A sad story but told with gentle humour and hopefulness. Henry Powell feels responsible for a family tragedy that happens when he is seven years old and spends the rest of his life trying to make amends for that, but has he let opportunities pass him by in a bid to stop his family from unravelling? Well crafted characters and beautifully written.

Synopsis

Everything Must Go by Elizabeth Flock

Can one terrible moment change your life forever?

To those on the outside, the Powells are a happy family, but then a devastating accident destroys their fragile façade. When seven-year-old Henry is blamed for the tragedy, he tries desperately to make his parents happy again.

As Henry grows up, he is full of potential – a talented sportsman with an academic mind and a thirst for adventure – but soon he questions if the guilt his parents have burdened him with has left him unable to escape his anguished family, or their painful past…

With a delicate touch and masterful attention to detail, New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Flock invites us to meet a man both ordinary and extraordinary, and to experience a life that has yet to be lived.

About the Author

Elizabeth Flock

The South has always played an integral role in Elizabeth Flock's life. Though raised in Connecticut, Flock spent her childhood visiting grandparents and other relatives in her father's native Texas, soaking in the rich Southern tradition of storytelling and lore. By the time she turned eighteen, the draw of the South was too difficult to resist and she enrolled at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. Soon after graduation, Flock began her career in print at Vanity Fair magazine. Then it was on to San Francisco, where she reported for Time and People magazines. While at Time, she wrote several cover stories, including one about the fiery 1993 siege at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas. After five years of print reporting, Flock was drawn to television. Soon she was anchoring and reporting at a 24-hour cable network and writing for the NBC-affiliate news station. But New York beckoned, and following a freelance assignment she was hired by CBS.

Elizabeth Flock's first novel, BUT INSIDE I'M SCREAMING, a fictionalized account of a journalist's fight for sanity, was published by MIRA Books in 2003. The author lives in Chicago with her husband and two stepdaughters.
