A Wish and a Promise

A wish and a promise!                                                                           What do you think of when you hear that phrase?

Wishes made upon a star?  Dandelion wishes?  Birthday wishes?

A promise of a reward at the end of the day?  A promise that you’ll start a diet, a project, or a good book tomorrow only to find that tomorrow keeps moving further away on your to-do list?

Wishing for a new bike, being promised it would happen…then feeling disappointment when it didn’t?

A wish and a promise makes me think of a great accomplishment because –

A Wish and a Promise is my second published book – talk about excitement!  I’ve wished for years (many) that I could write a book AND get it published.  I promised myself I would do it as soon as I found the time.  Do we ever actually find the time…unless we really want to succeed and therefore make the time? I found the time!

The book’s story is fictional.  It’s also realistic enough for you to feel as though you are sitting in front of the stone fireplace with Tootie – an adult grandchild – and her grandmother in Gram’s country home.  Tootie wants to know if Gram ever doubted any decisions she made raising her children or perhaps regretted some of the decisions she did make.  (I believe we can all identify with those questions on some level.) The weekend visit turns into wonders for Tootie.

It’s a cozy, easy read that will engage you and encourage you to find your own way of releasing regrets.   If you are looking for a short, entertaining, grounded story – a great read for the beach, on a plane or train, or just to relax in the evening – this book is right for you!

Wishing you the promise of a bright future,
