With exclusive travel photos and a special letter from the Author, only available for e-readers.
From the author of The Longest Ride and The Return comes a novel about the enduring legacy of first love, and the decisions that haunt us forever.
1996 was the year that changed everything for Maggie Dawes. Sent away at sixteen to live with an aunt she barely knew in Ocracoke, a remote village on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, she could think only of the friends and family she left behind . . . until she met Bryce Trickett, one of the few teenagers on the island. Handsome, genuine, and newly admitted to West Point, Bryce showed her how much there was to love about the wind-swept beach town—and introduced her to photography, a passion that would define the rest of her life.
By 2019, Maggie is a renowned travel photographer. She splits her time between running a successful gallery in New York and photographing remote locations around the world. But this year she is unexpectedly grounded over Christmas, struggling to come to terms with a sobering medical diagnosis. Increasingly dependent on a young assistant, she finds herself becoming close to him.
As they count down the last days of the season together, she begins to tell him the story of another Christmas, decades earlier—and the love that set her on a course she never could have imagined.

Please Stop advertising businesses in novelsWell written. Engaging story. Would have preferred to not have advertising in the novel, that takes me out of the story, and that bothers me. Hope Duane Reed paid the publisher and author handsomely for all the mentions , and I do not plan to buy another of this authors books. I do not support advertising in novels..Score: 4/5

Best of them all.I’ve read every single one of his books and this one, was so special. All the thoughts I had earlier on in this book were both right and wrong, so many observations and realizations to the real world, I cried so many times! To think this does happen in real life, any time I read a book I always make a scene in my head like a movie (books are clearly always better) and I just can’t believe how this tale ended. My heart aches in different ways as becoming to the ending figuring it out right before I read it. How this book came about has clearly been meant to make people cry and for hearts to come as one. I’m so glad In my years of reading his books, I started at a young age and he was the first author I started reading, that being said, I cannot wait until his next book, this for sure was one of his bests, I’m glad I ordered it and read it. It was hard at first because all I wanted to do was read one more chapter but work calls, but finally I finished it and OMG I love it. Definitely recommend.Score: 5/5

Nicholas Sparks Has Another #1 BestsellerI bought The Wish by Nicholas Sparks the day it was available in stores. I am so happy that I did. I love his books because they really make you feel. The Wish is an inspiring and heartfelt story. The book definitely tugs at your heartstrings especially the last few chapters so I’d grab a tissue box. It will make you smile and cry. To me, The Wish is about teenage pregnancy, adoption, parental expectations, life, love, friendship, cancer, humor, honesty, generosity and passion. I fell in love with all of the characters. I love the setting and where the story took place. I really didn’t want the book to end because it was that good. This story is one that I will remember and cherish forever. My heart will forever be with Maggie and the love that she had for Bryce. I would have to say that The Wish is by far my favorite right next to The Return and The Longest Ride. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves Nicholas Sparks and his storytelling..Score: 5/5
