Three Wishes

Zara Ruiz is a normal California girl on the verge of graduating from high school and thinking about her dawning future. But when dusk brings a shattering loss—and she discovers a priceless object in the shallows of a tide pool—she is thrust a hundred-and-eighty years into the past. There she meets handsome ranchero Javier de la Ventura—who has big dreams and secret sorrows—along with his enchanting family, in a land that is at once familiar, and yet utterly foreign.
Between cattle rustlers, pirates and a growing call for statehood, it is not a peaceful time to be a Mexican settler in young Alta California. But Zara must decide if she’s discovered what she longs for most in the past, or if her heart’s THREE WISHES can only be found in the present.


I honestly don’t know what to say. This book was just so good!! I couldn’t put it down. Since I was on vacation and I had a long drive, it was a perfect time to read this book!! Lisa Tawn Bergren does it once again! It captivated me from the first page to the last page!
I also don’t know if this is all of the editions of this book, but there are a few chapters in the next book, Four Winds. That got me even more excited.
Anyway, back to Three Wishes! There were crying parts, laughing parts, sighing parts, and everything in between. That is totally my kind of book! I fell in love with Javier and the rest of the characters immediately. The storyline and plot was quite awesome. I really liked how this series, River of Time: California, is set in old California a little before the forty-niners. I mean, there was nothing missing!

So I am happy to say that I would give this book 5 bright stars!!
