Happy Place by Emily Henry tells the story of Wyn and Harriet, former friends and fiances, who have broken up and now have to spend a week together on vacation with their friends. Harriet and Wyn’s friend group is in Maine for one last hurrah as the vacation home they’ve grown to love will no longer be available.
Common Themes + Opinions:
Wyn felt that because it was implied that he’d just follow his father’s footsteps into the family business, that he couldn’t leave and make a name for himself, which is why he did and even then, he still felt unworthy of his own success. As a result of all of this, he felt that he was also undeserving of Harriet, and was scared to admit this to her.
