Book Description

Feb. 1 2000
New York Times bestselling author Linda Lael Miller gave readers "a gift to treasure" (Romantic Times) with her acclaimed Springwater Seasons novels. Now, once again capturing the spirit of early America, she delivers a marvelous tale of love, family loyalty, and passionate desire on the Western frontier -- where fairy tales sometimes do come true.
She was the only child of a rich and powerful rancher. He was the son of a drunken ne'er-do-well. But when eleven-year-old Luke Shardlow rescued eight-year-old Charity Barnham from drowning, she promised him one wish...any wish his heart might desire.
Fifteen years later, Charity and Luke meet once more, but the gulf between them seems as wide as ever. Charity is engaged to a neighboring rancher her father has chosen for her. Luke still seems to be a Shardlow to the core -- a drifter, maybe even an outlaw, on a road to nowhere. But things are not always what they appear, for Luke has a few secrets to hide. And as a sweet, sensual passion begins to grow between them, Luke and Charity discover that the only wish either of them long to fulfill is to spend a sweet eternity in each other's arms -- no matter the cost.

Review

Magical. Ms. Miller touches our hearts again in a very special way. Do not miss this wonderful story. -- Old Book Barn Gazette

From the Back Cover

She was the only child of a rich and powerful rancher. He was the son of a drunken ne'er-do-well. But when eleven-year-old Luke Shardlow rescued eight-year-old Charity Barnham from drowning, she promised him one wish . . . any wish his heart might desire.

Fifteen years later, Charity and Luke meet once more, but the gulf between them seems as wide as ever. Charity is engaged to a neighboring rancher her father has chosen for her. Luke still seems to be a Shardlow to the core a drifter, maybe even an outlaw, on a road to nowhere. But things are not always what they appear, for Luke has a few secrets to hide. And as a sweet, sensual passion begins to grow between them, Luke and Charity discover that the only wish either of them longs to fulfill is to spend a sweet eternity in each other's arms no matter the cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Miller! Oct. 8 2003
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I just adore this book! I have worn out one copy already, and am working on the second. Charity and Luke are characters that I can really care about, and I get caught up in the struggles they face to be together against all odds. There is a minor secondary story, of Molly and Raoul, that I wish would be explored in depth in a follow-up novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars My "One Wish" is that there is a sequel.... April 30 2003
By Kami
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thought that this book was excellent. My mother had bought it (she is into romance novels) and when I had finished a book of my own, she suggested I read it. I was not really enthused to be reading a romance novel but decided to give it a try and I must say I NEVER PUT THE BOOK DOWN, I carried it with me religiously so that I could sneak a read every time I got a chance!
The characters were very likeable and were easy to relate to. Right from the beginning to becoming intrigued with the story and it's characters and right at the second meeting of Charity and Luke - you're hooked! I must say that I don't blame Charity for falling in love with Luke, I think I fell in love with him myself!:)
This is a great read and I recommend it to everyone!....

3.0 out of 5 stars Predictable with a few turns Nov. 18 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It's a shame that the back cover tells so much.There's no surprise. Most book covers are the same though.I enjoyed it.I didn't like the descriptions of lovemaking. I like to leave a few things to the imagination. I will be giving the book away to a charity or to the library. I don't want my teenage daughter to read it.

4.0 out of 5 stars One Short Wish... Aug. 2 2001
By Jay
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"She was the only child of a rich and powerful rancher."
"He was the son of a drunken ne'er-do-well."
Your almost modern Romeo and Juliet, huh?
I must admit, I consumed this book within about 1 day. It kept me very enthralled, I found myself turning one page after another after another...
This book is a very good, "nonsense" book. Very good for vacations or just a book you might want to read in the bath tub or while relaxing. It's not like reading "Wuthering Heights" or decoding Shakespeare. It's a total relaxation book...

4.0 out of 5 stars Okay, but kinda long April 7 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Well, to tell you guys the truth, I didn't really expect the book to turn out the way it turned out. Oh, the story is okay, actually, not bad. A good read. But somehow it is not keeping to the title 'One wish'. The wish was reiterated at the end, like some sort of an afterthought - it was as if Miss Miller suddenly remembered the title and decided to hastily conclude the story with it.
And I don't like it when the Shardlow left and divorced his wife simply because of his notorious family name, only to come back to her a year later. If I were the woman, I'd slap and berate him first before accepting him with open arms. I mean, how DARED he put the woman in such a miserable, melancholic situation and asked her to marry another man just because he didn't think she would carry his name proudly?????
All in all, it's a pretty okay story, actually, but rather meandering. I found myself skipping some pages.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Story! Nov. 14 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I enjoy Linda Lael Miller, but this one wasn't one of my favorites. I've read many of her books that are in series format, and prefer it to this. The story was nice, and the ending had a bit of a twist. It pretty much is as the synopsis describes.
