About the Book
Seven women living in an inpatient-care facility try to find a way to fit into a world that can’t respond to their pain. But these broken women are the ones who can teach one another how to live. Happy Place is a glimpse into lives filled with courage, compassion and startling surprise, lives which — in many ways — are not so different from our own.

“While there are no easy answers to these women’s troubled lives, they have, in part through sharing with the others, found individual paths on which they can move forward… We go on the journey with them and find something hopeful within ourselves, too.”” —NOW Magazine
