A real-life The Secret with a strong dash of Eat Pray Love and Salvation Creek, The Wishing Year will touch anyone who has ever made a wish . . . The Wishing Year is a captivating memoir of one woman's courageous year-long journey to make her most fervent wishes come true. Taking stock of her life one New Year's Day, Noelle Oxenhandler found it sadly wanting. And so, stifling her doubts, she brazenly launched three wishes into the universe: for a new love, a healed soul and a place to call home. So begins both a journey of self-discovery and a mystical exploration of the quintessentially human art of wishing - from primeval magic to contemporary belief in the 'law of attraction'. Ultimately, as Oxenhandler's wishes start to come true, she discovers both the power of wishing and the truth behind the cautionary adage 'Be careful what you wish for'. Delightfully candid, insightful and ripe with promise, The Wishing Year will inspire even the most sceptical reader to wish upon a star.
