New Orleans, a city of mystery and magic, of secrets and dreams, and a history drenched in both love and the deepest of heartache.
When ballet dancer Clara Campbell arrives in New Orleans, lonely and homesick, she is immediately captivated by the story of Windisle Plantation and the tragic tale that is said to have transpired beyond its gate. Legend has it that it is abandoned by all living souls, but to Clara’s great surprise, it is not a ghost she hears through the stone wall surrounding the property, but a flesh and blood man. A scarred stranger with a pain deeper and darker than the churning waters of the Mississippi river that flows beside his self-imposed prison.
The ruined man behind the wall hides himself from the world. The last thing he expects is to find a friend in the selfless girl who speaks to him through the cracks in the rock. The girl who keeps returning week after week. The girl who makes him wish for things he has long since given up on. The girl who strikes both fear and hope within his wounded heart. But there can be no future for them, no life beyond Windisle, for no one knows better than him that monsters only live in the dark.
The Wish Collector is the story of shame and triumph, of loneliness and love, and the miracle of two hearts connecting despite the strongest of barriers between them.
The Wish Collector is about an ambitious young lawyer named Jonah who falls from grace early on in his career. Because of poor choices and other pertinent reasons, Jonah becomes a recluse, spending years hiding behind the walls of the historic Windisle Plantation. I knew it would take one special soul to snap him out of it and Mia Sheridan describes the perfect heroine in Clara.
What was made the story great was the history behind the plantation. Let’s just say that Mia Sheridan seamlessly intertwines two stories into one. One is a love story that occurs in the past between John and Angelique and another that happens in the present between Jonah and his Clara. Each story is fantastic on its own but combined together? It becomes something indescribable.
Mia Sheridan never ceases to amaze me. I love how every one of her love stories is unique – they stay with you especially this one since it is based out of the intriguing city of New Orleans.
If “The Wish Collector” is any indication of just how amazing reading will be in 2019 then I am certain that I am in for a wonderful year!
