Somewhere Inside of Happy

book | Fiction | Apr 2016
UK & Comm → Transworld Publishers (Ed. Harriet Bourton)
'And just like that my boy was gone.'

Maisie Bean is standing on a podium on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the death of her son, trying to find the first breath that will help her start talking to a room full of strangers. A daunting task at the best of times, but she's also menopausal and one hot flush away from totally losing it.

But as Maisie begins her story, she soon relaxes and word by word disappears into her past, back to 1st January 1990, the day when one misunderstood action led to a chain of events that changed her life.

Somewhere Inside of Happy is a brave and funny story of motherhood and love that will have you laughing and crying from the first page to the last.
