Reviews

"A heartbreaking story of love and loss that will twist readers up in knots. . . Essential for any foreign literature or women's fiction collection."
--Library Journal---

"Like Katherine Pancol, Agnes Martin-Lugand has...the gift of making us love a charming yet flawed heroine."
--Elle France---

"Martin-Lugand's sparse but emotionally forceful style, aided by Smith's translation from the original French, catches the sweeter moments between two people embittered by loss." --Kirkus Reviews---

"The energy that Agnes Martin-Lugand is able to convey with this storm is enormous. This is one roller-coaster of a book, but I loved every moment of it. . . Anyone who has ever experienced a feeling of any kind, ever, will enjoy this novel."
--San Francisco Book Review---

"This is a powerful story of love and loss and how life moves forward often of its own accord. Both tearful and uplifting this is an exquisite story of re-growth and renewal after tragedy."
-Blogcritics.org---

"This is a sensitive and poignant novel...A book that is read (almost) in one go, it leaves an impression on the heart. A great life lesson."
--Femmes Magazine, Luxembourg
---
"Profoundly moving and expertly told, Happy People confronts life's most nightmarish tragedy with an unblinking examination. Diane's journey to find meaning again is at once charming and heartbreaking, and I found myself pulling for her to seek out her next experience of love. The wisdom and magic in these pages will linger long after the book is closed."
--#1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs---
