Carey, Beth, and Pamela, savvy journalists who are nearing forty and still single, have succeeded at work but failed at romance. Worried that somewhere between hot leads and hot dates they missed their chance for children, they decide to take matters into their own hands-with a little help from a local sperm bank. What ne of these three friends expected was that, by drawing on each other, their journey would take them along an altogether surprising route to happiness and family. Reviewers praise THREE WISHES as a Sisterhood of the Traveling Sperm for women everywhere, and O, The Oprah Magazine heralded the book as a Tome of the Brave. With three distinct voices joining to create one powerful testament to friendship and unexpected love, THREE WISHES is a deeply touching story of real-life magic.
