Publisher Description

The critically acclaimed bestseller from the author of The Moment and A Special Relationship.

New York, 1945 - Sara Smythe, a young, beautiful and intelligent woman, ready to make her own way in the big city attends her brothers Thanksgiving Eve party. As the party gets into full swing, in walks Jack Malone, a US Army journalist back from a defeated Germany and a man unlike any Sara has ever met before - one who is destined to change Sara's future forever.

But finding love isn't the same as finding happiness - as Sara and Jack soon find out. In post-war America chance meetings aren't always as they seem, and people's choices can often have profound repercussions. Sara and Jack find they are subject to forces beyond their control and that their destinies are formed by more than just circumstance. In this world of intrigue and emotional conflict, Sara must fight to survive -against Jack, as much as for him.

In this mesmerising tale of longing and betrayal, The Pursuit of Happiness is a great tragic love story; a tale of divided loyalties, decisive moral choices, and the random workings of destiny.

The Pursuit of Happiness

This is the second time I've read this book and have to say I thought it compelling reading both times, even though I was tempted to skip through what happened to Eric as the outcome was too awful. I liked the characters, with all their flaws, but sadly I just did not like Kate. That said I'm not sure we are supposed to like her. I do think Douglas Kennedy is a very good writer and I am now deciding which one I will reread
