    1 thought on “The Wishing Ring Man”

    1. This is a "spin-off" to "The Rose-Garden Husband" -- it is not about Phyllis but she plays a lovely supporting role and it was so nice to see her again! But this story belongs to Joy Havenith and I really loved the beginning. There's a bit of Rapunzel about it, because Joy is kept pretty well tucked away by her eccentric poet-genius grandfather and diminutive grandmother -- she is regarded as a muse rather than a real girl. She is intelligent but also quite naive though she is of an age when mos [...]

    2. There are a few books like this that I've enjoyed very much, and I knew there had to be more somewhere! I'm glad to have found this one. It is sort of a sequel to The Rose-Garden Husband, that is to say, Phyllis & Allan play a pretty big part in it, though not the starring roles. This book is about their friend who was introduced in The Rose-Garden Husband: Dr. John Hewitt. The new character is Joy Havenith, a 19-year-old girl who lives with her grandparents and has been extremely sheltered [...]

    3. I was in the mood for something light and innocent, so picked up this story by Margaret Widdemer, a favorite author of mine. I was so surprised and pleased to find that it includes my favorites from "Rose-Garden Husband", Allan and Phyllis Harrington, as major characters. It has delightful nods to fairy-tale lore along the way to young Joy Havenith coming into her true womanhood.It is difficult to review this without giving away much of the story, but I do love the hero, and you will be sure to [...]

    4. This story started a little strangely, with Joy living with her grandparents and always being dressed in rather strange, flowing clothes as part of her grandfather's "muse", as he is a famous poet. Still, Widdemer manages to make this feel quite believable, and while everything that unfolds is a bit impractical, I lapped up every word. Once Joy enters her fake engagement, the story really gets going. I loved seeing Phyllis and Allan from 'The Rose-Garden Husband' so happily married in this book, [...]

    5. Not as good as the Rose-Garden Husband but still good fun. The heroine does seem to be excessively childish for her age.

    6. Perhaps this book isn't great lit. But Margaret Widdermer was a Pulitzer Prize winning poet so she isn't all bad.Joy is the heroine and we meet her as a rebellious( not really by our standards, she does nothing actually wrong) 19 year old who is sick of being on display at the whim of her poet Grandfather. Joy meets a young man who encourages her to think that everything will turn out right.Everything seems to be turning out great. She meets the Harringtons( of The Rose Garden Husband) and they [...]

    7. Not as strong as the prequel, "The Rose-Garden Husband," but still a lovely book. The main characters are perhaps not quite as strong and the relationship between them not quite as beautiful. I especially enjoyed seeing Allen and Phyllis' relationship several years later. I also enjoyed how it portrayed love and those who love each other. Love was shown to be beautiful and kind. And those that love each other belong to each other, not one owning and controlling the other, but a commitment by eac [...]

    8. I love books like this. The plot is somewhat predictable but I didn't mind. Joy is simply adorable, and John is great character as well. Phyllis and Allan of The Rose-Garden Husband are supporting characters. At one point, they all put on an amateur performance of Iolanthe, which made me very happy.Joy's poet grandfather is a satiric character, which is interesting considering Margaret Widdemer was a Pulitzer Prize-winning poet herself.
