Twenty Wishes

Debbie Macomber, is a local Washington author who lives up in Port Orchard. She has sold more than 60 million copies of her books. Not a small feat for someone who had little secondary education and was thought to be mentally ‘slow’ throughout her youth. Her stories are light reading, with diverse characters, non-violent and clean cut, with wonderful, thought provoking messages throughout.

Also, if you are a knitter, you will be hooked. Debbie is an avid knitter and weaves knitting scenes and dialogue throughout her writing.

What do you want most in the world? Your wishes can come true — but not always necessarily in the way you might expect.

The storyline of “Twenty Wishes” tells of Anne Marie who owns a successful bookstore on Seattle’s Blossom Street. Along with several other widows, she creates a list of twenty wishes, and, while acting upon her wishes, becomes involved with an eight-year-old girl who helps her complete her list. It’s the fourth in the Blossom Street series and another fun, easy, and thoughtful read.

Titles In the Blossom Street Series
“The Shop On Blossom Street”
“A Good Yarn”
“Back On Blossom Street”
“Twenty Wishes”

There is another title that she wrote which ties into this group, but is not officially on the series list. It’s called “Susannah’s Garden” which I enjoyed very much as well.

So what are your Twenty Wishes? Things you want to do before you go face down in the porridge? Short term or long term. Doesn’t matter. Your wishes can change from week-to-year. Once you cross off one wish, add another. Here is a little fun list, you can click on it, print it, fill it full of your wishes and put it up on your fridge as a motivating reminder. No rules, no timeline, just tailor it for you.

May All Your Best Wishes Comes True!

  1. It is like you overheard my conversation with Scott last night. I am tripping out. I want to start something like this for myself and a picture list for my kids so the ones that can’t read can still visualize their wishes. I will print it off. Thanks
