Little Wishes by Michelle Adams ~ My Thoughts #LittleWishes

Little Wishes by Michelle Adams
Women's Fiction, 400 pages
Published November 17, 2020 by William Morrow

For anyone who loves One Day in December and Me Before You, a sweeping love story, written with tenderness, warmth, and a generosity of spirit, about first love and second chances, a lifelong dream and finding the courage to follow your heart.

On her favorite day of the year, Elizabeth Davenport awakens in her cottage on the wild and windy Cornish coast, opens her front door, and discovers a precious gift: the small blue crocus and a note that begins I Wish . . . The notes are never signed, but she knows they’ve been left by her first and truest love, Tom Hale. Each of these precious missives convey a simple wish for something they had missed, and the life they might have shared, if circumstances hadn't forced them apart all those years ago. She has kept them all. 

But on this day, what should have been the fiftieth anniversary of their falling in love, the gift fails to arrive. Could something have happened to Tom? Elizabeth has always been plagued by thoughts of “what if?” Propelled by worry and decades of pent up longing, Elizabeth packs a little suitcase, leaves Porthsennenon, and journeys to London . . . to find the love of her life once again. 

Finding him, Elizabeth is faced with the desperate knowledge that any time they might have now is running out.  Never before had she thought that she might truly lose time—forever. And now, knowing that life is too short, Elizabeth vows to fulfill as many of Tom’s wishes as she can. Yet she fears that her efforts may expose the shameful secret that, until now, has kept them apart.

Can she continue to hide the truth, or will she have the courage to reveal herself completely and finally make their dreams come true—before it’s too late?

My thoughts about Little Wishes ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First lines—"On her favorite day of the year, Elizabeth Davenport awoke alone, as she had done for the best part of five decades."

Little Wishes is such a sweet, heart-warming love story. For almost fifty years, Elizabeth has received a little gift on her doorstep from the love of her life. But then, one year, there is no gift. Elizabeth sets out to find the man who stole her heart all those years ago and to possibly right a wrong. Hopefully it's not too late.

This is a story that stole my heart and filled me with hope and redemption. The love that these two people expressed for one another was such a beautiful thing to see. This book made me smile through my tears and I loved every second of it. 

I received a copy of Little Wishes from Goodreads and this is my honest opinion of the book.
