Almost a year after the death of his wife, former high-tech executive Ian finds a letter that will change his life. It contains Kate's final wish-a plea for him to take their ten-year-old daughter, Mattie, on a trip across Asia, through the countries they had always planned to visit. Eager to honor the woman they loved, Ian and Mattie embark on an epic journey, leaving notes to Kate in "wishing trees" along the way, and encountering miracles large and small. And as they begin to find their way back to each other, they discover that healing is possible and love endures-lessons that Kate hoped to show them all along...

The Wishing Trees was a beautiful book to read. It made me cry with every turn of the page. I didn't give the book a five because the ending was predictable. It felt as if the ending was a little rushed and the journeys that both the father and daughter had made were shortchanged.
