One of my co-workers heartily recommended Mrs. Everything to me, and I am glad that she did!
Growing up in Detroit in the 1950’s, sisters Jo and Bethie Kaufman have very little in common. Much to their mother’s chagrin Jo is not interested in clothes and boys like younger sister Bethie. Realizing the limitations of a long-term relationship with a woman, Jo ultimately marries and has a family. Bethie takes a long time to settle down after drugs, drinking and experiencing life at a commune but eventually marries and becomes a successful business woman. Over the decades Jo and Bethie fall in and out of touch but prove their devotion to each other when it counts most.
This is a multi-generational tale of a family in and out of crisis. There is much to learn about the importance of family in good and bad times.
