Magic Hour

10th June 2006

Magic Hour : A NovelJulia is a child psychologist from LA, whose reputation has been dragged through the mud in a controversial court case. Her sister, Ellie, is the police chief in a tiny Pacific Northwest town. When a “wild child” is discovered in Ellie’s town, Ellie calls Julia to come help. Through the process of helping the child, Julia is able to find her purpose again, and Ellie and Julia are able to heal old wounds.

Like most of Hannah’s books, this one focuses on sisters who are estranged from each other. It makes me wonder what Hannah’s relationship is like with her own sister–or if she even has one. This book isn’t quite as melodramatic as some of her other books. I enjoyed the plot-line of Julia helping the “wild child.” However, after having read many true stories of children who have been severely abused at a young age, I really had to question the amazing progress that Alice was able to make in a very short amount of time, as well as the attachments she was able to develop with others. The ending was a bit of a fairy tale, but overall, the book was enjoyable.
