Don't Worry, Life Is Easy

By Agnès Martin-Lugand

The much-anticipated bestselling sequel to the massive international phenomenon Happy People Read and Drink Coffee, which is in development as a feature film by The Weinstein Company.

Diane needs to start over again. After returning from Ireland and turning the page on her stormy relationship with Edward, the brooding Irish photographer, she is determined to rebuild her life in Paris with help from her best friend Félix. She focuses solely on getting her literary café back on track—until she meets Olivier.

He is kind and thoughtful, and she may have a future with him-until she stumbles across her former love at a photography exhibit. What is Edward doing in Paris? Why didn't he reach out? Faced with a hail of questions, her old flame remains cold and unresponsive. Apparently, he, too, has moved on.

In order to put the past behind her, Diane must go back over her tracks. Ireland saved her before. Can she get answers there and find peace again?

Praise for Happy People Read and Drink Coffee:

"Profoundly moving and expertly told, Happy People confronts life's most nightmarish tragedy with an unblinking examination. Diane's journey to find meaning again is at once charming and heartbreaking, and I found myself pulling for her to seek out her next experience of love. The wisdom and magic in these pages will linger long after the book is closed."
—#1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs

"A heartbreaking story of love and loss that will twist readers up in knots. . . Essential for any foreign literature or women's fiction collection."
Library Journal

"Martin-Lugand's sparse but emotionally forceful style, aided by Smith's translation from the original French, catches the sweeter moments between two people embittered by loss."
Kirkus Reviews
