about this item
Set in the 1940s, WISH YOU WELL tells the story of 12-year-old Louisa May Cardinal's coming of age. Born and raised in the Big Apple, Louisa is sent to live with her grandmother in the Appalachians after her father is killed in a car accident. The Virginia mountain folk teach Louisa rustic values, but Baldacci throws some trademark elements of action and suspense into his homespun tale. When evil businessmen come around, looking to exploit the land for profit, high-speed car chases and a dramatic courtroom climax result.
In 1940, tragedy forces Lou, her little brother Oz, and their invalid mother to leave New York and move to the mountains of southwestern Virginia to live with their great-grandmother, Louisa Mae Cardinal, but a climatic courtroom battle could determine the fates of the entire family and all those who have been touched by them. Reprint.
