After years of playing imaginary second fiddle to Isabella Carson, alter-ego Desdemona decides she's had it! No longer satisfied with being the strong, creative side of Izzy's personality, Desdemona longs to live out Izzy's dream of becoming an artist. A chance encounter with a fallen star on a beach fulfills Desdemona's wish to physically become a woman all her own, and she flees Isabella's decision to wed her college beau in order to become a wildly successful artist in the Key West arts scene.
Over ten years' time, Desdemona and Isabella remain connected, each through the dreams of the other's life; Izzy revels in her dreams of an exciting, bohemian artist's life in the Keys while Desdemona's torturous nightmares of marital mediocrity drive her to paint late at night to avoid sleep. A personal crisis in each woman's life draws Isabella and Desdemona inexorably home to Collinsville, where chasing Izzy's childhood dream of joining the volunteer fire department becomes a priority for Desdemona as she empowers the women around her and rekindles a flame from their past that could change Izzy's life forever.
Come on, girls, admit it - your house is a wreck, you've just put the kids back in bed for the third time, and you've still got oatmeal on your sleeve from breakfast. You can barely remember your own name, let alone the grand dreams you once had for your own life. You pour your entire self into the daily task of raising your family, to the point where there's absolutely nothing left for you at the end of the day. And your creative mojo? Forget it - it flew the coop long ago...
We all have a side of us that is our inner rebel wild-child. But what happens when the spark inside us that fuels our creative fire disappears? First Wish explores this scenario through the life of Isabella Carson and her creative alter-ego, Desdemona.
Originally written as a cautionary tale for my daughter on how not to lose sight of her dreams as she grew into a young woman, First Wish quickly took on a life of its own. From small town life to the Key West arts scene to the local volunteer fire department, Isabella discovers through Desdemona's example that it's never too late to live out your dreams.
