Please join us on Wednesday, November 8, 6:30PM as we welcome Viola Shipman to downtown Woodstock, to celebrate the launch of THE WISHING BRIDGE. Wade, writing as Viola Shipman, brings us a special novel perfect for the holiday season. This event will take place at the Woodstock Arts Theater, across from FoxTale Book Shoppe. The theater is located at 8534 Main St, Woodstock, GA 30188. There are TWO ticket options, one for a hand signed hardcover and one for a hand-signed trade paperback copy. The below is the PAPERBACK option. Yes, additional books can be purchased separately via our online store.
With unabashed winter charm, The Wishing Bridge sparkles with the humor and heart fans of Kristy Woodson Harvey, Nancy Thayer and Jenny Colgan love most.
Once the hottest mergers and acquisitions executive in the company, Henrietta Wegner can see the ambitious and impossibly young up-and-comers gunning for her job. When Henri's boss makes it clear she'll be starting the New Year unemployed unless she can close a big deal before the holidays, Henri impulsively tells him that she can convince her aging parents to sell Wegner's--their iconic Frankenmuth, Michigan, Christmas store--to a massive, soulless corporation. It's the kind of deal cool, corporate Henri has built her career on.
Home for the holidays has typically meant a perfunctory twenty-four-hour visit for Henri, then back to Detroit as fast as her car will drive her. So turning up at the Wegner's offices in early December raises some eyebrows: from her delighted, if puzzled, parents to her suspicious brother and curious childhood friends. But as Henri fields impatient texts from her boss while reconnecting with the magic of the store and warmth of her hometown, what sounded great in the boardroom begins to lose its luster in real life. She's running out of time to pull the trigger on what could be the greatest success of her career...or the most awkward family holiday of her life.
