I really need a happy book

17 years ago

I mentioned on another thread how tired I am of reading books about sad and horrible subjects. I'd really like to read something happy for a change, and I would appreciate any suggestions any of you might have.

I've read most of the Jan Karon books (except maybe the the last one or two), and I'm looking for books along those lines, something with honest, kind-hearted characters who care about other people. I'd like a book where no young person is sexually abused, no woman is beaten or raped, no character suffers the cruelties of prejudice and discrimination. Even the YA books these days seem to be about such dark subjects. Am I asking too much?
