Wish You Well Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Wish You Well

This story is all about Louisa May Cardinal, a precocious twelve-year-old girl living in the hectic New York City of 1940 with her acclaimed but sadly underpaid writer father, her loving mother, and younger brother Oz. For Lou, her family's financial struggles are invisible to her. She is a daughter who idolizes her father and is in love with the art of storytelling.

Then, in a single, terrifying moment, Lou's life is changed forever, and she and Oz are on a train rolling away from New York and down into the mountains of Virginia. There, Lou's mother will begin a long, slow struggle between life and death. Lou and Oz will be raised by their remarkable great grandmother, Louisa, Lou's namesake.
