'Charming, touching, surprising and ultimately uplifting. Funny, moving . . . I defy anyone to finish this story without tears in their eyes' Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Project

'Hilarious but heart-wrenching' Daily Mail

What would you do if you only had 100 days left to live?
Lucio Battistini has a list:
To win back his wife - the love of his life
To become a dad his kids will always remember
To help his father-in-law find love
To let his friends know how much they mean to him
And most of all he must make every moment count.

So far, he hasn't been getting it right. And if Lucio is going to become the man he was always meant to be, he's got a lot of work to do . . .

Funny, moving. . . I defy anyone to finish this story without tears in their eyes

Graeme Simsion, author of THE ROSIE PROJECT

Brilliant . . . thought-provoking and poignant


One Hundred Days of Happiness is a celebration of everyday life masquerading as a countdown to death. To read it is to realize that the child within us is still alive and well, ready to laugh, play, love unguardedly, and eat hot doughnuts.

Martha Woodroof, author of SMALL BLESSINGS
