From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nightingale and The Great Alone comes an incandescent story about the resilience of the human spirit, the triumph of hope, and the meaning of home.
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.
“One of [Kristin Hannah’s] most compelling and riveting novels.”—Booklist


  • Very good book

    By #new mommy
    This was a great book. I was so engrossed with it that I picked it up every time I got a spare moment. I felt a satisfaction reading it that only a really good book can give. It was easy to get caught up in the scenery and the characters with the rich description that the author gave.

    Kristin Hannah is my favorite author. This book, in a way or another, is similar to true colors. True colors remains my favorite book by Kristin Hannah. Magic hour, like true colors, addresses hour broken justice system. It addresses wrongful convictions. I love it! I got to appreciate the characters of both Julia and Ellie, particularly Elli. Kristen has done a magnificent job developing Alice’s character. Very good Read -i recommend it!
  • WOW

    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.
