All We Have Lost

(2015)
A novel by

 
From the bestselling author of Pause to Rewind and The Accidental Life of Greg Millar comes this 'stunning tale of modern marriage.'

Kim Waters seems to have it all: her own PR agency, a loving husband and two adorable children. Then Kim announces that she's fed up plugging Flush toilet cleaner and writing sparkling press releases for mediocre products; she wants to write 'the great novel' and spend more time with her young family. She folds her business and settles down to a life of cosy domesticity.

If only it were that easy. The 'great novel' is, in fact, a great struggle. Life as a domestic goddess has (many) hidden challenges. And her relationship with her husband is rapidly losing its equilibrium.

As the perfect life Kim has built for herself starts to crumble comes the revelation that will make her doubt everything she had taken for granted...

Aimee Alexander is the pen name of bestselling Irish author, Denise Deegan. All We Have Lost was first published by Gill and Macmillan as Turning Turtle. A story of family, love and betrayal, it has received the following reviews:

'A hugely enjoyable book that delves with an assured, smart tone into big themes... entertaining and funny.' - THE IRISH TIMES

'A quick-paced, intelligent personal adventure written in witty, fluid prose.' - THE SUNDAY INDEPENDENT

'Deegan writes with a wry and witty ear for dialogue and captures well the manners of a middle-class marriage.' - THE IRISH TIMES

'Deegan's dialogue is always sharp and witty but she is particularly good at putting wisdom into the mouths of babes.' - THE SUNDAY INDEPENDENT

'With sparkling dialogue and fast pace, Denise Deegan takes old hat and turns it into Philip Treacy.' - THE IRISH INDEPENDENT

'Deegan has created an utterly contemporary heroine. Her battles are the battles fought by a generation of women who are encouraged by endless media hype to try to squeeze themselves into a number of roles (Career Woman, Earth Mother, Creative Goddess) - and a size 10.' - THE SUNDAY INDEPENDENT

'A new angle on an old story, written with charm and understated skill. Don't miss it.' -THE EVENING HERALD

'Anyone who has ever felt a gnawing discontentment invade their work day will rejoice at the spirit of Denise Deegan's novel.' - THE SUNDAY INDEPENDENT

'The book is an engaging page-turner, which has you caring whether Kim and Ian work out their problems. As popular fiction, it also catches a contemporary mood. Life balance is in vogue as an issue, as working parents struggle with careers, commuting and family.' - THE IRISH TIMES

'A stunning tale of modern marriage, written with wit, passion and flair.' - BESTSELLING AUTHOR CATHERINE DUNNE

'Denise Deegan's novel is funny and entertaining. It captures life today perfectly. I saw a bit of myself in the keenly observed character of Kim Waters.' - AUTHOR JOAN O'NEILL
