Inspiring fiction from New Zealand author. There is nothing much to say about Happily Ever after. The story that comes before is infinitely more interesting. Sometimes life throws in an element of the random. I try to embrace it. The only mistake at this point would be to try to keep things on their previous course. 28-year-old Ocean has been running her whole life – away from something, searching for something – not even she knows. Arriving in Picton after a long journey and embraced by the dark, dramatic hills of the Marlborough Sounds, she senses the wild Merry-go-round is finally spinning to a stop.
