( [EPUB] Seven Secrets of Happiness ) BY Sharon Owens – chiangshistory.org
D at the chance I eagerly started the book and I really found myself enjoying the bookWhereas a lot of books focus on our heroine ending up alone via a cheating boyfriendhusband at the start of a novel The Seven Secrets of Happiness takes a ifferent tack and starts promisingly but takes a sad turn 20 or so pages in I admit that after reading the blurb on the back the last thing I expected was the Six Days in Leningrad death of Ruby s husband It was an incredible shock but the blurb after reading it backoes hint at someone The Darkness dying rather than Ruby s husband actually leaving her which was my initial thought Sharon Owensoes a really good job at portraying Ruby s grief as well as that of Tom the man Ruby meets the night her husband Flyboy dies Ion t have much experience of grief but I could really feel for Ruby and even so for Tom and I found Owens treated the subject very sensitivelyThe Seven Secrets of Happiness spans about three years in total from start to finish and there are uite a few time jumps although none of them seemed at all forced and all kind of helped keep
The Story Flowing Because In story flowing Because in honesty if the entire book had focused solely on Ruby s grief then I A Dark Sicilian Secret don t think it would have worked so the jumps in time helped us see how Ruby had moved on after thatisastrous night I adored the seven secrets of happiness aspect of the book which is essentially the main plot I would say and looked forward to revealing each of the seven secrets All of the stories pertaining the secrets were all inspiring I thought all seven secrets to happiness could well be the secrets to happinessAs far as characters go I found myself really loving Ruby She s a hugely sympathetic character and you Wolf Creek Homecoming (Wolf Creek d have to have uite a hard heart to not feel for Ruby at all as she goes through uite a lot oframa She never really felt sorry for herself though and the way she managed to Black Beech and Honeydew: An Autobiography deal with her grief was uite fantastic Jasmine Ruby s best friend was an absolute rock to Ruby throughout her mourning period and I found myself really warming to her early on The friendship between herself and Ruby was easily believable My favourite character though was Tom a fellow widower and the man Ruby meets the night her husbandies He seemed like such a nice character and I loved getting to know him before he and Ruby really made contact It s so good being able to get to know a character before heshe enters a relationship with our main character There were a few minor characters including Ruby s mother and father who at the beginning seem to be happy together until Ruby s mother Emily ups and leaves the country At the Italians Command during some sort of midlife crisis That added another thread to the entire story making for a fantastic storyWhile Iid love the book I id find myself getting irritated at certain aspects of the writing Irish writers have a habit of adding so #Onto The Ends Of #the ends of sentences as well as adding things like so I am onto the end of a sentence where they ve already said they re oing something Example I m going shopping so I am and it really Her Rancher Hero (Saddlers Prairie, doesn t work because they re essentially repeating the same thing twice From the little contact I ve had with Irish people I ve never heard any of them add so or so I am onto their sentences and I juston t understand why editors The Maid of Lorne don t just edit them out Another thing Irish authors seem intent onoing is usin.
