Product Description

From School Library Journal

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

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.

While walking home one evening during a raging snowstorm, waitress Bree Miller is struck by a vehicle skidding out of control on the icy road. The vehicle's driver is renowned author, Tom Gates, who has just moved to the small Vermont town to take stock of his life tainted by fame. Tom accompanies Bree to the hospital, and remains with her during her recovery there, and eventually at home. Bree has no family to speak of, and her dreams of a home, a man to love, and family, appear to be within her grasp in the form of Tom. Eventually, she confides in him of her out-of-body experience, during the time her heart had stopped after the accident. She saw a white light, full of love, which once revived; she felt this entity had given her three wishes. The only thing is, she thinks there's a possibility she may die again once her wishes are fulfilled.
This was my first book to read by this author, and so far I haven't read any of her other work. It was a very well written and compelling story, with interesting, multi-faceted characters. In fact, I could hardly put the book down, because I kept wondering how it would end. The reason I haven't read anything else by this author, as good as she is, is because it was an emotionally draining story for me, full of bittersweet moments. My reading preference leans more toward romantic comedies or sweet, romantic love stories. If you don't mind quite a bit of sadness in your romance reads, then this is probably the book for you.

The setting is that of a small Vermont town where the community knows everyone and is a family. The waitress at the local cafe, Bree Miller has no family in fact the community is her family. While walking on her way home one evening, Bree is hit by a passing jeep that is forced off the road by a truck that loses control on the icy road. She is rushed to the hospital and has a near-death experience while being revived on the operating table. During her "out-of-body" experience she receives three wishes to ask for.
The driver of the jeep, Tom Gates feels responsible and stays at the hospital for the days that it takes Bree to recover. Bree and Tom start getting to know each other by sharing about each other's lives. Tom is a famous author that has escaped from all of the publicity to the country to find himself again. He had separated himself from friends and family only to find himself alone in his life of fame and fortune. Through his time with Bree, Tom's experiences the joy of a simpler life. As Bree moves home from the hospital Tom becomes a regular there, too, against the wishes of the community, to help Bree continue to recover. She becomes more and more an important part of his life as he does for her- filling a void in her life for love that she never expected to experience. But what about the three wishes... were they real or just a dream? And what happens after the third wish is made? Bree and Tom fall in love but there are still parts of Bree's life that she wants to find out about - like the mystery of her mother that she never knew. Get ready... it's a tear jerker! Bree and Tom's love is sooooo fresh, sweet, and strong - yes, it is graphic at times, too!

Barbara has exceptionally mastered fitting all of the multifaceted concepts of love into a single work. Love between a man and woman, family, community, and even life itself is presented in such an emotional and clever way you will find yourself drawn in completely to the story. The protagonist, Bree Miller, seizes the reader with her dreams as well as her sensibility and independence. She immediately pulls you in with her extreme modesty, besides being a solitary spirit abandoned by her own mother. After she awakens from the accident, it becomes too easy to instantly fall in love with her and cheer her on as her whole world changes from that of a rational and lonely waitress to fortunate heroine gifted with a new life and three wishes. Panama, Vermont changes from a cozy place of quiet solitude to your own extended family and friends and the love shared by Bree and Tom will make you see you own loved ones with new compassion. Warmth radiates from the pages making it impossible to set down. Add in a tear-jerking ending and you have an excellent read.
This is a book you can go back to a thousand times and feel the same elation and heartache.

Having never heard of Barbara Delinsky, I wasn't sure whether or not her novel Three Wishes would be any good. To be honest, my mother recommended the book as a quick and easy read. Three Wishes is an incredible love story filled with both miracles and tragedy. Bree Miller of the sleepy little town Panama, Vermont, is walking home from work when she is hit by the unexpected truck which had skidded in the snow. She wakes up in the hospital where she remembers only a bright light and three wishes. She falls in love with Tom Gates, the driver of the truck and a struggling author. Ultimately, their relationship causes the greatest challenge and sacrifice of unconditional love. Delinsky uses a mixture of complex characters which differ enormously, yet all play major roles in the story line. She uses a descriptive style of language with a considerable amount of dialect to allow the reader to better understand the characters and their lifestyle in Vermont. Delinsky uses metaphors and symbolism to help reveal a clear and deeper meaning to the characters thoughts and feelings as well as the incidents which occur. She uses situational irony to create suspense of what will happen later on in the novel. Delinsky also uses a mass amount of imagery which leaves you with a clear picture of Panama, Vermont and the people who live there. This is a sentimental love story with a sappy ending, which explains that love overcomes all things in life, even the greatest tragedies. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to all.
