    Anne Marie Roche wants to find happiness again.

    On Valentine's Day, Anne Marie and several other widows get together to celebrate...what? Hope, possibility, the future. They each begin a list of 20 wishes. Anne Marie's list starts with "Find one good thing about life". It includes learning to knit, doing good for someone else, falling in love again.

    She begins to act on her wishes, and when she volunteers at a local school, an eight-year-old girl named Ellen enters her life. It's a relationship that becomes far more involving than Anne Marie intended. It also becomes far more important than she ever imagined.

    Jane says: "An uplifting, morale boosting book."
    "a get away"
    Overall

    very nice story - made me even think about what my 20 wishes should be. this is a girls book & yes it may be predictable but a very nice read.

    Sarah Price has never regretted trading her MFA for a steady job so that her husband, Nathan, could write fiction. But at age 35, her world is turned upside-down by a shocking revelation: Nathan's upcoming novel, Infidelity, is based on fact. Reeling from his betrayal, Sarah is plagued by dark questions. How well does she really know her husband? More important, how well does she know herself?

    What would have made Husband and Wife better?

    I am only into chapter 3 so far, the narrating for this book is very frustrating to listen to. I have just had to shut it off too many times now because of the whiney voice, the high pitch at times and the accents are just bad. She really tried you can tell but it is just very hard to listen too.

    On the morning of September 11, 2001, two men meet in a smoky stairwell of the World Trade Center. One is Eric Michaels, a driven financial manager from Los Angeles who has been busy climbing the corporate ladder, often at the expense of his wife and young son. The other is Jake Bryan, a New York City fireman devoted to his wife and daughter. In the midst of the crisis, Eric falls on the stairs and Jake stops to help him up. The two men freeze momentarily, stunned by the uncanny resemblance between them.

    ANN says: "What a concept!"

    Overall

    Beautiful, happily married, and the owner of a successful interior design business, Casey Marshall couldn't be more content with her life, until a car slams into her at almost 50 miles an hour, breaking nearly every bone in her body and plunging her into a coma. Lying in her hospital bed, Casey realizes that although she is unable to see or communicate, she can hear everything.

    Erin says: "I Stayed Up ALL Night Listening To This One..."
    "another one of Joys great writing"
    Overall

    even though at times it seem to slow down... the story kept you engaged. Some is predictable and some is not. Over all this is a good read.

    Knitting and life. They're both about beginnings - and endings. That's why it makes sense for Lydia Goetz, owner of A Good Yarn on Seattle's Blossom Street, to offer a class called Knit to Quit. It's for people who want to quit something - or someone! - and start a new phase of their lives.

    Marjory says: "The book was what I expected"
    "nice easy read"

    good story... typical Macomber read

    About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

    I want to say this is one of my favorite authors and this is the first one of her books that i have listened to. I don't know if that has any play into this review. Story is good but felt very long at times. One reason I like her is that I tend to be surprised by the ending and this one did just that. Only complaint is that story seemed to just go on and on at times.
