Whether or not you remember Trista (Rehn) Sutter from her heartbreak on the first season of The Bachelor reality show or as the original Bachelorette, you’ve probably seen her on the cover of magazines like People and US Weekly or on shows like Ellen and Dancing with the Stars. She has rarely been out of the public eye since falling in love with Ryan Sutter on The Bachelorette more than ten years ago. This former pediatric physical therapist and Miami Heat dancer had her fairy tale fall into place with a whirlwind courtship and dream-come-true wedding to a poetry-writing firefighter (televised on ABC to more than 26 million viewers). The happy couple now has two adorable kids and a dog.
Sutter is often asked her secret to being one of the rare reality-TV relationships to make it to the altar and beyond. Through personal stories, as well as anecdotes from friends, family, and experts, she shares the simple yet profound keys to finding everyday happiness and success: gratitude and grace.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Happily Ever After is a very interesting book. The book is very well written and very interesting. Trista Sutter first gained fame on the reality TV show The Bachelor. She then sky rocketed to fame in the spin off The Bachelorette. Her openness makes the book easy to digest. She is an easy person to root for.
This is a very spiritual and uplifting book. You get a glimpse into her life, the ups and downs. She offers many takeaways in this book and I feel everyone can learn a little something about themselves as well as improve from this book.
