After losing her husband and daughter in a car accident, Diane is thrown in a depression state for over a year. Her friend Felix is trying to intervene and get her out of the apartment where she is isolating herself, but cannot get her to leave the house, not even for the one-year ceremony of her family’s death.

Felix also runs the coffee shop from Paris she is owning. A gift from her parents that she has been neglecting ever since the accident, “Happy People Read and Drink Coffee”, is at the edge of bankrupt, since he is not able to fill in all the positions.

After insisting on vacation from Paris, Felix convinces Diane to accept leaving her apartment, but under her conditions, she rents a house in Mulranny, Ireland and decides to go live there for a while. In wild Ireland, she will meet her arrogant neighbor Edward, that she will hate, start to love and hate again.

I will not tell you the end of the story since it is one that you will not be expecting, not quite the happy ending romance, but one that will stick with you for a while. Join Diane in her journey of rediscovery and learn to deal with heartbreak, loss, and depression.
