An uplifting, morale boosting book.
I really enjoyed this gentle, beautifully paced novel -- well, so much so, I went back and listened again.
What would you write down if you had twenty wishes? It's quite a question and, as the book suggests, not easy to do.
A group of widows decide to approach life positively and meet regularly to support each other as they devise and follow through their own twenty wishes.
This book gives heart to both the young and the old -- there's romance, laughter and family love. The characters are vibrant and the details of every day home life are familiar and reassuring. Yes, I'll use the well worn phrase, 'heart warming'.
I recommend this book as a rewarding listen in itself -- and as always, Tanya Eby Sirois' reading is excellent -- but also could be helpful for anyone who doesn't quite know how to proceed with life -- the main point is that by just taking on new dreams, other life doors were opened.
