Wish You Well Book Review:

From bestselling author and master storyteller David Baldacci, Wish You Well is a dramatic and enthralling tale of family unity in the face of adversity. Tragedy strikes the New York-based Cardinal family when their car is involved in a terrible accident. Twelve-year-old Lou and seven-year-old Oz survive, but the crash leaves their father dead and their mother in a coma. It would seem their world has been shattered forever until their great-grandmother, Louisa Mae, agrees to raise the children on her Virginia mountain farm. But before long their rural idyll is threatened by the discovery of natural gas on the mountain. Determined to protect her home from the ravages of big business, Louisa Mae refuses to sell, but when the neighbours hear of the potential wealth the company could bring, they begin to turn against her. And now the Cardinal family find themselves ensnared in another battle, to be played out in a crowded Virginia courtroom: a battle for justice, for survival, and for the right to stay together in the only place they know as home. Filled with both rich humour and desperate poignancy, Wish You Well is a tale of family, faith, humanity and prejudice, set against the magical backdrop of the Virginia high rock.

Origins of Wish You Well Book Review:

David Baldacci has made a name for himself crafting big, burly legal thrillers with larger-than-life plots. However, Wish You Well, set in his native Virginia, is a tale of hope and wonder and "something of a miracle" just itching to happen. This shift from contentious urbanites to homespun hill families may come as a surprise to some of Baldacci's fans--but they can rest assured: the author's sense of pacing and exuberant prose have made the leap as well.

Wishing Well Book Review:

Make your own wishes come true, with a little help from New York Times bestselling author Paul Pearsall Like blowing out candles on a cake, we think of wishing as magic, never believing that our wishes can be realized. But wishing is more than just a dreamy occupation. It is one of our most powerful ways of influencing our own and others' destiny. In this revolutionary book, New York Times bestselling author Paul Pearsall tells us how to make our wishes come true. He reveals the act of wishing to be a unique ritual with its own set of ancient rules that can transform life. In this fascinating, step-by-step approach on turning wishes into realities, Pearsall offers the results of his ten-year study of over 2,000 wishers and shows how to wish effectively from the heart, not the brain. He presents the cultural and spiritual aspects of wishing and the facts that document and prove the crucial role it plays in our daily life. Fun, mystical, and rewarding, Wishing Well is the first book ever to show that wishes can come true, as long as we wish well. "Your intent alters your reality." --Paul Pearsall

Three Weeks with My Brother Book Review:

In this New York Times bestseller, follow the author of The Notebook as he travels the world with his brother learning about faith, loss, connection, and hope. As moving as his bestselling works of fiction, Nicholas Sparks's unique memoir, written with his brother, chronicles the life-affirming journey of two brothers bound by memories, both humorous and tragic. In January 2003, Nicholas Sparks and his brother, Micah, set off on a three-week trip around the globe. It was to mark a milestone in their lives, for at thirty-seven and thirty-eight respectively, they were now the only surviving members of their family. Against the backdrop of the wonders of the world and often overtaken by their feelings, daredevil Micah and the more serious, introspective Nicholas recalled their rambunctious childhood adventures and the tragedies that tested their faith. And in the process, they discovered startling truths about loss, love, and hope. Narrated with irrepressible humor and rare candor, and including personal photos, Three Weeks with My Brother reminds us to embrace life with all its uncertainties . . . and most of all, to cherish the joyful times, both small and momentous, and the wonderful people who make them possible.
