あらすじ・解説

Includes an exclusive introduction from the author.

The international number one best-selling author of The Notebook, Nicholas Sparks is back with his most epic story yet.

What if the person you needed most turned up when you least expected them?

Maggie hasn't told this story in years. More than two decades ago, she fell in love. She was 16 and far from home, waiting to give her baby up for adoption. Bryce showed Maggie how to take photographs, and he didn't judge her for the way her belly swelled under her jumper. They had the perfect first kiss. Theirs was a once-in-a-lifetime kind of love.

Now, as Maggie sits by the Christmas tree in her gallery telling her story, surrounded by the photographs that made her famous - the photographs Bryce never saw - her new gallery assistant asks her a question. If she had one wish, what would she wish for this Christmas?

Maggie always thought she knew the answer to that question. But before she can say 'I'd go back to that winter with Bryce', she stops herself. It is all she has ever wanted, but suddenly here, on this dark night under the twinkling stars, there is something else she wants. She wants to find her baby.

A heart-wrenching and uplifting story about discovery and loss, The Wish is a reminder that time with those precious to us is the greatest gift of all.

I loved every minute of my listening

I have read almost all books by Nicholas Sparks and starting to read his latest book I was wondering whether I would be as overwhelmed by the story as I was before. And I was! As English is not my mother tongue unlike native English speakers I read not only for the story but for the language. Nicholas Sparks has never let me down in any way The performance was excellent! Every day I was looking forward to the time I could carry on listening to the book like I was addicted. Thank you for the precious moments!

The wish

I feel that this book should come with a warning…. If you are not in the mood to deal with the main character battling with stage 4 cancer ( a fact we told right from the start so I don’t feel a spoiler alert is necessary) then you might not want to read / listen to this book right now.

Nicholas says in the introduction…this will make you cry ( although that’s nothing unusual for one his books) and yes I did cry.

That said it is a good, enjoyable story, (although particularly one of Maggie’s decisions didn’t make sense to me , I’m detracting one star because of this. .)
I didn’t think it could come with a satisfying ending but it does.
Well narrated

Not very Christmassy

The ending is typical Nicholas Sparks. Nice message but I wouldn’t consider this a Christmas book.

Very gloomy book about a woman dying of cancer

You discover at the beginning of the book that she's dying of cancer, so no spoilers.
For a start I found the narration awful. Initially, one character started everything he said with a slight laugh. It was clearly infectious as each character in turn caught this irritating trait. Too many characters shared their voice with others.
Regarding the story, it was really gloomy. I think the first four chapters focussed on dying of cancer, and of course that topic cropped up again and again throughout the book. At one point I became a little curious as to where the story was heading, hence the second star. Curious in the sense that surely the book wouldn't be so predictable, and therefore where would it go? But no, I was wrong, it was totally predictable.
I used to read Nicholas Sparks years ago, so was expecting good writing, but the story was weak, with phrases repeated throughout. I'm sure, for example, that most of us could think of a number of ways of saying, 'I don't know'. But it seems Sparks can only say it one way, no matter which character is speaking: 'I have no idea'. It became distracting.
And really, the whole book was gloomy (he even introduces the book by telling you that you will cry). I don't think I'll read any more of his books, and I certainly couldn't recommend this.

I can't fault it but...

I can't fault it but I also can't say I enjoyed it. If you like to wallow in misery, this will work for you.
It is beautifully written and performed, and should probably be subsidised by Kleenex. It definitely doesn't spread a little joy around the world.

Best Nicholas Sparks book ever

Extremely emotional book. I cried buckets. Nicholas Sparks weaves his magic again. Must read. You won't be disappointed.
