The Wishing Tree Book Review

I have a new book to share with you today called The Wishing Tree which is a complex story about betrayal from the man you love and will you be able to forgive or is it better to cut and run? That's a good question and the writer, Marybeth Whalen will take us down that mystified road to discovery.
Here is an excerpt from the book:
Savvy, determined Ivy Marshall discovers that her husband has cheated on her on the very same day her sister's perfect boyfriend proposes on national television. When Ivy's mother asks her to return to her family's beach home to plan her sister's upcoming wedding, she decides to use the excuse to escape from the pain of her broken heart. 
When her return to Sunset Beach, North Carolina, brings Ivy face to face with her former fiance, old feelings are rekindled and she wonders if there is a future for them. However, when Ivy refuses to talk to her husband, he resorts to tweeting to her, expressing his remorse and making it clear he doesn't want to give up on their marriage.  
As she helps prepare the wishing tree for her sister's wedding, she must examine her dreams for her own future and what true love should be.
Ivy lost her job when her branch closed and then on top of that, her sister gets the most romantic marriage proposal and Ivy see's Elliot coming out of an apartment and realizes that he is having an affair.

So, what does she do? She hightails it home and sulks for a little bit but slowly and surely, her sister's wedding and talking with her parents has made her see things she might not have seen. Also, Elliot follows her down to her parent's house to try and make amends.

Will Ivy listen to her heart and forgive Elliot or will she make a mistake and give in to the temptation of seeing her former boyfriend that she left behind?  Will she give Elliot a second chance and in turn give herself a second chance?  Her sister's wedding is upon them and things are seen in an even more clear more true way for Ivy. What's going thru her mind?

Happy Reading!

Wow, this hits home with me! I was betrayed by my husband - who promised (ha!) to love, honor and cherish me. All he did was use me. It is the ULTIMATE betrayal when it comes from someone with whom you have given your heart, body, and spirit! scain54 at aol dot com
