Fern Michaels has entertained millions of readers with her deeply-involving contemporary novels including "Celebration, Yesterday, " and her recent "New York Times" bestseller, "Finders Keepers." Now, she delivers her most exciting story yet: the breathtaking tale of a woman on the run who's given the chance for a whole new life...

What You Wish For

If her abusive husband hadn't tried to kill her and her beloved dog Lucie, Helen Ward might never have left her million-dollar home and run far away. Now Helen's changed her identity and moved across the country, hopeful that she can be safe, happy, maybe even loved. And when she meets college professor Sam Tolliver, she begins to believe fairytales do come true.

But even with love blossoming and her new online business venture taking off, Helen knows that the past is catching up with her. . .and her fear is growing. Wanting to flee, desperate to get away for good, she'll soon face the biggest decision of her life, a decision that will determine her future and her very identity.

"What You Wish For" is Fern Michaels' most compelling and emotionally authentic novel: one that pulls us right into the lives of her characters, letting us love, struggle, and triumph with them every moment of the way.
