The Happiness Jar

Losing her battle with cystic fibrosis, Rachel administers a dose of her notorious wanderlust. She asks her family for one last request: a journey to the exotic and the unknown.

Brian, her Vietnam veteran father is missing. Matt dreams of finding a hero’s path like his father, as Beth’s religious fervour propagates parental disappointment.

The Happiness Jar is a story about tightly held beliefs, and what can endure when we release the burdens we place on ourselves and each other.

Set against the red dust of the Australian Kimberley desert, and the smoky backdrop of the holy River Ganges in India, this is a novel that reminds us that we continue to live in the memories we leave behind.
