Wish Sandwich is a 2020 novel by Jerry B. Bowden. The African-American title character retells adventures ranging from growing up in a Children's Home in the Bronx, to escaping the violent streets of Brooklyn, to entering a war zone in Vietnam, to singing on stage with The Temptations.
Overcoming poverty, violence, and abandonment, to experiencing enlightenment through higher education, and embracing true love, this novel is a non-stop adventure that will touch your heart and keep you guessing, while reinforcing the importance of keeping an open mind and choosing to fight for your dreams.
The author reminds us that mistakes happen in life, but they do not define who we are. The consequences from our mistakes can slow us down, but not suppress us from achieving greatness. It's a matter of mindset.
Resilience comes from deep within oneself, and Jerry B. Bowden shows us time and time again, how perseverance and determination will ultimately lead you closer to your goals. So, rather than turning back at roadblocks, find new ways to get around them, or take a detour. Don't lose sight of where you are going. The end result will be glorious and well worth the fight.
Life is like a wish sandwich. You are given a beginning and an end slice of life. What you choose to put into your life's sandwich is entirely up to you.
