In the same genre as THE WEDDING DRESS and WITH THIS RING, author Marian Wells brings history and fiction together in a powerful novel of light and darkness, truth and falsehood, good and evil.
THE WISHING STAR
Jenny, living in the frontier districts of New York and Ohio in the early 1800's, is a bright and unusually inquisitive young girl. Though surrounded by poverty, enduring abuse by a drunken father, and in spite of limited schooling and spiritual guidance, curious and quick-minded Jenny reaches out for something different.
The window out of her restricted life is the world of books. The green-covered one, her father's forbidden book, holds an overwhelming fascination for her.
WILL JENNY FIND TRUTH, OR IS SHE ON A DANGEROUS ROAD WITH NO END IN SIGHT?
