Book Review: Magic Hour

Not all the books on this blog are going grab your attention at first sight. Sometimes we have to give a book a chance before we know what to make of it. And Magic Hour by Kristin Hannah is one of those books

Julia Cates’ world has turned upside down and she is lost and alone. When her sister Ellie calls her asking for help, Julia heads back to her old town in western Washington. A six-year-old girl was found on a tree branch holding a wolf in her arms near the woods.

The little girl doesn’t speak and it is up to Julia to help her. Ellie tries to power through this case like any other but things don’t go as planned. Her love life has left her alone and sad as she tries to come to terms with how things turned out.

Julia and Ellie try to keep the little girl who they call Alice safe. She is traumatized and has grown up in the wild. Now, Julia has to win the girl’s trust and reintroduce her to the world. And protect her from people that want to use her case to further their careers.

Kristin Hannah is one of my favorite authors. When she writes a book, she puts her whole soul into it. Magic Hour is a story about family, love, redemption, and new beginnings. I will do an author dive into her other works so you can read her other amazing novels and see why I love her books.

The reason why I chose to read this book is because I trust Hannah’s books to be great. It’s an awesome feeling knowing how an author can thrive in different scenarios. If you want to read a book that will make you cry then this is the one for you.
