Tolstoy’s novella, Family Happiness

That day ended the romance of our marriage; the old feeling from thereon became but a precious and irrecoverable remembrance; but a new feeling of love for my children and the father of my children laid the foundation of a new life and a quite different happiness; and that life and happiness have lasted to the present time.

–from Family Happiness by Leo Tolstoy, 1859

My novella, “A Portrait of Happiness and Love,” is inspired by Tolstoy’s novella, Family Happiness.

Not only that, I was given the great honor to write an introduction to Wiseblood Book’s reprint of Family Happiness. It can be found at Wiseblood Books and on Amazon.
