In the rugged Pacific Northwest lies the Olympic National Forest—nearly a million acres of impenetrable darkness and impossible beauty. From deep within this old growth forest, a six-year-old girl appears. Speechless and alone, she offers no clue as to her identity, no hint of her past.

Having retreated to her western Washington hometown after a scandal left her career in ruins, child psychiatrist Dr. Julia Cates is determined to free the extraordinary little girl she calls Alice from a prison of unimaginable fear and isolation. To reach her, Julia must discover the truth about Alice’s past—although doing so requires help from Julia’s estranged sister, a local police officer. The shocking facts of Alice’s life test the limits of Julia’s faith and strength, even as she struggles to make a home for Alice—and for herself. In Magic Hour, Kristin Hannah creates one of her most beloved characters, and delivers an incandescent story about the resilience of the human spirit, the triumph of hope, and the meaning of home.

    It's been a long time since I have read any of her books. I go through spurts. When I got hooked on kristen Hannah's books I read four in a row. Finally picked up this one and could not put it down. Reminded me of the four previous books of hers I had read. It takes a lot for me to not be able to put a book down. She does it to me every time. Just now getting ready to purchase

    I recently discovered Kristin Hannah and have devoured them one by one. Night Road remains my favorite but this one is a close second. This is a story that will make you heart ache for each character. It's a good read. I found myself reading slowly so it wouldn't be over.
