Do you ever wish your dream could come true? Or that you could have just one more moment with a deceased love one to tell them how much they meant to you? If you do, then this is an absolutely FANTABULOUS book just for you. This author is like no other author, and God truly uses her to share happiness in the lives of others. I'm still, as I sit here sharing my thoughts on this book, in awe of completely incredible this book is.

In this "Make a Wish" book, Marlayne Giron creates short stories from peoples wishes. These stories play out like they would if it really happened. Marlayne, at the beginning of each "wish"/chapter tells a little bit about the person and their wish, and then jumps into the wish fulfillment story that stars that wish maker. Each wish is unique, some about dreams and hopes of marrying prince charmings or knights in shining armors, some about getting that one more moment with a loved one, and some of them about getting one more chance to walk again. No matter what they are about, though, each have something in common with the one before it: they are all gifts from God. They are, simply put: beautiful. Of course, while many while make you smile, you must have LOTS of Kleenex available, for you will cry rivers after reading some (or, in my case, ALL) of them.

If there was any way possible, I would give this book 5 TRILLION stars instead of simply 5. Yes, it will remind you a lot of the "Make A Wish Foundation", but it's beautiful just like that. This book of wish fulfillments isn't just for kids, like the MAW Foundation....it's for ALL of God's wonderful children, both young and old. So, whether you have a wish or not, I HIGHLY recommend this book to every one. You will fall in love with the book and it's author.

I can't say enough about someone who cares so much about other people like this author does, she wants to fill all of these wishes and she does such a wonderful job writing them that the readers sit and read them over and over. A very good read in todays world where we all want something better in life. I loved everyone of the stories in this book. I can't wait for book number two to come out! I will be buying a copy for sure!

Make A Wish is a collection of stories specifically written for people the author has encountered in her life. Each person has a specific need or desire that would improve and enhance his or her life. These stories are written with each individual's life story in mind, and represent an experience that would enhance the life of that particular person. The author's purpose is to fulfill a "wish" for each of these individuals that is specific to that person's situation. Many of these narratives are intense, impassioned and inspiring.

Marlayne Giron has written her "wish" stories with a great deal of compassion and insight into the lives of those she has gifted with her stories. Many of these "wish" stories are creative and detailed, and written with a deep-seated love for those she has touched through her writing. The recipients of these fictional writings have been emotionally impacted beyond their dreams, and the peace and pleasure of these "wish" tales are very poignant.

Imagine a quadriplegic man walking again, experiencing sensation in his legs and running! It is the fondest wish of a man confined to a wheel chair since the age of fourteen, so his friend, Marlayne writes a story that fulfills his wish. She writes a story where he is the main character and can walk!

Another one of the stories, sees a young J.R.R. Tolkien fan become an "elf" and live amongst the fantasy characters that Tolkien created in his Lord of the Rings books. A woman, mourning the sudden and inexplicable loss of her daughter, experiences one last memory-making afternoon with her; another woman battling cancer and fearful of dying is visited by other dear family members who have come back to her from heaven to encourage and to calm her fears. A family that loves watching the T.V. show "Extreme Home Makeovers" get their wish to get a brand new home. An infertile young couple get to experience the joy of holding their own child...

Every story comes to life with vibrant detail and throughout the telling, the author fulfills the wish of every person and gives all glory to God in the process.

This is a brilliant concept, (using fiction to bless individuals in such a poignant and profound manner) and the story lines have such limitless potential! Encouraging in every way, this book is a beautiful tribute to each individual the author blesses with a "wish".
I absolutely loved this book!

I wasn't sure what I would think about this book as I don't usually read short stories. However this book turned out to be exceptional and far above my expectations. Each chapter tells you a little bit about a real life person and then has short story based on a wish they have. The real life stories are emotional but the fiction stories based upon them are real tear jerkers. Marlayne Giron's writing brings the stories to life and I actually felt like they were happening. I found myself crying several times, which at one point was a bit embarresing as I was in a hospital waiting room. However, do not get the idea this is a sad book, these were tears of joy and happiness. The characters faith in God shines through in every page, and a few times I felt my faith being strengthened. I would highly recommend this book.

I was given a copy of this book for review purposes, but this in no way coloured my review. I was not asked to provide a positive review and my review reflects my true feelings based on having read it.
