As a farm girl raised in eastern Oregon, Jackie Shannon Hollis expected to become a mother someday. But, after several failed relationships, she meets Bill, a man who doesn’t want children. In This Particular Happiness, Hollis examines her roles as wife and daughter, sister and friend, aunt and worker, as she learns to follow her own heart. In direct and intimate language, this debut memoir asks us to consider what we keep and what we abandon to make space for love.
