Get out your tissue box - Nicholas Sparks' new book, The Wish, has just released!
Do you remember your first love? Was it just a high school fling or the real thing? In 1995 for sixteen year old Maggie Dawes, Bryce Trickett was the real deal.

It's now December 2019 and Maggie finds herself grounded in the gallery she runs. A sobering medical diagnosis has her reliving and recounting her past to the young man who is her assistant.

The past takes us to the North Carolina island of Okracoke - a real place I would love to visit. It is here that Maggie goes to live with her aunt and finish up her school year. She's fallen behind, so Bryce is hired as her tutor... Uh huh, they become friends and more. Sparks does a great job building the relationship in a thoughtful, caring manner. And it was easy to see how the two fell in love. The setting is absolutely wonderfully drawn as well. The supporting cast on the island are people you'd want to have in your own life - Aunt Linda especially.

Sparks flips the narrative from past to present, with Maggie's story slowly coming to light. And just when you're totally caught up in either past or present, the time frame changes. A guaranteed way to keep me up late turning pages. Now, the present is not a static time. Christmas is around the corner and Maggie and Mark decorate and take in events and experiences, many of them based on Maggie's memories of Okracoke. Which made me want to start decorating already!

Now, you just know that Sparks is going to play on your emotions - and yes, I bawled my eyes out in the last few chapters. And I was pretty sure I knew what the final pages (and I was right.) But, I really enjoyed the journey there. Heartwarming and heartbreaking.

Sparks is a consummate story teller and this newest only confirms that. ( )

When this book arrived in the mail, I wasn't expecting to finish it as quickly as I did. That qualifies this one as a real page-turner. In typical Nicholas Sparks style, he'll wrap you into the plot and make you fall in love with the characters, and then refuse to let go until it's your turn to put the book down and accept its conclusion.

Of course, I knew Nicholas Sparks' other work and I had a general idea of what I was getting into, but all the preparation in the world won't be enough to get you ready for a story like this. His fans will know this better than anybody, and this book is no different. When this work comes out later this month, you'll be in for another fantastic story.

When I first started reading this, I thought it was a little bit too easy of a plot device to have the lead character going through her predicament, but very quickly I realized just how important it was to the overall story, as it's something to keep in the back of your head as you make your way through this journey. You'll constantly be reminding yourself of this situation with every happy moment in her life, and it keeps the entire book feeling bittersweet from the first page to the last. I'm only mildly disappointed that I correctly predicted the ending very early in the book, but I acknowledged that it wouldn't have worked as well to tell this story properly any other way. I knew what was coming, and I still wasn't ready for it. That speaks volumes to the power of this storytelling.

Nicholas Sparks fans are in for a real treat with this new book, and I'm very excited for everyone eagerly waiting to experience this wonderful story. You won't be disappointed, but bring some tissues.

Thanks to Nicholas Sparks and Grand Central Publishing for providing me with an early review copy of The Wish. This review was entirely honest and unbiased. ( )
