This book showed how hard it was back in Ireland many years ago when Emma makes a wish with the Ruby ring. Emma has heard that she is self center and doesn't care about anyone but herself and when she starts to look at her life she finds that it is true. In this story she learnes how happy you can become when thinking of others. I really liked this story and I can wait to add it in my library!
