Story
    "A MUST FOR ALL MOTHERS!!"
    What did you love best about Everyone Is Beautiful?

    As a mother to 5 I can totally identify with this book. When you become a mother you lose yourself and it is so hard to see your way out. I have never read a book that addresses this issue. It was a fiction book but has a lot of truth to it. I adores this book.


    What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Wonderful narration.

    Story
    "Finished at Long last"

    This book took me a long time to finish. Not because it was long or difficult to read but because it never caught my interest for long periods of time. It read like a soap opera plays-I could come back and remember right where I left off with all the characters and their nuisances the same. I'm glad I stuck with it and finished it... The end was worth the read.
