Description

Poignant, heart-warming and gorgeously romantic, this is a love-story with pure, unadulterated happiness at its heart. ´A Year of Finding Happiness´ shows you that the little things in life can make you smile, even when you think you might never laugh again...

Happiness doesn't factor on the deliciously rugged but utterly heartbroken Greg's radar much these days. Only his beloved Labrador Angus seems to understand his search for a way to make sense of tragedy, until he meets new neighbour Mallory Westerman...

Instantly they know that the other understands how they feel, and over time, as romance blossoms, they dare to wonder if they might, one day, be truly happy again...

There are two sides to every story, and ´A Year of Finding Happiness´ is Greg's journey back from the darkest depths to happiness...

´A Year of Finding Happiness´ was previously published as ´Bridge of Hope´.

Grief is such an individual experience. There is no set way to handle grief or loss, but this book handled that subject in a raw and unapologetic way. I could understand and appreciate the author's deep thoughts and the frustrations the characters experienced. The grace the characters give each other is beautifully hard. An amazing way to maybe see what grief could be like for someone in your life, or even maybe a way to navigate your own.

Some things are only easily understood in reverse. And this story has a great ending to such a hard time in life. And it's truly not far off from what I have personally experienced.

The expression of happiness amongst the sadness. The worry and shame that are sometimes associated with cohesive happiness and sadness, can be very consuming. I was very appreciative of Greg's insight and thought process on this.

I LOVED all the music throughout the story. It was homey and warm.

It's not a warm fuzzy listen/read, but a very real experience.

The audiobook is (chef's kiss)!!!!! The narrator was so engaging and DID NOT feel like he was reading a book. I felt like we were sitting across from each other at a table just talking about life, and it was very filled with emotion, rawness, and love. It has been the best audiobook experience I have had in a long time! LOVED IT!!!!!

Thank you NetGalley and Saga Egmont for the advanced listening copy. It was amazing!

This is such a beautiful story and I absolutely loved it! The narrator has a gorgeous accent and I could listen to it all day long.
It's a love story about love and loss and mistakes and all of the messiness of life.
But it's a great story of when we meet our soulmate and the struggles that we all go through. I thought the book was well written and I would definitely purchase it and look for another one from the author again.

I wasn't sure about this story when I first started listening as it was beautifully written, but so sad. However, I'm so glad I persevered as I really got into the story and Greg's journey out of grief and it was totally worth it. Also the narrator was an excellent choice for Greg's story and gave a brilliant performance. I hadn't realised this was a companion to a previous book from Mallory's perspective so I will definitely be looking out for that one too.
