I Married You for Happiness is a slim little heartbreak of a novel. It begins with a wife finding her husband dead in their bedroom.  The story follows her staying with him all night until she can call the coroner in the morning.  As she tries to get through the evening, she remembers their relationship.

I appreciated that their marriage was a complex one and the story avoided treacliness.   It's stark and honest and it'll make you want to hold onto your loved ones.
