My Review
A Wish on Gardenia Street is a novella set in Pinecraft Florida and Amish Mennonite Community, and our main character Mattie has just arrived as the book opened.

Mattie arrives to be in her friends wedding and to help her get things ready, but she has her own plans, and in her mind she has her life all planned out. Reality is different and she may just find out that what she wants is not what God has planned for her.
Come and enjoy another stay in this Plain Community, my mind keeps painting pictures of living here. We walk the streets and go to the shops, and we have a sewing frolic to make the necessary things for the wedding. Will Mattie get all that she wants, or will she end up going home?
I loved this quick read, only 112 pages, and being able to read in one sitting.
I received this book through Edelweiss and the Avon Inspire Impulse, and was not required to give a positive review.
