Synopses & Reviews
Expect a miracle . . .
Barbara Delinsky’s “heart-tugging” (People) national bestseller resonates far beyond the extraordinary love story at its heart. Entwining courage, community, and the magical consequences of second chances, this brilliantly imagined tale explores the exhilarating question: What if wishes really could come true?
When waitress Bree Miller awakens in the hospital following a blizzard in tiny, picturesque Panama, Vermont, she can’t recall the near-tragedy that landed her there. But she’s overcome with the certainty that she has been granted three wishes. . . . Can they be real? Are the things Bree longs for—a home, a soul mate, a family—now within her grasp? One of her wishes seems to have come true already: at her bedside is Tom Gates, a renowned author who’s come to town to make sense of his fame—and who, as the accident’s only witness, now makes Bree his cause. As Bree and Tom consider their hearts’ deepest desires, they discover that they will have to take unimagined risks to truly live their dreams.
