The international phenomenon described as Under the Tuscan Sun set in Ireland, about a recent widow who moves to the Irish coast and begins a tumultuous but ultimately healing relationship with her neighbor, a brooding Irish photographer. Also out now: the bestselling sequel, Don't Worry, Life is Easy, also from Hachette Books.

Diane seems to have the perfect life. She is a wife, mother, and the owner of Happy People Read and Drink Coffee, a cozy literary caf in Paris. But when she suddenly loses her husband and daughter in a car accident, the world as she knows it disappears.

One year later, Diane moves to a small town on the Irish coast, determined to heal by rebuilding her life alone-until she meets Edward, a handsome and moody photographer, and falls into a surprising and tumultuous romance.

But will it last when Diane leaves Ireland for good? At once heartbreaking and uplifting, Diane's story is deeply felt, reminding us that love remembered is love enduring.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"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

"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


"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


"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


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


"The energy that Agn s 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
