Synopsis

Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty

They say trouble always comes in threes. And for sisters Lyn, Cat and Gemma Kettle, the year they turn thirty-three is no exception. Sensible Lyn is struggling to balance being a mother, wife and businesswoman without losing her mind. Cat, whose perfect marriage is the envy of all her friends, never suspects that her husband has been hiding a secret that will tear her life apart. And directionless Gemma, who changes jobs and boyfriends every few months, has just met a new man who could be the one to unlock her hidden past. Through everything, the bonds of the sisters are strong enough to withstand whatever life throws at them. That is until the night of their thirty-fourth birthday dinner, when home truths are revealed and things are said that can't be taken back...

Reviews

'Three Wishes is a exploration of family, relationships and modern love from the bestselling author of the hit HBO series Big Little Lies. They say trouble always comes in threes... from publisher's description I adored Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty ... It's fresh, very, very funny, accessible, and entertaining. But it's also intelligent and unsentimental about family dynamics' Marian Keyes

'Moriarty's first novel, written with wisdom, humor, and sincerity is an honest look at sisters who have a bond stronger than anything life throws their way' Booklist

'Quirky and lovable' Publishers Weekly

'Funny, wry, touching ... the drama is raw and real. Each of the beautifully drawn characters is so vividly alive' Australian Women's Weekly

'Funny, and Dramatic, with vibrant characters, it's a delight' Sunday Mirror

'Three Wishes feels firmly set in the real world, where trivial domestic details, biting pain and sudden joy regularly overlap on a daily basis' The Telegraph
