I don't think I've read anything as wonderful as this book in a long, long time! This tale of four friends who lose touch over time but are brought together sixty-five years later will touch your heart and bring tears to your eyes. Brendan, a TV news reporter, comes upon a blue bottle enclosed with the handwritten dreams of four young girls following the 1929 Stock Market Crash. Brendan is looking for something more in her life, and she decides to find out what happened to the women. What Brendan finds is more than a story, though, when she discovers that God held these women up during their lives and that God would be there for her also. What a wonderful story! I can't recommend it enough...

This is a story about four women who placed their dreams in a "blue bottle" in 1929. The bottle was found in 1994. Reporter Brendan Delaney follows up on the four women and also finds her own dream in the process. This is a very uplifting story.

Four friends gather in a dusty, cold attic and place their dreams for the future on little pieces of paper which they place in a blue bottle shaped like a log cabin. Years later, during the demoltion of this house, the bottle comes into the hands of a reporter. She sees the story of a lifetime and decides to search out these women and see if their wishes cames true. This is my first read by this author and I have already order two more. Loved it.

I enjoyed reading this. It was a pleasant book-light reading. Some times the religious aspects got a little heavy, but I did not know that it was a Christian-oriented book before I started reading it.

This is one of my favorite books of all I have read. Such a good story
of high school girls writing about what they plan to do with their lives when they are out of school. They write it on paper and put it in a bottle and leave it in the attic of one girl. It is forgotten for years and when
the house is torn down, the bottle is found and a reporter decides to try and find these gals who would be old ladies by now. Good book!!!
