Three Wishes : An Extraordinary True Story of Good Friends on Their Journey to Motherhood Paperback
Carey, Beth, and Pam, have good luck in their friendships and careers, but terrible luck in relationships.
Which makes it more difficult to get what they truly desire: children. And time is running out. Carey is the first to abandon the traditional path to motherhood.
She decides to go it alone, and buys eight vials of sperm from the perfect donor.
Maybe it's newfound confidence from taking control of her destiny.
Maybe it's sheer coincidence. But on the day the vials arrive, she meets a man online.
They fall in love. And she gets pregnant the old fashioned way. Carey passes the vials to Beth, who has just recovered from a wrenching divorce.
But before she can use the vials, Beth meets a man on an ice-climbing trip.
She too falls in love. And gets pregnant. So she gives the vials to Pam. Pam will never stop searching for the love of her life, but she's ready to be a single mother.
Then the magic strikes again. Is it lucky sperm? Or shared hope, determination, and resilience that pave the way to these happy endings?
Despite soured relationships and crushing losses, three women become three families, revelling in the shared joys of love, friendship, and never giving up.
