In Heather Harpham’s memoir “Happiness,” she takes readers on a captivating journey of love, partnership, parenthood, and the unimaginable choices she is forced to make while navigating life with her daughter, Gracie, who has a rare blood disease.
Life leads them down an unexpected path, with bumps and curves in the road, that ultimately makes them all stronger.
The idea for this memoir was sparked from Gracie’s CaringBridge website, where Heather shared updates with her family and friends.
“Happiness” radiates out in multiple directions – new, romantic love; gratitude for a beautiful, inscrutable world; deep and abiding friendship; the passion a parent has for a child; and the many different and unlikely ways a family can be built.
Ultimately, it’s a story about love and happiness in their many crooked forms.
