About the Book:

A thought-provoking, gripping, heart-wrenching story about a family plunged into crisis and how far we’re willing to go to protect the ones we love

Instant New York Times Bestseller • Good Morning America Book Club Pick • Oprah Daily’s #1 Novel of the Year


“I fell in love with the fascinating, brilliant family at the center of this riveting book.”—Ann Napolitano

“A brilliant, satisfying, compassionate mystery. I loved this novel.”—Gabrielle Zevin

“We didn’t call the police right away.” Those are the electric first words of this extraordinary novel about a biracial Korean American family in Virginia whose lives are upended when their beloved father and husband goes missing. What follows is both a propulsive investigation into the whereabouts of a father and an emotionally rich portrait of a family whose most personal secrets just may be at the heart of his disappearance. Full of fascinating questions of love, language, and what it means to be happy, Happiness Falls is an indelible tale of a family willing to go to remarkable lengths to truly understand—and find—one another.
