    Everything the Heart Wants is everything I look for in a novel. The characters are well-developed and real. The story line is full of conflict, with healthy doses of both happiness and heartbreak, and the ending promises the hopefulness of new beginnings. I will be recommending it to m...

    Waaaay back when I started in the library biz (mid 70s), there was a book by Shirley Radl titled MOTHER'S DAY IS OVER that caused quite a stir among patrons and staff (it was based on the Ann Landers survey that resulted in 70% saying they wouldn't have kids again). I read it and while...

    This book is really similar to Baby Proof by Emily Giffin. I liked it but at times it felt repetitive. ...

    This novel held my interest like none other in my recent past. You see, I am a mother of two grown women who I love, but I am not a woman who loves children. I may never have grandchildren because one of my daughters has chosen not to have children and one is happily single. Do I worry...

    I really enjoyed this book especially the fact that the ending was not a predictable chick lit type of ending.The characters and situations were very believable and likable. I did find the writing to be somewhat redundant in the descriptions of Halley and Adam's marriage and Halley's d...

    This review was originally posted to Jen in Bookland Everything the Heart Wants was a great read. I don't think I have ever read a book with a main character that was so me in this way. We are first introduced to our main character, Halley, when she is telling us a bit of her histor...

    After eleven years of marriage, Halley and Adam are very much in love and enjoy being together. They have a plan that doesn?t include children. They agreed on their first date. But after eleven years, Adam charges his mind and upsets everything. The book reads like a romcom. It?s f...

    ?It isn?t what never changes, but what has.? A well written story of love, letting go and moving forward with life- for you. I was certainly not expecting how this novel ended, but admire Halley in standing true to her convictions and letting go of the person she loved most. T...

    This book just didn't do it for me - it seemed a bit trite. It was well written, but seemed a little preachy. ...

    I haven't had a book move me in a while the way this book did. It's not a sad book - although in some aspects it was - but in all retrospect, it's a story about identity, being totally true to yourself, and just being downright brave. I'll try to point out a few things about the boo...

    I?ve had some of Savannah Page?s books in my TBR list for some months, but last week I finally had the opportunity to read her latest amazing novel, Everything the Heart Wants. I was so impressed by the naturalness of her descriptions and how the storyline captivates the reader. ...

    Tough choices. Page has captured an emotional and difficult issue in a sensitive and compassionate way. Don't judge Halley, who decided early on that she did not want children, until you've walked in her shoes. I appreciated how well rounded this novel is and how sympathetic both Halle...

    Everything the Heart Wants was such a good read. The characters were very well rounded, easy to like and relate to. The dilemma facing Halley and Adam, a very tough one. I can't imagine how I'd react faced with something similar. The author did a great job writing both points of view ~...

    This book really kept my interest. I liked it. I was a bit conflicted at the characters, but understand the reasoning. I'm seriously hoping that this author is continuing to write books, because I will definitely read them. Thank you to author, publisher and Netgalley for the cha...

    Beautifully written. Kept me thinking and engaged. My heart has all kinds of feels. Reading this book helps to understand that not all love is the same and one love doesn't invalidate another. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone, even if it's not their usual genre. It gi...

    A long read Yes, long. One I could put down anytime. The plot was interesting enough that I had to finish the book. I had to know what happened to the four main character groups. Why so long? It was all the LONG physiological analysis going on for pages and pages that made the story...

    The story goes? Halley was always sure, from the very beginning, that she never wanted to be a mother. In fact, she made this clear on the first date with Adam itself. But when her husband after 11 years of bliss, suddenly asks her to reconsider about having a baby, they are at cross...

    An interesting story I liked the characters and thought the book was well written; it is the first book I have read on this subject and I did like the strength of the main character Halley. There are interesting perhaps in this book; for me the only downside was the lengthy internal...

    I read for a honest review for NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing. Interesting storyline, Halley always had her life planned out,want we wanted in life and that meant no children, but what if after 11 years your spouse wants more out of the marriage then just go to work and come home ...
