<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER </b>• <b>In the riveting new novel from the #1 bestselling author of <i>Something Borrowed </i>and<i> First Comes Love, </i>three very different people must choose between their families and their most deeply held values. . . .</b><br /><br /> <b>“An unpredictable page-turner that unfolds in the voices of three superbly distinct characters.”—<i>The Atlanta Journal-Constitution </i></b><br /><br /><b>“A gripping, thought-provoking journey.”—Jodi Picoult</b><br /><br /> Nina Browning is living the good life after marrying into Nashville’s elite. More recently, her husband made a fortune selling his tech business, and their adored son has been accepted to Princeton. <br /><br />Yet sometimes the middle-class small-town girl in Nina wonders if she’s strayed from the person she once was.<br /><br /> Tom Volpe is a single dad working multiple jobs while struggling to raise his headstrong daughter, Lyla. His road has been lonely, long, and hard, but he finally starts to relax after Lyla earns a scholarship to Windsor Academy, Nashville’s most prestigious private school.<br /><br /> Amid so much wealth and privilege, Lyla doesn’t always fit in—and her overprotective father doesn’t help—but in most ways, she’s a typical teenaged girl, happy and thriving.<br /><br /> Then, one photograph, snapped in a drunken moment at a party, changes everything. As the image spreads like wildfire, the Windsor community is instantly polarized, buzzing with controversy and assigning blame.<br /><br /> At the heart of the lies and scandal, Tom, Nina, and Lyla are forced together—all questioning their closest relationships, asking themselves who they really are, and searching for the courage to live a life of true meaning.<br /><br /><b>Praise for </b><i><b>All We Ever Wanted</b></i><br /><br />“Page-turning . . . Timely and thought-provoking, it’s Giffin’s best yet.”<b>—<i>People</i></b><br /><br />“Nina Browning has it all: the handsome husband, the Ivy-League-bound teenage son, and the big house in the Nashville suburbs. But with one unthinkable social media post from her beloved child, could it all fall apart?

<p>From Nora Roberts, the #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>Year One</i> (December 2017), comes <i>Shelter in Place—</i>a powerful tale of heart, heroism . . . and propulsive suspense. </p><p>It was a typical evening at a mall outside Portland, Maine. Three teenage friends waited for the movie to start. A boy flirted with the girl selling sunglasses. Mothers and children shopped together, and the manager at video game store tended to customers. Then the shooters arrived.</p><p>The chaos and carnage lasted only eight minutes before the killers were taken down. But for those who lived through it, the effects would last forever. In the years that followed, one would dedicate himself to a law enforcement career. Another would close herself off, trying to bury the memory of huddling in a ladies' room, helplessly clutching her cell phone--until she finally found a way to pour her emotions into her art.</p><p>But one person wasn't satisfied with the shockingly high death toll at the DownEast Mall. And as the survivors slowly heal, find shelter, and rebuild, they will discover that another conspirator is lying in wait--and this time, there might be nowhere safe to hide.</p>
