One evening Bree Miller is knocked down by a car. Badly injured, she is sure she died in the operating room and that she only has three wishes before she meets her fate. The driver, Tom, is horrified by the accident and devotedly helps her recover. But what will happen when Bree's wishes run out?

Reviews

Simon & Schuster got its wish by convincing Delinsky to switch publishers. Fans will surely get their wish when they read another juicy Delinsky novel. And we wish we could tell you more about the plot, but Delinsky is keeping mum.

A magical near-death experience charms a woman's life in this heartwarming novel from popular romance writer Delinsky (Together Alone; A Woman's Place; etc.). Bree Miller is content with her tranquil, solitary existence in picturesque Panama, Vt., until she is struck by a speeding Jeep. Waking in her hospital bed, she recalls the comfort of a bright light and a voice that sent her back from the land of the dead with a gift: she may have three wishes before she dies again. As she recovers, Bree finds she is no longer alone; beside her is Tom Gates, the man responsible for the accident. A successful lawyer who became a bestselling novelist, Tom has fled the New York glamour world to reconnect with his own lost soul. As Bree and Tom discover love and contentment, Bree can't help but wonder if the spiritual light and her promised wishes are real. Delinsky's prose is spare, controlled and poignant as she evokes the simplicity and joys of small-town life with the sugary finish of a Norman Rockwell scene. While the heart of the book is a love story, Delinsky manages to avoid romantic slush‘and she capably balances her narrative on the tightrope between spirituality and earthly love. 150,000 first printing; foreign rights sold in U.K., France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands; Literary Guild alternate; Reader's Digest Condensed Book selection. (Sept.)

YA‘On a bitterly cold October evening, a truck skids across icy roads into a car that slides uncontrollably into pedestrian Bree Miller. The driver, Tom Gates, spends days helping the woman recover both at the hospital and later at her home. As they fall in love, Bree eventually tells Tom about her near-death, out-of-body experience and her recollection that she has been granted three wishes by the Being of Light she met during the episode. Once the three wishes are granted, she feels that she will die once more. Bree uses one wish as a test but the result is ambiguous, so she can't be sure if it is luck or the true power of the granted wish. It is only after her death that Tom has the hindsight to see that Bree's three wishes had been granted. Delinsky draws detailed portraits of her characters, from physical attributes to personalities. The picture-perfect, small-town Vermont setting is effectively drawn. The mystery of Bree's mother's identity adds another layer to the intriguing plot. For YAs who are fond of Lurlene McDaniel's novels, Delinsky's book is a natural progression into adult writing of the same genre.‘Pam Johnson, Fairfax County Public Library, VA
