Publisher's Summary

From the author of What Remains True comes an emotionally captivating novel about a woman who wishes away her troubles but doesn’t anticipate the cost.

I wish...

It starts with a simple wish, and Emma Davies hardly notices when it comes true. She’s too preoccupied with a life she isn’t happy in - the spark in her marriage has fizzled, her career is headed nowhere and her boss is a misogynist. Her teenage daughter has grown distant, and her heart breaks daily for her teenage son with cerebral palsy. But soon Emma discovers her wishes are coming true, and she realizes that she has been given the power to change her life. Either that, or she’s going insane.

Emma begins testing her newfound gift, making calculated wishes and learning one important rule - once granted, they cannot be undone. Over time, she grows bolder as she builds up to the one wish she both fears and desperately longs to make. But when Emma finally gets everything she’s asked for, will it be worth the price?

I tried

I couldn't finish this. I made it to chapter 13 and had to stop. The main character just wasn't likeable for me. I don't seem to connect well to the weak and , sorry to say, stupid. It may get better, but life is too short to waste time on unliked books. Chapter four was the beginning of its demise.

Amazing!

This is the best book I have read in years! I read two or more books week, so that is quite a statement. It was entertaining but also had an important moral. It was a timely reminder for me...

Made me cry a lot

Strange and unbelievable story. Frightening even sometimes. But well worth reading. Good reading for a mother. Get the Kleenex.
