The Tides of Wishing Rock (a novel with recipes) is the third book in the Wishing Rock series. Following the award-winning Letters from Wishing Rock and The Wishing Rock Theory of Life, Pam Stucky's latest novel, The Tides of Wishing Rock (a novel with recipes) completes the much-beloved Wishing Rock series. Ruby, Ed, Alexandra, Gran, Erin, Millie, Pip, and all the rest are back in this third novel set in Wishing Rock, Washington, a tiny town in which everyone lives in the same building. Wit, wisdom, and recipes are once again highlighted in letters between the neighbors and their friends, chronicling the twists and turns of the characters' daily lives. Ruby's relationship with Ed continues to grow, but will those growing pains send her back into the arms of Jake, the town's young doctor-in-training? Erin needs a change of scenery and escapes to Hawaii for whale-watching, coconut cocktails, and sunrise runs, but will what she finds at the end of a long winding Maui road change her life? Ed and Alexandra both take on the complexities of family secrets and long-lost relations, while spry Gran decides to let her life take a new turn. Holidays at Wishing Rock provide the close-knit community opportunities for reflection and gratitude, and a spontaneous road trip on a visit to Ireland leads Ruby and Pip to a surprise encounter with the Northern Ireland police. Amidst it all, Millie declares a National Wishing Rock Day, which Alexandra and David enhance with the town's first annual Wishing Rock Olympics. At the core of this heartwarming novel are fun, frolic, family, and friends.
