A Review of One Wish by Maria Duffy

Becky Greene is delighted with life, she has a great job, a gorgeous daughter and a lovely terrace house. But when Lilly arrives home from school one day asking why she doesn't have a Daddy, Becky is questioning if she has made the right decisions in the past by not telling Lilly's father about the existence of his child.

After years of thinking that she would be much better off without him, Becky decideds to go on a search for Lilly's father. We follow Becky around Dublin City as she searches for clues as to where she can find Dennis, Lilly's father. When she finally finds him, she is shocked to find that he isn't the same man he used to be.

We find out that Dennis is homeless very early on in the book. When Becky realises that this man is the father of her daughter, she wants to run a mile for him, after all what could a homeless man have to offer to a four year old little girl. But as Becky gets to know Dennis a bit better, she realises that the downturm of the economy has changed this man for the better. We see Becky and Dennis get to know each other better, even if he does think that her name is Alice. The more she gets to know him the more she thinks that he should know about his daughters existence. After a vicious attack on Dennis, Beckydecides to tell him that he is the father of Lilly. Which then makes Dennis reevaulatehis life!

This book is such a heart warming tale which touches on many real life points, such as homelessness and infertility. Maria has a way of making this a very delicate story. I am a big fan of Maria's books and this was no exception. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book and I read it at record speed, it was just unputdownable. I would highly recommend it! It's definetly a must read!!!
