Summary: (from goodreads) Campbell Cooper has never been in love. And if the doctors are right, she'll never have the chance. So when she's told she needs a miracle, her family moves 1,500 miles north to Promise, Maine--a place where amazing, unexplainable events are said to occur--like it or not. And when a mysterious envelope arrives, containing a list of things for Cam to do before she dies, she finally learns to believe--in love, in herself, and maybe even in miracles, as improbable as they may seem.
Review: I was really excited when I found out I had won a copy of this book, and was even more excited when it finally arrived in my mailbox. I have been wanting to read this for a while and it definitely lived up to my expectations. I'm having a hard time putting my thoughts about this book into words. It was a really thoughtful book about hope, love and miracles. Promise was such a great setting. It was so vivid and imaginative it started to seem like a real place. I also really enjoyed the Disney aspect that was added in, the capital of love and miracles. This book made me cry in some parts and laughing in others. This deep and thoughtful story was told in a lighthearted way which made all the more of a great read. my favorite part of the book though, was Cam. She started out as such a cynical character, but as the story went on she changed so much. I feel like got to know her so well in only a few hundred pages. She was one of the most real and relate able characters I have come across in a long time. I absolutely loved this book. I hope there is more to come from Wendy Wunder.
