LoveReading Says

LoveReading Says

At a challenging junction in her life, 16-year-old Maggie is sent away to live with her Aunt Linda on the other side of the country. Homesick, ashamed and scared, her aunt’s unconditional love – and the life-changing relationship she forms with local teen, Bryce – help her cope in an otherwise dark time. Fast forward 24 years, Maggie is living in New York and facing an even tougher battle. But when a gentle soul unexpectedly enters her life, she’s finally able to open-up about love, motherhood and her one special wish. There are so many gorgeous relationships in Nicholas Sparks’ latest, where to even start! The Maggie and Bryce love story lies at the novel’s heart, but just as powerful are the connections Maggie makes with Aunt Linda, with Ocracoke Island, and with her gallery assistant some years later. Sparks really does have the magic touch when it comes to people and place; each nuanced gesture or passage of dialogue adding emotional weight to the story. His character development is never rushed (the dual timeline slowing things down perfectly), but instead builds steadily – you’ll be 100% invested by the end, making it all the more heart-wrenching when events take unexpected turns. The Wish is a precious reminder about the fragility of life and the importance of following your heart. It’s a story about finding connections where you least expect it. And it’s an enchanting read for the holiday season. Just make sure the tissues are close to hand…
