The Happy Ever After by Betty Maura-Cooper
Lily Rose made the painful discovery that loving somebody was very different from being in love.
Lily Rose Ruggle has lived an extraordinary life. Full of love and heartache, family and feuds. Now in her eighties, she looks back over her life and how she came to be where she is: In a lonely flat with only her dog, Badger, for company.
Out of the blue, an invitation to her sister’s 80th Birthday party sets her mind to reminiscing, back to her early teen years, at a time of war, when her younger siblings were evacuated to the country whilst her older siblings were drafted into the War Effort. Could this be the olive branch she needs to reconnect with her six siblings?
The Happy Ever After is a heart wrenching yet soul enriching novel, which will keep you on the edge of your seat as you experience the emotional roller-coaster that is Lily Rose’s life.
