    Heartwarming novel!

    The Wish by Beverly Lewis is set in Colerain, Pennsylvania. Leona Speicher is thrilled when the Gingeriches move in next door because they have a girl the same age. Gloria Gingeriches becomes Leona's best friend. Leona spends quite a bit of time at Gloria's house while they are growing up. She finds that she prefers Gloria's family to her own. Leona felt that she was born to the wrong family. When Gloria is seventeen, her father, Arkansas Joe has a problem with the Bishop and the community. They the whole family disappears. Gloria leaves behind her dog, Brownie with a note for Leona. Leona does not understand why they just disappeared, but she hopes to hear from her friend soon. Leona hears nothing for three years and then she receives a letter from Gloria asking her to visit. Leona feels that God is calling her to help her friend. Gloria is at a crossroads and needs advice (and assistance). Leona wants to find out what happened three years ago that caused her family to leave without any word. Plus, she misses her dearest friend. Gloria was like a sister to Leona. Will Leona be able to help her friend? Join Leona as she sets out to help Gloria and hopefully return her to the community in The Wish. The Wish was a good book. It has excellent writing (as usual for Beverly Lewis) and the book moves along at a good pace. The book is about choices. It can be hard to make the right decision/choice. I thought the book had good moral lessons especially that with God all things are possible. You think someone has a better life (greener pastures), but you do not know what goes on behind closed doors. I give The Wish 4 out of 5 stars (I liked it). There is a little bit of romance in the story, but it plays out in the background (not the main focus of the book). I thought The Wish was a good, heartwarming novel. I look forward to reading Beverly Lewis' next novel. I received a complimentary book in exchange for an honest review. The comments and opinions expressed are strictly my own.
