Magic Hour by Kristin Hannah Book Review


Magic Hour by Kristin Hannah

Goodreads Summary:

Until recently, Dr. Julia Cates was one of the preeminent child psychiatrists in the country, but a scandal shattered her confidence, ruined her career, and made her a media target. When she gets a desperate call from her estranged sister, Ellie, a police chief in their small western Washington hometown, she jumps at the chance to escape.

In Rain Valley, nothing much ever happens–until a girl emerges from the deep woods and walks into town. She is a victim unlike any Julia has ever seen: a child locked in a world of unimaginable fear and isolation. When word spreads of the “wild child” and the infamous doctor who is treating her, the media descend on Julia and once again her competence is challenged. State and federal authorities want to lock the girl away in an institution until an identification can be made. But to Julia, who has come to doubt her own ability, nothing is more important than saving the girl she now calls Alice. To heal this child, Julia will have to understand that she cannot work alone and must look to others–the people in the town she left long ago, the sister she barely knows, and Dr. Max Cerrasin, a handsome, private man with secrets of his own.

Then a shocking revelation forces Julia to risk everything to discover the truth about Alice. The ordeal that follows will test the limits of Julia’s faith, forgiveness, and love, as she struggles to ascertain where Alice ultimately belongs.

In her most ambitious novel to date, Kristin Hannah delivers an incandescent story about the resilience of the human spirit, the triumph of hope, and the mysterious places in the heart where love lies waiting.

My Thoughts:

I think this might be my favorite Kristin Hannah book yet! I couldn’t turn the pages quick enough to find out what was going to happen with Alice. This one packed a powerful punch!!

I’ve read a lot of books this past week-A LOT! But I think I would have to put this one at the TOP of my list!

For those of you that have been following my book reviews YOU MUST READ THIS ONE!!!!!!!!!! πŸ™‚

5 out of 5 stars

  1. I’ve never read one of her books. Probably won’t get to it until maybe the next holiday (cause I’m now sitting in the middle of boxes and really freaking out about the sheltered life that I’ve lived in not moving in so long!). Or maybe even the three day weekend in Jan or Feb cause nieces and nephews will be here for Christmas. And I have 6 books waiting at the library already. And I might have just bought a Kindle and 5 or 6 titles that were on Cyber Monday sale. BUT I WILL. Cause your description does sounds really interesting!

    • Angie-

      I get stressed out just walking into my little home office right now! πŸ™‚ Books and papers and school stuff and a hot mess everywhere! πŸ™‚

      Oh, that’s another goal of mine- to organize it. Along with developing pictures from 5 years ago….. πŸ™‚

I love hearing from you. Let's have a conversation!
