The Wishing Tree presents its readers with a story of second chances and forgiveness long overdue. It reminds us of the beauty of the love of God and the love of family. The story is charged with the idea that we all must seek forgiveness and in turn must give the gift of forgiveness as well.
I enjoyed this story because the setting was an all too familiar one for me, ranging from the lush mountains to the sandy beaches of North Carolina. In addition, the author brings a realistic perspective to the task of forgiving. Too often we are told to forgive and forget, but how often can we carry that out? Marriage and forgiveness work hand in hand and they are just that, work. Yet, with God's help a person can find true joy in this life.
I received a free copy of this book for review from Booksneeze.
