The Secret of Magic

A Novel

'[An] addictive tale of intrigue' - the Independent
'A powerful portrait of the Deep South in the year before the civil rights movement' - Sunday Times
If you liked The Help , you'll love this one!' - Entertainment Weekly
In 1946 Regina Robichard is a rarity. A young New York civil rights lawyer, working for Thurgood Marshall, Reggie stumbles across a letter asking her boss to investigate the case of a young black soldier whose body has been found floating in the river in Mississippi. It fires her zeal.
For Reggie, justice is not the only draw to this case. The letter is signed by the reclusive M. P. Calhoun, author of one of the most banned books in the country, a book Reggie loved as a child, about the friendship between three children, black and white, a magical forest - and a murder.
Reggie has just three weeks in the South to investigate. But once down in Mississippi, amid the intoxicating landscape of cotton fields and lush plantations, Reggie not only finds herself further away from New York than she had ever imagined, but walking directly into M. P. Calhoun's book, a place where more than one type of justice exists.
Rezension
'There are a million metaphors I could use to describe Deborah Johnson's writing in The Secret of Magic -but all of them are inadequate in conveying the ebb and flow of her phrasing or the care in crafting her characters .... If you liked The Help , you'll love this one !' Entertainment Weekly
Portrait
Deborah Johnson is the author of The Air Between Us , which received the Mississippi Library Association Award for fiction. She now lives in Columbus, Mississippi.
