Louise wishes she could be slim, pretty, and popular. So she can�t believe it when it seems her wish is coming true. If only it didn't all cost so much . . .

Dara wishes she could go back in time, and change everything. But she's married now, and nothing can change that. Can it?

Rosie wishes she knew how to make her children happy. Even though they're both grown up with their own lives, they seem to need her more than ever.

Three very different women, about to make a journey that will change their lives forever. You should be careful what you wish for . . .

An above average look at the lives of three women around a train crash. Kept me up wanting to know what happens next. The three women are of different ages and their lives intersect throughout the prelude to the crash, it's what they do with the aftermath that's the most interesting part of the story. The characters come across as real and you also can see how the decisions that they have to make are real and the thoughts that they go through reflect reality.

I didn't for one minute expect to be finishing this book with as much enthusiasm as I have. There were times when the author went a bit over the top talking about the characters' situations. There are only so many times when you can ponder a choice in two or three paragraphs and this is what prevented it getting a 5/5 for me. Had this happened less then it would've been a 5/5.Great story line with the characters all being very different. Each chapter is a different character and although there were one or two times where I had to consider who I was reading about I found this fine to follow. The beginning of the book was a touch dull whilst the characters were being introduced but otherwise it was a straightforward read that I found I wanted to keep going to get to know how their situations were resolved.
