Ilana's Wish by Annette Lyon-book review. Book #8 Newport Ladies Book Club novel

I received a copy of Ilana's Wish in exchange for a blog book review. All opinions are my own.

Ilana's Wish is book 8 of the Newport Ladies Book Club novel series, or can be read as a stand alone book.
You can read more about the Newport Ladies Book Club series here:

I have read all 8 books of the series now over the last 2-2.5 years and have really enjoyed them! They are all great clean womens fiction books. They can be read alone in different order and still make sense, or read in order of release date like I did.

Ilana is a professional woman who appears to have a great life. She ends up having 2 major surgeries within a month of each other and ends up dealing with alot of emotional and physical pain from them. This book is not a "happy feel good" book, but it DOES have a good ending and is worth reading. Life is hard and alot of people deal with addictions, disappointments and discouragements every day-its a fact of life. How you deal with it is up to you. I like that this book ties into Shannon's and Tori's stories, both of which I read so some of the book scenes were familiar. This book will give you hope.

Book Description from

 April 1, 2014
On the surface, Ilana Goldstein leads an enviable life: a thriving career and a happy marriage to a handsome doctor. All that’s missing is a baby, an emptiness that will surely be filled with time . . . Then, in an instant, her life falls apart. Now, beneath Ilana’s once flawless exterior hides a dark secret that may destroy the woman who seemed to have it all. Following a rapid succession of crushing trials, Ilana turns to prescription medications to take the edge off her agony—both the ache of her body and the anguish of her soul. But when her desperation to dull the pain leads to the downward spiral of addiction, her friends in the Newport Ladies Book Club must do whatever it takes to save one of their own. Will Ilana’s devastating losses bring about her own self-destruction, or will the loving determination of friends and family lend her the strength to overcome?

The final and 9th book, Tying the Knot, is a thank-you to all of our readers who have asked "What happens next?"
