I read Family Happiness some 3 years ago but I remember that feeling that crept into me after I closed the book: a mix of sadness and happiness, I think I've never felt like that after I read something - I was just so happy for Masha for finding happiness with her newborn and husband,but also sad because while finding happiness in her new life as a woman, she stepped out of her childhood (I think she was about 18 or 20 then) and also because I think girls shouldn't get married at such tender age, however Masha has proved that she is mature for her new role and way of living. But despite all that I was sad and somehow angry at her husband who has "taken her youth" - because of personal reasons :)
All in all a cute and refreshing masterpiece!
