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?

Professional reviews

"Dara Rosenberg narrates this contemporary romance featuring Erin, an unemployed middle school teacher, and Jake, her brother's childhood friend and co-worker at the local fire department. Longing to return to sunny San Francisco, Erin is spending her summer looking for a new teaching job back in California, helping her mother recover from surgery, and moping around her cloudy hometown of Portland, Oregon. Though the novel is set in the Pacific Northwest, the characters frequently sound as if they would be more at home in the opposite corner of the country. Both the fluctuating speed of the narration and some unusual pronunciations add little to the story and fail to ignite the listener's imagination. A.L.S.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
