Book Synopsis

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 meets Bryce Tricket, one of the few teenagers on the island. Handsome, genuine, and newly admitted to West Point, Bryce gradually shows her how much there is to love about the wind-swept beach town—and introduces her to photography, a passion that will 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.


The Wish is an intriguing read. The cover of this book is so fascinating it made me create a painting of the cover in my sketchbook. I love to read Nicholas Sparks books. The way he narrates the stories and the technique of using a story within a story is fabulous.

The Wish is a story about a girl named Maggie, her passion, her illness, her journey, and her survival. Maggie had survived plenty of setbacks due to her illness. The book is capable of making any reader cry numerous times while reading it. The other characters and their backstories are narrated wonderfully. The story touches the bottom of my heart gradually.

The author never failed to make my heart waiver with emotions. The story is not talking about love or romance. It talks about human desires and the wishes he or she wants in their life. Maggie always thought she knew the answer to that question. If she had one wish, what would she wish for Christmas? But before she can answer and say she would go back to that winter with Bryce, she stops herself. Things change so does her heart and answer to the question.
