It's never too late to chase a love you lost...

It has been fifty years since Elizabeth fell in love with Tom, and just as many since she last saw him. She is still in love with him, and is sure he still loves her too, thanks to the small blue crocus delivered to her doorstep every year in line with a promise he once made. She has kept every little note bound to those flowers, each written as a wish for the life they could have shared.

But when on the 50th anniversary the blue flower fails to arrive, she fears something has happened to the love of her life. For the first time in almost half a century, she endeavours to find out what has happened to Tom; to find out whether the love they once shared can possibly be rekindled?

Faced with the knowledge that they have only a little time left, she vows to fulfil as many of his wishes as she can. But Elizabeth is scared that her efforts risk uncovering the shameful secret she has been keeping her whole life... Can she continue to hide the truth, or will she have the courage to finally make their dreams come true?

MEDIA REVIEWS

Michelle's writing is so beautiful and so real - particularly the tender and moving scenes about Tom's illness which were so heartfelt and genuine. Witnessing Tom and Elisabeth's relationship develop and deepen beyond 'first love' was wonderful and I really felt like I knew the characters towards the end. It really gave me pause for thought about how important it is to relish every moment and not let any opportunities or burgeoning relationships pass you by. I will definitely be recommending the book to everyone I know! - Sarah Pearse, author of THE SANATORIUM

Little Wishes is a stunningly-written journey of love and loss. A brilliant concept, a glorious setting, and a cast of characters you can't help rally around. So many beautiful descriptions. So many moving moments. So many dabs of my eyes with a tissue. I absolutely adored it. - Helly Acton, author of THE SHELF

This bittersweet story of a first love that lasted a lifetime transported me to the wild and beautiful Cornish coast. The tangled web of secrets and lies keeps the pages turning, while the poignancy of Tom and Elizabeth's story will tug at your heartstrings. - Fiona Valpy

A beautiful, heartfelt romance. A sweeping tale of love, life and tragedy - Holly Martin
