Wishing for the Impossible and Expecting the Possbile

What happens when you have a wish for your child?  It’s not about a career, it’s about some of the simple things in life, like playing catch.  It doesn’t sound like it should be difficult, and that’s all James McConnell wanted.  It was his Wish to play catch with his son, Aaron in their backyard. 

In the book, Wish: An Impossible Dream.  An Extraordinary Journey, Jake Smith has written a book which will grab you and pull you along from beginning to end.  Aaron has struggled with cancer, James gave up a baseball career to start a family, and now coaches baseball.  He wants to play catch with his son, but Aaron’s cancer has returned and Smith pulls us along on the journey. 

As a sports dad, who has coached my own sons and other boys in various sports, I could sense the anguish and decisions which needed to be made by Aaron’s parents.  Choices had to be made, yet, the parents were considering their dreams, as well as Aaron’s dreams.

This was an very good book, easy to read and if you like sports, having your heart tugged a little here and there.  And enjoy reading a wholesome book, then I would highly recommend Wish.

I received this book for free from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are my own.
