Book Synopsis

With exclusive travel photos and a special letter from the Author, only available for e-readers.

From the author of The Longest Ride and The Return comes a novel about the enduring legacy of first love, and the decisions that haunt us forever.

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 met Bryce Trickett, one of the few teenagers on the island. Handsome, genuine, and newly admitted to West Point, Bryce showed her how much there was to love about the wind-swept beach town—and introduced her to photography, a passion that would 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.

  • Should have 10 Stars, Not Five!

    Do not where to begin to tell you how much I loved “The Wish!” Such real characters, I felt Maggie and Bryce were neighbors I had prayed over. An ending I never expected. Must admit that I could not sleep one night, worrying about the outcome of this book. Got up and read the last chapter so I could finally go to sleep. That is how real Nicholas Sparks made these characters. Must read!

    Trust me - just get through the beginning and you’ll very much enjoy it! It felt a little slow to me at first but you needed the storyline. The end had me crying for the characters - both happy and sad tears!!

  • A great read and a long cry

    By mlyons7
    I love all of Nicholas Sparks books but this one personally hit home. Through the book I thought I knew what was coming and that it was predictable, but the ending left me sobbing. Themes of young love, adoption, finding oneself, death and grief… whew.
