Twenty Wishes by Debbie Macomber.
A novel based on the lives of friends who also happen to be widows and their desire to find happiness again.
It's Valentine's Day, an unlikely day for widows to 'celebrate'. This is a day when they will plan their dreams. So twenty wishes are born. Each lady begins to write a list of want they want most in the world.
Some want a family they never had, others want romance and courtship, others want to marry again. Some want to learn to belly dance , for others a lunch buddy is a good place to start, and what about those red cowboy boots you've always wanted.
Anne Marie Roche is the main character who owns a bookshop and achieving her twenty wishes takes much courage and along the way
secrets are shared and past histories scrutinised but
'The past wouldn't change.
But the way Anne Marie saw the future would.'
As the story unfolds all the women see their lives in much different ways and realise that the future is there for living.
You've heard of the 'feel good factor' well this is a 'feel good book'. I loved it , it offers hope and the knowledge that dreams can become reality!
So how many wishes are on your list so far?
