This is a collection of life-affirming stories about couples who met and fell in love. So you know the endings already. Or do you? There is nothing predictable here. The storytelling is inspired, at once poetic and real. The style is deceptively simple and the themes are international. Love is old and young. Love breaks through borders.

This jewel of a book will make you cry for joy and yearn for more.

Review:
"No.1 BEST HONEYMOON READ"
From the Publisher:
"A book that defies categorization, inviting us into the
company of strangers who treat us like their oldest friends. In the stories
of their lives, we witness their happiness, their love, and sometimes their
loss and disappointment. No story is like its neighbour, yet each is told
with vividness, economy and compassion.

In The Book of Happy Endings, Elise Valmorbida achieves something rare and
precious, and she writes like an angel."
--John Madden, director of Shakespeare in Love

Praise for Matilde Waltzing
"There have been countless books on the migrant experience, but few recall
this rite of passage with such wit and daring... Part of the book's charm
is its disarming and bold narrative style... Verdict: Involving read.
You'll enjoy waltzing this Matilde."
--The Sunday Herald Sun and The Sunday Telegraph, Australia

"Matilde's isolation in her widowhood is heart-wrenching; the moments of
joy are good enough to sing about - or waltz?"
--The Bulletin, with Newsweek

"Valmorbida writes with energy and challenges the conventionality of what
language can achieve... engaging, often funny, sometimes poignant..."
--The Canberra Times
