Reviews

"Inspiring . . . fascinating . . . Similar in style to Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love, The Wishing Year offers a thoughtful approach to the notion that we can create change simply by signifying our intent."--Sunday Oregonian

"Readers will enjoy watching Oxenhandler realize her dreams through diligence, hard work and a 'willing suspension of disbelief' in the captivating magic of wishing."--Publishers Weekly

"[Oxenhandler] mines her quotidian ups and downs during a twelve-month period with the exacting honesty and hopefulness of a Buddhist Anne Lamott. . . . [An] endearing combination of meticulous research and winsome enthusiasm."--Kirkus Reviews

"Recommended . . . joyful and humorous reading."--Library Journal
