What would you do if your whole world came crashing down?

Broken promises of love. Deceits of life. Safiya is deep in despair and nearing self-destruction. But a chance opportunity to escape suicidal misery beckons her.

Millions said ‘it is the land of wishes’. Mecca - Saudi Arabia. Millions said ‘it is a life changing journey’. Hajj - the pilgrimage.

England to Arabia. Thrown into garments resembling a death shroud she embarks on the Hajj and enters the spellbinding world of ancient Islamic practices
To save herself. Alongside three million foreign and unpredictable pilgrims she makes her weeping wish in the celestial palace of Mecca.

She camps with Ethiopian peasants and Arab Kings, faces the supernatural in the deserts and catches a spine-chilling glimpse of the end of the world.

She uncovers love for a man she has never met and hatred for a hidden enemy. She risks her life for a fleeting obsession and steps into a perilous ritual where others had been killed.

But will her wish come true? Or will it end badly?

Three Thousand Miles for a Wish is a deeply moving, mystical and powerful story of a young woman’s real-life quest for happiness.

It captures the soul with remarkable potency as it takes the reader, in a way never done before, on ‘the greatest trip on earth.

Reviews from Amazon:
Probably the most amazing book I have ever read! I don't read a lot but this book soon changed that, I found myself rearranging my life just to get through to the end. Highly recommended to all, regardless of your religion.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a well-written real story from a gifted author. Her writing is very accessible and the best thing, for me, is that she's naturally very funny.

Her observations on life and culture give a warmth, realness and point of reference to all kinds of themes and experiences that are pretty scary, immense and life-changing. At the same time, I learnt about Islam and the Hajj pilgrimage - an unexpected bonus. 

Also, it was very refreshing to get a different perspective on Islam and Muslims and Asian culture, outside of the stereotypes that few Muslims can actually relate to. That said, the themes and experiences are completely universal, so ultimately, I think that absolutely anyone and everyone could read this book and take something positive from it. 

Whether it's boredom with the mundane 9-5 of your job, or a difficult relationship, or the way you treat your parents, the book contains a wealth of experience, insight and hope (no matter what situation you are in). 

The personal journey and the physical journey are connected well, so you get a good mix of personality and emotion, with some real descriptions of the environment the author finds herself in. The book is full of hope, too. Yes, there's despair and difficulty, but it's great to see how the author takes on the physical and emotional challenges. You want her to succeed and be happy.
I am a Jewish - bordering on atheist - yet found great similarities in this wonderful book between what was written and what I know of Judaism (having been brought up in a religious family) and even Buddhism. 

The almost meditative state that can be borne from true belief. Be drawn into this compelling journey and share the hypnotic trip to Saudia Arabia. You will enjoy a great insight into one of the most remarkable and rewarding human migrations through hardship and turmoil. It is beautifully written, the pages flow as does the journey.
