    Description

    From best-selling author and master storyteller David Baldacci, Wish You Well is a dramatic and enthralling tale of family unity in the face of adversity.

    Tragedy strikes the New York-based Cardinal family when their car is involved in a terrible accident. Twelve-year-old Lou and seven-year-old Oz survive, but the crash leaves their father dead and their mother in a coma. It would seem their world has been shattered forever until their great-grandmother, Louisa Mae, agrees to raise the children on her Virginia mountain farm.

    But before long their rural idyll is threatened by the discovery of natural gas on the mountain. Determined to protect her home from the ravages of big business, Louisa Mae refuses to sell, but when the neighbours hear of the potential wealth the company could bring, they begin to turn against her. And now the Cardinal family find themselves ensnared in another battle, to be played out in a crowded Virginia courtroom: a battle for justice, for survival, and for the right to stay together in the only place they know as home.

    Filled with both rich humour and desperate poignancy, Wish You Well is a tale of family, faith, humanity and prejudice, set against the magical backdrop of the Virginia high rock. Baldacci triumphs with his best novel yet, an utterly captivating drama.

    Truly wonderful story

    I've always been a "fan" and was a little apprehensive at David Baldacci venturing into a different area of storytelling. Should I take that ride with him? I am so glad I did. His way with words painted a picture that did not need me to close my eyes (lucky, I was listening to an audiobook in the car). The characters captured my interest and I hope he chooses to fill in the stories of the family members between then and now. I live a long way from the setting of this story but I could have lived in the next valley I was so caught up in the ebb and flow of the families sadness and joy. Thank you David. Please explore this family further.

    Berührend

    Eine Geschichte oder ein Buch lohnt sich für mich, wenn sie oder es mich berührt.
    Für mich war das ein „anderer“ Baldacci, als gewöhnlich. Aber einer der sich lohnt.
