Sometimes you get more than you wish for . . .
. . . .and other times wishes come true because you make it so.
The wishing ring is one of those fun fairy tales (literally) that begins with a good deed and ends with hard work. It might even have a happily ever after. This is a fun story that might contain a lesson or two about sharing, greed, and how to find true happiness. I like it because it is a bite-sized story. You can get to it and through it all in under an hour, but still get a lot from it. If Vernon were a chef I'd call this an Amuse-bouche ofa tale. Tasty, tantalizing, and fun but just a nibble. This is good way to get introduced to Vernon's other works; which I heartedly recommend you to do. ASAP.
Moore narrates the story well, although I have to say I did snigger at Ramsey's wife's voice. Still, he made it feel like you were sitting around a campfire and listening back when folktales and fairy tales carries some weight. He made it more fun. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Great short story!
This was a great story and reminded me of the tales the Seanchaí tell. I'm Irish, so this reminds me of the old stories you'd hear from the Irish storytellers. It transported me back to a pub I went to that had a Seanchaí one night, and I loved it!!!
The basic premise is that there is a young farmer, a wishing ring, and a fairy named Queen Maab. You know accepting anything from the Fae folk will come with problems, so when a young farmer accepts the ring, I knew something would happen. But even so, I was surprised with what the author did!!
There isn't much I can say about the plot because it's so short and I'll ruin it, so all I'll say is that is was well written and the author managed to pack a lot into such a short read. I even found myself becoming invested in the farmer and his wife.
In all, a well written tale and I would love to see more short snippets like this. Highly recommend.
I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

I loved this book
Not my usual listen, but I'm really pleased I gave it a chance
A typical fairy tale with a happy ending, that proves you make your own luck, and what you achieve in life, is achieved through the effort you put in
