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.

Everything you expect from a Nicholas Sparks novel
Having read / listened to every of his books so far, it amazes me, how after so many stories, that Nicholas Sparks still manages to find new twists & turns and styles in his story telling. He's been the first author who managed to make me cry over a book so many years ago. And yes, this one did it again.
A story about love, true & honest humans, a little NYC Xmas sparkle, the love for photography & travelling and the simple things that connect all of us.
The use of 2 very good speakers in the English audio book version makes it very easy to follow the story.
So sad and yet so wonderful
I just love Nicholas Sparks‘ novels, although I regularly cry half the time. Same happened here. Wonderful story, wonderful people, and a surprising plot twist. You really get to know everyone and understand that finding „the one“ is so precious.
