I've read "Twenty Wishes" several times over the years, and I have found lessons to live by each time. It is the most encouraging book I know to help someone who is stuck in depression, or blocked from moving on after losing a loved one either through a divorce or death. I have recommended this book often and have given it as gifts to friends. Once articulated, a wish can become a dream fulfilled. I like the variety in age and life situations that the principle beliefs apply in the stories. And many of the stories are completed in other Debbie Macomber Blossom Hill books.
