Carey, Beth, and Pamela, savvy journalists who are nearing forty and still single, have succeeded at work but failed at romance. Worried that somewhere between hot leads and hot dates they missed their chance for children, they decide to take matters into their own hands-with a little help from a local sperm bank. What none of these three friends expected was that, by drawing on each other, their journey would take them along an altogether surprising route to happiness and family.

Reviewers praise THREE WISHES as a "Sisterhood of the Traveling Sperm" for women everywhere, andO, The Oprah Magazineheralded the book as a "Tome of the Brave."

Editorial Reviews

"That they actually make it, and find long-term relationships along the way, makes for a happy journey, but the power of this three-pronged narrative is the trio's candor regarding the compromises and complications that arise in the process of becoming mothers. Ironically, the anonymous vials of sperm never fulfill their intended purpose, but instead become a symbol of empowerment, giving each woman the green light to let go of bad relationships, find fulfilling new connections, and determine their own destinies. This personal, carefully-recounted tale will resonate with any career woman wondering if it's too late to have it all."-Publishers Weekly
