Caitlin's Wish - Second Edition

Rating
Caitlin's Wish is an enchanting and moving story based on real life events; an inspiring tale of triumph over adversity. It follows one little girl's journey as she comes to terms with her father's life-changing illness. Unable to accept all the changes in her life, Caitlin asks herself, "Why me? Why my family?" She hides her true feelings from everyone around her, only confiding in Rufus, a little robin who sits on her windowsill. She pours her heart out to him, completely unaware of his magic abilities. Rufus arranges a trip to an enchanted world where anything is possible. Join Caitlin on her magical adventure to Fairyland where she re-discovers her happiness and learns to see life from a new perspective. Once you've read Caitlin's Wish, you'll never see life in the same way again. Victoria Taylor lives in Wales with her husband and 2 children. She began writing as a way of helping her young daughter come to terms with her father's rare brain condition, IH. Caitlin's Wish was published in 2010 in the hope of helping other children as well. It soon became apparent that people of all ages were reading the book; whole families were using it to open the discussions into their own personal situations. As Victoria had simplified the first book to aim it at a younger audience and now people aged 5-95yrs old were reading it, she made the decision to write a new book, based on the original story, and so the second edition of Caitlin's Wish was born. 25% of the royalties from the paperback sales are going to Crossroads Care (www.crossroads.org.uk) and IH Research Foundation (www.ihrfoundation.org)
