Publisher's Summary

From the bestselling author of Whisper Me This comes a haunting and lyrical novel about the promises we make and the forgiveness we need when we break them.

One tragic twist of fate destroyed Braden Healey’s hands, his musical career, and his family. Now, unable to play, adrift in an alcoholic daze, and with only fragmented memories of his past, Braden wants desperately to escape the darkness of the last eleven years. 

When his ex-wife and son are killed in a car accident, Braden returns home, hoping to forge a relationship with his troubled seventeen-year-old daughter, Allie. But how can he hope to rescue her from the curse that seems to shadow his family? 

Ophelia “Phee” MacPhee, granddaughter of the eccentric old man who sold Braden his cello, believes the curse is real. She swore an oath to her dying grandfather that she would ensure Braden plays the cello as long as he lives. But he can’t play, and as the shadows deepen and Phee finds herself falling for Braden, she’ll do anything to save him. It will take a miracle of forgiveness and love to bring all three of them back to the healing power of music.

Critic Reviews

"Hopeful at its heart and sincere to its core, Everything You Are is a testament to the power of connection." --Booklist

"Everything You Are is a fresh, imaginative story about the power of dreams and our hunger to be who we really are. Kerry Anne King orchestrates a fluid, emotional, and wholly original tale of families, secrets, and the power of our gifts to free us. I loved every magical word." --Barbara O'Neal, author of The Art of Inheriting Secrets

"Real and raw, King's Everything You Are is a gorgeous tale of life told between those lines too often blurred. Love and sorrow, regret and hope are woven into every aspect of the story by music - not just any music, but the magical kind that leaves both creator and listener, for better or worse, irrevocably changed." --Terri-Lynne DeFino, author of The Bar Harbor Retirement Home for Famous Writers (And Their Muses)

Cello pronouns

Fairly good story (although the "curse" part seemed pretty far-fetched and some of the female protagonist's behaviors were too intrusive and unprincipled to keep me connected with her. Main criticism though is the VERY annoying anthropomorphzing of the cello! I mean, for Pete's sake, DON'T use the pronouns "she" and "her" to reference an exquisite musical instrument. Rather than creating more sentiment toward it, that actually made me distance from it! Way over the top!

Will Damron Was Everything!!

Every thing you are was the first book I read by Kerry Anne King and I really enjoy the story so much. it had the right amount of angst, love and intriguing moments that will keep you hooked since the very first pages of the story a story about love, hope, and perseverance a story that will captivate you and want to hold the characters close whenever their life was crumbling down.. Braden Healey a very talented and gifted musician that life and circumstances stole that beautiful gift away, making him sober up and take charge of his life and his daughter laugh again.. he wasn't expecting these life-changing circumstances but life and destiny has a funny way to bring things to us. no matter how much we resist sometimes is inevitable to face our own fears and demons Allie was very lost, she lost everything in her life in a matter of seconds, she felt like something was missing and nothing was the same, she wanted someone to love her and care for her even if that meant to act like a crazy teenager without any care of the world.. but that was just a facade to hide her own emotional pain and grief. “Phee” MacPhee was an angel she was the one making miracle happens, she had the key to a lot of answers as well as the key to Braden's heart.. she was afraid to let her self be vulnerable and show her love but life happens and circumstances make her move and help Braden and Allie to finally have what they need it the most love, a home and a family that will bring them back to life.. it was a good story with good characters, I felt every emotion, I got mad at Allie when she was being so insensitive with Braden but I also understood her pain and how she was translating all this into her life... in love with the narrations, i really love how Will made us fall in love with each character and brought so much to them and the story great narrations as always!!! This was my first book by Kerry but I'm ready to start another one of her books..

Not a bad book

The story was not the best,but the characters are well developed well I enjoyed them. I think what really made this audiobook book for me was the performance of the narrator he did a great job.

A Good story

I am partial to stringed instruments and love violin and cello music so this story captivated me. Very well written and the narrator was excellent.

2.5 Stars Boring and Unbelievable

A lot of people liked this book but for me I found it a jumbled mess. I rarely put away a book I've started to listen too without finishing it, and I seriously had trouble not breaking that habit with this book. The main story line is somewhat plain (very childishly plain) but the whole rest of the book was a squirrel chase! The author takes you on a trip through abusive parenting, psychology 101, unrequited love, infidelity, suicide, heart attack, possible murder, classical music, instrument making, curses, psychics, dreams, and many many more totally bizarre squirrel chases. Maybe they were attempted additions to the story? This is a very superficial writing that was not even entertaining or what I like to call time spending reading. I spent more time speed listening just to get through the book than in actual enjoyment of the listening. Most definitely not putting this author on my list. Put it back on the shelf and move to another author. Whew. Will Damron was amazing with the delivery of the story and the reason I managed to finish the book

Cursing

there are too many curse words in this book and the lord's name in vain I do not get with books like that and I will not recommend you to anybody.
