Synopsis

What if all the things you'd been told would make you happy ... didn't?







Jill Stark was living the dream. She had a coveted job, she was dating a sports star, and her first book had just become a bestseller. After years of chasing the dream, she'd finally found it. And then it all fell apart.







Getting her happy-ever-after plunged Jill into the darkest period of her life, forcing her to ask if we've been sold a lie. Could it be that the relentless pursuit of happiness is making us miserable?







From the ashes of Jill's epic breakdown comes this raw, funny, and uplifting exploration of our age of anxiety. Happy Never After is a soul-searching journey from despair to clarity and a forensic examination of our troubled times. Road-testing neuroscience's latest psychological frontiers in compassion, acceptance, gratitude, play, hope, and solitude, Jill turns the happiness fairytale on its head and asks what would happen if we flipped the script and found contentment in places we least expected?
