I can’t make you live longer. I can’t stop you from hurting. But I can give you one wish, as someone did for me.
It’s hard for Anne Wingate and her father to accept the doctors’ diagnosis: Anne is HIV positive. Seven years earlier, before blood screening was required, Anne received a transfusion to save her life, and the blood was tainted. Now Anne must deal with the inevitable progression of her condition. When an anonymous benefactor promises to grant a single wish with no strings attached, Anne decides to spend the summer on a ranch out west and live as normally as she possibly can. The summer seems even better than she dreamed, especially after she meets Morgan. But Anne hasn’t confided in Morgan about her condition, and when her health begins to deteriorate, she suddenly leaves the ranch.
Is there time for Anne and Morgan to meet again?
