When a strapping young Jack MacBride arrives in Finch to wrap up his late uncle's affairs, heads turn in the sleepy English village. But when Lori volunteers to help Jack clear out his uncle's overgrown garden, they discover something even more shocking than a stranger turning up in Finch. After Lori laughingly tosses a coin into the garden's old well and makes a wish, she is baffled to find that the wish seems to have come true. Word spreads, and the villagers turn out in droves to make wishes of their own. But as they soon learn, one person's wish is another person's worst nightmare. As more and more wishes come true, Lori resolves to find out what's really going on with Aunt Dimity's otherworldly help.

It was tiresome to keep hearing Lori's thoughts on everyone. She has lost the humility and kindness she had in the earlier books. Her character acts as if only she and Bill are the few intelligent and sensible people in Finch and all of the other characters are silly and immature.
1. Use a different narrator. 2. Make Lori less whiny and smug.
The narrator read the words so slowly, that one would think we were kindergarten students. I heard the story at 1.5 speed and it was still difficult to enjoy. Her accents were all wrong and many sounded cartoonish. I will read the next book on my own if the same narrator does the next one.
Yes, it was poignant when we learned about the wishing well's evolution.

The story was ok but ...
the accents were not done well and really took away from the story.
