THE WISHING JAR
Genre: Inspirational, Contemporary Romance
The Quinn women have always been strong and full of faith, but lately it seems as if nothing is going right. Widow Abby wants an uncomplicated life. A life where she isn't responsible for her ailing mother and her rebellious teenage daughter. A life that isn't one of just "existing" but full
Abby's mother, Edith, wishes she'd died the day she suffered a debilitating stroke. She feels trapped in her disfigured body and longs to know the reason why she is still here. Abby's daughter, Neal Grace, can't seem to stop her own world from spinning out of control. Her beloved grandmother is merely a shadow of her former self. Neal Grace yearns to be someone else. Is it possible that a small wishing jar with a Phoenix emblazoned on it holds the answers to their problems?
Don't pass on this book. Despite its small size, it packs a message worth reading. Be prepared to laugh and cry and feel everything in between while wishing the story would never end. If I had a wishing jar, I'd wish to be able to write as well as Stokes. (Mar., 304 pp., $16.99)
