              There are moments in history that connect us and define a country. In our hearts and minds, some moments rely on us to hold onto a dream, face tough challenges, and put in a great deal of effort. Big dreams can take generations. It can also take six million hand-driven rivets and... 53,000 tonnes of steel. The Day We Built the Bridge celebrates our connection with one another, and declares that despite the greatest of challenges, together we can make history.

              Rachel Hudson succumbs to cystic fibrosis at age twenty-seven, intentionally leaving behind secrets that push each of her remaining family to question what it is they want from life, and from each other. Her father Brian, a Vietnam veteran struggling with the long-term effects of... the war, has been missing ever since he walked out on Beth and their two children in the dead of night twenty years ago. Matt dreams of one day finding his own path like his heroic father, as Beth's religious fervour propagates a childhood of parental disappointment. Rachel sets before her family one last request: a journey to the exotic and the unknown. Rachel, ever the free spirit, administers a dose of her notorious wanderlust. The Happiness Jar is a story about how tightly you hold on to what you believe in; how one person's beliefs can affect a family and tear at the already fragile folds where love hides. It's about faith, and what can endure despite the burdens we place on ourselves and each other. Set against the red dust of the Kimberley desert, and the smoky backdrop of the holy river Ganges in India, The Happiness Jar is a novel that reminds us that we continue to live in the memories we leave behind. AUTHOR: THE HAPPINESS JAR, the second novel from Canberra author Samantha Tidy, will be published in September 2013 by Storytorch Press, and distributed nationally by Peribo Distributors of Fine Books. It will be launched on 4 September: Indigenous Literacy Day. Prior to publication, the novel was shortlisted for three Australian unpublished manuscript awards. These were not the author's first literary successes - Tidy's first novel Cappuccino Diva was runner up for the prestigious T.A.G. Hungerford Award in Western Australia, and her children's books have also received acclaim. REVIEWS: The Happiness Jar will take the reader on a journey of discovery, of oneself and those whom we love, and others we may not love at all. I found this book to be a wonderful read from start to finish
