In a town where wishing has been outlawed, an epic battle is brewing between two people who may have more in common than either of them would care to acknowledge, and the town of Wishful itself hangs in the balance! Hatred rage and bitterness have twisted Benedict Pine beyond recognition. He blames the world for the loss of his sight, and, with the help of his demonic mentor, he intends to destroy the one place that means the most to the people closest to him, the town of Wishful. Roger Pine is awakened to the danger facing Wishful in his dreams, long before he ever sets foot in the town, and he thinks he just might be the only who can stop Benedict. In a race against time, Roger must uncover long buried family secrets, restore the town's history and find a way to use the one power that just might stop destruction in its tracks, the power of the Wish!
