The Secret of Magic‏ Review

11:28:00 AM

Hey there lovelies,

So today I'm going to be reviewing another book.

Todays book is The Secret of Magic by Deborah Johnson

Summary of the book:

In 1946, a young female attorney from New York City attempts the impossible: attaining justice for a black man in the Deep South.

Regina Robichard works for Thurgood Marshall, who receives an unusual letter asking the NAACP to investigate the murder of a returning black war hero. It is signed by M. P. Calhoun, the most reclusive author in the country.

As a child, Regina was captivated by Calhoun’s The Secret of Magic, a novel in which white and black children played together in a magical forest.

Once down in Mississippi, Regina finds that nothing in the South is as it seems. She must navigate the muddy waters of racism, relationships, and her own tragic past. The Secret of Magic brilliantly explores the power of stories and those who tell them.

My Review:

 Once I finished the book all I could say was wow this book is so amazing I loved every page every word of was an incredible story that made me have mixed emotions.Reading this book was like looking at a piece of art. I couldn't put this book down i loved every single page of it. i love how its based on a Children's book of the same name but has changed that its now historical fiction. It transports the readers to post WWII Mississippi. I think this book should be nominated for a lot of awards.The perspective of a very well educated young African-American woman attorney from New York having to deal with a murder in the south after World War II gave insights one never really thinks about. This is a book that i will recommend to everyone.
