Happiness, and other stories by Mary Lavin( Book )

13 editions published between 1969 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five short stories set in Ireland. As in "Happiness", where a young widow defies local conventions in her determination to be happy, the central themes are concern for the survival of the human spirit, and the right of the individual to decide moral issues in the light of private conscience. a characteristic of the author's work is her ability to move successfully from tragedy to humane farce, often within the same story
