Can she let go of her guilt? Can he forgive her before he loses her too?

Lori-Anne Delacroix has driven her teenage daughter Nadia to dance class hundreds of times, but one winter afternoon where roads are icy and Lori-Anne is preoccupied with her daughter’s uncharacteristic behavior, a distracted moment is all it takes to change their lives forever.

Shattered by this unimaginable tragedy, Lori-Anne and her husband Mathieu are torn apart. Mathieu falls into depression and can’t forgive his wife while she hides behind a wall of guilt and denial. Soon they are seeking a divorce . . . but then guided by his grandparents who have been married more than 60 years, Mathieu begins to heal and reaches out to his wife. But it might be too late. Lori-Anne has just found out devastating news, and time to fix her marriage is a luxury she can’t afford.

"It Happened to Us" is a beautifully written and true to life depiction of the struggle, the pain, and ultimately the healing that follows the worst tragedy all parents fear.

About the Author

François Houle’s books can best be described as character-driven stories that explore the importance that love, family, and friends play in helping us get through the many imperfections and challenges that life has to offer. François grew up one of five boys so it’s no surprise that family is a strong theme in his books. A lot of his inspiration for his first two novels "It Happened to Us" and "Beautiful Midnight" and his two novellas "We Became Us" and "Broken Hearts" came from the passing of his father in 2005. François grew up in a small town outside of Montreal, moved to Toronto when he was ten, and currently lives in Ottawa. An avid reader from a young age, he tried to create a comic book when he was twelve, penned hundreds of song lyrics as a teenager, and wrote his first novel in 1985, a sci-fi influenced by the novel "Dune." Several horror novels followed, and although none of these books will ever be published, they were important in his development as an author. In 1985, at the age of 22, he graduated from college with a Programmer/Analyst diploma and then went into the ice cream business with his family, owning three Baskin-Robbins franchises for about 6 years. In 1991, he started his IT career which now spans 27 years, and from 2003 – 2017, he was a Certified Professional Resume Writer.
