The Wishing Tree by Marybeth Whalen - Review
Book Description by Author WebsiteCompelling stand-alone novel with a southern, beach setting sure to appeal to fiction readers.
In The Wishing Tree, Ivy Marshall, a savvy, determined woman, finds out her husband has cheated on her on the same day her sister’s perfect boyfriend proposes on national television. When Ivy’s mother asks her to return to her family’s beach home to plan her sister’s upcoming wedding, she decides to use the excuse to escape from the pain of her circumstances.
When her return to Sunset Beach, North Carolina, brings her face to face with her former fiancé, old feelings rise to the surface and she wonders if there is a future for them. However, her husband has started tweeting his apology to her and doesn’t want to give up on their marriage. As she helps prepare the wishing tree for her sister’s wedding, she must examine her own wishes for the future and decide what love should be.
This seemingly real like situation book was incredible. When you read it, be prepared to be moved!! This book wasn't just about how Ivy Marshall coped with her husband Elliott's extramarital affair. This book was about forgiveness. It was about family as well as how Ivy found herself and how she needed others to forgive her. I was deeply touched with this book and found a little of myself in Ivy Marshall. Marybeth Whalen is an exceptional writer and I would recommend her books to anyone.
