Do we control our own destiny - or might it be determined by fate,
coincidence, luck...or even magic?
Ruth, an amateur psychic with a husband who smokes cannabis for breakfast, is
haunted by a tragic event from her teenage years which, she suspects, was the
result of a wish she made on an allegedly enchanted stone. Too embarrassed to
admit her fears, she keeps her secret to herself for twenty-five years.
Petra is the perennial singleton amongst her friends, unable, she thinks, to
fall in love. She comes across the stone at a Psychic Fair and makes a wish,
just for fun. As the wish begins to come true she wishes she had chosen her
words with more care.
Spoilt, weight-obsessed Sarah wants nothing more than to be "size zero". As
her life spirals downwards into the seedy world of drug abuse and addiction, she
remembers the day at the Psychic Fair when she wished for her heart's desire.
When Ruth learns of the fates of Petra and Sarah she is forced to confront her
guilt and discover the truth about the Wishing Stone...
Terry Tyler's debut novel is a quirky contemporary drama exploring the themes
of family affairs, infidelity and guilt, incorporating jealousy, drug abuse and the
obsession of a Facebook stalker, against a backdrop of secrets and superstition.
