This is the Story of a Happy Marriage by Ann Patchett

Publisher’s Summary

“Tell the story of your marriage,” my young friend Niki says to me. “Write down how it is you have a happy marriage” But the story of my marriage, which is the great joy and astonishment of my life, is too much like a fairy tale, the German kind, unsweetened by Disney.

 This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage is a very real love story, and one that is much more about the journey than the destination. Chock full of beauty, truth, and humor, and, in trademark Ann Patchett style, possessing an uncanny ability to feel both surprising and familiar at the same time, this essay is a perfect, if unconventional, holiday listen. 

Review –

This was a short story that was offered free by Audible.  It was pleasant to listen to but I probably will not read or listen to anything by this author again because I’m more into the horror,crime fiction and young adult  genres with a occasional love story throw in for good measure.
