A man escaping from a hotel fire sees a woman standing beneath a tree. He approaches her and sets in motion a series of events that will change his life forever. Years later, traveling from New England to Florida by train, he reflects back on his obsession with this unknown and ultimately unknowable woman—his courtship of her, his marriage to her, and the unforgivable act that ripped their family apart. Spanning three decades from 1899 to 1933, All He Ever Wanted gives us a tale of marriage, betrayal, and the search for redemption. It has the unmatched attention to details of character, place, and emotion that have made Anita Shreve one of America’s best-loved and bestselling novelists.

    " I couldn't finish so my rating isn't fair. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 6/27/2011

    " Different from her other works, the protagonist/narrator was not very likable, and thus made it difficult to engage. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 6/16/2011

    " I loved it!
    It makes me realize how many times I have someone's past and their current actions "all figured out", yet really know nothing of the full story... "

    " A very, very good book to read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna | 6/8/2011

    " I didn't enjoy this book nearly as much as her others that I've read. About half way through it got more interesting but I was really disappointed in the ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dianne | 6/1/2011

    " Interesting enough, but a bit slow. I don't think I would read this book again. The whole novel was actually rather depressing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mel | 5/31/2011

    " Did not enjoy this book at all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michele | 5/8/2011

    " I didn't care for the self-centered characters in this one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joanna | 5/7/2011

    " To be fair, I didnt read all of this. I am finding Anita Shreve to be a bit hit and miss. The first ones I read I loved - this one didn't grab me, and life is too short to read bad books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beverly | 4/27/2011

    " Yes, the protagonist is pompous and yes it is on purpose and yes the author has portrayed obsession well. But the book just isn't worth the time that one has to spend with such unpleasant, dishonest characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 4/15/2011

    " Had a much different tone from many of her other books...really enjoyed this one...felt a lot for the main characters...pity, empathy. The best books make you feel clear emotions. Anita Shreve is great at conveying many in this book related to love. "
