Three wishes: a novel
With this tantalizing premise, bestselling author Barbara Delinsky delivers a love story wrapped up in a modern-day fable that will melt even the hardest of hearts as it restores faith in the possibility of magic in the miracle of everyday life.
The book opens on the first blizzardy night of winter, in a small town in Vermont. Slipping and sliding as she walks home from the diner where she has worked for 14 years, Bree Miller barely has time to notice the out-of-control truck barreling far too fast down a treacherous, snow-slick road, headed straight for her.
All Bree remembers of that fateful night is a bright light, and a voice granting her three wishes. Are they real or imagined? And who is the man standing over her bedside when finally she wakes up?
Soon Bree finds herself the recipient of precisely those things she'd most wanted in life...even that which had seemed beyond all reasonable hope. Whether it's magic, coincidence, or something else entirely, what Barbara Delinsky reminds us is that out of life's tragedies sometimes miracles are won.

A storyteller of unparalleled emotional intensity, bestselling author Barbara Delinsky has created a novel that resonates far beyond its extraordinary love story. Here is a tale of courage, community, and the magical consequences of being given a second chance.
What if wishes really could come true?
It's the question facing waitress Bree Walker when she awakens in the hospital following a blizzard in sleepy Panama, Vermont. While she can't recall the
near-tragedy that landed her there, she's overcome with the certainty that she has been granted three wishes. One seems to have come true already: at her side is renowned author Tom Gates, the accident's only witness, who had come to Panama to make sense of his fame -- and who now makes Bree his cause.
Suddenly, the things Bree has wanted most -- a home, a soul mate, a family -- are within her grasp. But are the wishes real? And if they are, what is their
price? As Bree and Tom consider what their hearts truly require, they discover that to live their dreams, they will have to take unimagined risks....
