The novel that has made 2 million readers happier! The story of one woman's inspirational journey from boredom and dissatisfaction to happiness and fulfilment!

This enchanting, feel-good novel was a runaway no.1 bestseller in France, parking itself in the top ten for 56 weeks.

“You’re probably suffering from a type of acute routinitis.”
“A what?”
“Acute routinitis. Finding it hard to feel happy despite an abundance of material wealth, a feeling of disillusionment and lethargy, amongst other things.”
“But . . . How do you know all that?”
“I’m a routinologist.”
“A routino-what?”

At thirty-eight and a quarter years old, Paris native Camille has everything she needs to be happy: a good job, a loving husband, a wonderful son. Why then does she feel as if happiness has slipped through her fingers? All she wants is to find the path to joy and fulfilment.

When Claude, a Sean Connery look-alike and routinologist, offers his unique advice to help get her there, she seizes the opportunity with both hands.

Camille’s journey is full of surprising escapades and richly meaningful lessons, as she sets out to transform her life and realize her dreams one step at a time. . .

'It's obvious why this charming book - funny, sweet and not without a few important happy-life tips - hit number one abroad' Good Housekeeping
