Wish by Troy O'Neill


Wish by Troy O'Neill

Cole Caffy has dedicated his life as a talented engineer to building bridges that span rivers, which create safe passages. On the day of his retirement, he wonders what kind of life he'll lead without his days consumed by his passion for building bridges. The answer comes in the form of a mysterious letter delivered sans postmark by a mischievous mailman. The letter informs Cole that because of his good deeds, and all that he has readily put aside so that others may discover fortune in their lives, he has been granted the ability to have his own wishes come true. The unintended consequences of using his vibrant gift overwhelms Cole until a Dickens-like Clara Tout, another wish recipient, teaches Cole to understand the difference between wishing for what he wants and helping others obtain their own dreams. Wish explores the chaos that underlies the power to acquire whatever we want, even when one with a generous heart is handed the reins of that very power.
