Happily Ever Laughter
A Real-Life Tale
About the Book
Even as a child, author Porat Hammarberg was overcome by the quest for a soul mate. She was curious. What brings two people together? It was a mystery to her, and even at a very young age she wanted to find the answer. In Happily Ever Laughter, she shares her quest to find her soul mate, with insights-from-hindsight woven throughout the text. In this memoir, she narrates her journey into love, a path that has been rich with life, history, turns and tribulations, challenges and victories. Happily Ever Laughter offers five decades of life lessons and experiences, beginning shortly after the birth of the State of Israel, through her youth in Israel, three wars, a parental divorce, and her mother’s marriage to her soul mate. Hammarberg tells her story—a Jewish Israeli girl in quest of love, travel to America twice in a decade, and how love found elegant ways to unite her with her soul mate, a retired Lutheran pastor from a line of Lutheran pastors, the son of a bishop. It’s a tender and beautiful tale of real-life stories, sweet memories, and the opening of a heart.
