Everything Will Be All Right by Tessa Hadley
Everything Will Be All Right tells the story of four generations of women. Lil, a widow, lives with her sister, Vera, and her philandering husband after World War II. Her daughter, Joyce, escapes their humdrum lives for art school, but after an affair with a married man, becomes a dressmaker and settles into domesticity with him. Her rebellious daughter, Zoe, disdains marriage and has a baby, Pearl, out of wedlock. Pearl grows into a gadget-loving teenager devoid of any ambition. Tessa Hadley has written a novel that accurately captures the rhythms of their eras and the intricacies of their ordinary lives. Everything Will Be All Right has received largely positive reviews with The Guardian saying, "Her ear for dialogue, for the nuances and language of hypocrisy and self-consciousness and hope, is so fine-tuned, so wincingly accurate, that it's impossible not to be swept into her world."
