A Wish For Us
By Tillie Cole
Release Date: June 11, 2018
From the author who brought you A Thousand Boy Kisses comes the new emotional novel,
A Wish For Us.
A story of music. A story of healing. A story of love conquering all.
Nineteen-year-old Cromwell Dean is the rising star of electronic dance music. Thousands of people adore him. But no one knows him. No one sees the color of his heart.
Until the girl in the purple dress. She sees through the walls he has built to the empty darkness within.
When Cromwell leaves behind the gray skies of England to study music in the South Carolina heat, the last thing he expects is to see her again. And he certainly doesn’t expect that she’ll stay in his head like a song on repeat.
Bonnie Farraday lives for music. She lets every note into her heart, and she doesn’t understand how someone as talented as Cromwell can avoid doing the same. He’s hiding from his past, and she knows it. She tries to stay away from him, but something keeps calling her back.
Bonnie is the burst of color in Cromwell’s darkness. He’s the beat that makes her heart skip.
But when a shadow falls over Bonnie, it’s up to Cromwell to be her light, in the only way he knows how. He must help her find the lost song in her fragile heart. He must keep her strong with a symphony only he can compose.
A symphony of hope.
A symphony of love.
A symphony of them.

Warning: This book does have emotional triggers which may affect readers. Mental health issues and suicide issues are addressed in this novel.
A Wish For Us by Tillie Cole will tear at the heart strings. It is more than a love story. It is a life story where three young people’s lives collide. This emotional mature young adult / new adult novel deals with more than emotional issues caused by life circumstances but also deals with terminal health issues, mental illness, and depression. There are emotional triggers that were very hard to read but also brings awareness for all the characters involved. Physical Illness and mental health issues affect more than the individual who suffers but also affects those their families, friends, and life associations.
The moment I started reading A Wish For Us, I was hooked. I could not put this book down until I finished the story. Along the way I experienced every human emotion possible. My heart ached for all three characters who were experiencing different life altering situations that would change their lives forever. For Bonnie it was facing her mortality. For Cromwell it was facing his past in order to accept his gifts in life. For Easton it was trying to cope with daily life and not knowing how to reach out and get the right kind of treatment for his mental health illness. Along the way their lives collided, the results were love, friendship, and ultimate sacrifice.
I have to give Tillie Cole 5 STARS for handling such delicate and devastating subject matter with great care and sensitivity. She didn’t back down or sugar coat any of the issues each character was dealing with. She choose to showcase the harsh truth and realities which made their stories more authentic and real. Not to mention the ultimate love story that validated all three of their lives.
A Wish For Us by Tillie Cole is a fantastic validation of life.
