For generations, the Stone family have been making wishes on the old willow tree in their garden. And this year they’re wishing harder than ever…

Benedict and Estelle thought they’d found their happy ending. But, unable to have the children they’ve longed for, their marriage has hit the rocks. And as their tenth anniversary approaches, Estelle decides it’s time to move out. Devastated but unwilling to accept defeat, Benedict vows to win her back – he just doesn’t know how.

The unexpected – and uninvited – arrival of his estranged sixteen-year-old niece is the last thing he needs. But when a decades-old secret is brought to light, Benedict and Estelle realise they’re not the only ones in need of a second chance. And that maybe the family they wished for has been there all along…

I wasn't too sure what to think as I started reading this book. Benedict initially was a tricky character to get to know properly.

However it didn't take long and for Gemma's arrival to liven everything up and make this into a very a interesting story,

I loved all the different meanings of the gemstones, and how Ben and Gemma used them to help people in the little village. 

I loved the idea of the Stone willow tree and generally found this to be a very gentle but delightful story to read.

I ended up really liking Ben as he developed and changed during the book, and Gemma was a bit of an enigma too. 

A fabulous book from an author I am growing to like more and more with each release.

Thank you to Netgalley and HQ for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
