about

Please, she thought to the stone, let there be a best friend for me in that boat. Let it be so, and I’ll set you free, and toss you back with the tides where you belong…

If Dot wishes hard enough on her special stone, maybe the world will slow down and be a little less topsy-turvy. When Dot tossed her wish into the sea, hoping for a friend her age, the stone brought her Sara. And when the girls worried for the health of Sara’s mother, it made her healthy, and brought Sara her precious Pearl.

It’s 1961, and Dot is teetering between childhood and adolescence. At the same time, her rustic world is catching up with the modern towns in the rest of Canada, and Dot isn’t sure how she feels about that. Dot enjoys having both a winter and summer home, and knowing every face in three villages. If more changes come, will that mean more people and more noise will come with them?

The Wishing Stone & Other Myths, Learned on Gull Cliff Island will take both children and adults back in time through eleven-year-old Dot, a traditional girl coping with her father’s dream of becoming a boat-builder and the realization that Mum and Dad are people with thoughts, emotions, and secrets apart from the family. Alongside her adventurous best friend, Sara, Dot must make ready for the future, whether it be on Gull Cliff, in Aylmer Sound, or someplace out of her father’s dream.

Like Little House on the Prairie, or Anne of Green Gables, The Wishing Stone & Other Myths Learned on Gull Cliff Island will take readers to a time and place where big dreams didn’t mean finding fame, but listening to the heart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Wishing Stone and Other Myths I have always enjoyed reading books about the coast and its way of life; this book is no exception! I started reading it and could not put it down. After living in Harrington and Chevery for almost 7 years, I had a few chuckles about some of the words and slang used. It brought back some great memories! Jessica did a wonderful job and I laughed and cried as I read this book. Great job Jessica and I look forward to reading all the rest of your books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Wishing Stone and Other Myths Just bought this book on my Kobo this morning, and finished reading it this afternoon! It's a wonderful book that will have you laughing and crying! The author is a young lady, originally from Chevery, and she really has a way with words that will make you feel like you are living in the story. One of the best reads I've had in a long time....and I read A LOT!
