This Particular Happiness: A Childless Love Story
As a farm girl in eastern Oregon, Jackie Shannon Hollis expects to become a mother someday. After several failed relationships, she falls in love with Bill, a man who doesn't want children. THIS PARTICULAR HAPPINESS explores the fracturing of female identity as Jackie navigates her roles as daughter and wife and sister and friend, and tries to listen to her own heart. This debut memoir explores what we keep and what we abandon to make space for love.
