No surprise there, because last year The Guest Book was my top pick, and in 2010, The Mailbox. Marybeth Whalen s books are THE PERFECT novels to take on vacation, or enjoy anytime you want an emotional, heartfelt escape into reading I ve mentioned before in past reviews, just how vivid and descriptive her writing is Her books also make me cry and I don t cry easy when reading I sat down and read this book from start to finish. The longer I read, the deeper I became engrossed and I could not go to bed without finishing it I have to say, this book surprised me because I was so stirred emotionally and kind of found myself disappointed at how Jaime Boler Thank you, Marybeth, for letting me ask you these questions Your fourth novel struck such a chord with me it s incredibly moving, tender, and sweet Did you always want to be a novelist Marybeth Whalen Thank you Yes, I have wanted to write novels for as long as I can remember But the thought of putting myself out there, and possibly failing, terrified me Of course, now I m so glad I finally did JB How would you describe The Wishing Tree in ten words or less MW A story about wishes we make and power of forgiveness. JB What inspired you to write this story MW In researching the history of guest books for my last novel The Guest Book , I stumbled across information about the tradition of putting up a wishing tree at a wedding I was intrigued and decided that would make a great element to wrap a story around next. JB I confess that, prior to reading The Wishing Tree Ivy has gone home to help plan her sister s wedding, she desperately needs this time away after finding out her husband had an affair Whalen has written another beautiful story about relationships, about love and forgiveness Some people won t like the ending but when it comes to a cheating spouse everyone has their own reason for reconciling or divorcing I think you ll enjoy this nice summer read Such a talented writer, I anxiously await each of her new books I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
