Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty


Book Description:

Some things can’t be undone . . . One fateful night three women reveal secrets that will change things for ever. From the bestselling author of the EMMY- and GOLDEN GLOBE-WINNING HBO series Big Little Lies.

Are the bonds of sisterhood strong enough to withstand some real home truths?

Sensible Lyn is struggling to balance being a mother, wife and businesswoman without losing her mind. Cat, whose perfect marriage is the envy of all her friends, never suspects that her husband has been hiding a secret that will tear her life apart. Directionless Gemma changes jobs and boyfriends every few months and has just met a new man who could be the one to unlock her hidden past.

Through everything, the bonds of the sisters are strong enough to withstand whatever life throws at them. That is until the night of their thirty-fourth birthday dinner, when home truths are revealed and things are said that can’t be taken back . . .

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book. Meet Cat, Lyn and Gemma who are triplets. My head went into overdrive to what it must have been like for the sisters growing up with siblings that are the same age. Also how as a parent do you cope with three babies! When we first meet them though they are celebrating their thirty fourth birthday. The story does flick to the glimpses of when the women are children but it mainly concentrates to the run up to present day.

All the sisters are quite different in personalities. All going through different things in their own lives. Cat was the one that stood out the most for me. I think because she is quite a tough cookie and has the most to deal with out of the sisters. Even though at times she probably isn’t that likable, I really had a soft spot for her.

There is a real sense of family in this book. Not just with siblings but with their parents also. One character I really loved was the nana. What a fabulous character. She brings a lot of humor and even though the rest of the family get frustrated with her, they love her dearly.

Three Wishes is a wonderful family drama of which I got totally wrapped into. Whilst everything isn’t plain sailing for this family and they have their share of disagreements, I think it reminds us that no matter what, we only get one family and whilst they may not be perfect, they are there to be treasured. A delightful and entertaining read.

Three Wishes is available to purchase from Amazon. (Please note that link used is an affiliate link).
