"Magic Hour" by Kristin Hannah
I found another gem by Kristin! This one is very good. This book takes you to a very small town in the state of Washington where a girl suddenly appears from the forest. She doesn't speak and is frightened of everything. The police cheif, Ellie, needs to find what happened to this girl and where she is from. She calls on her sister, whom has been a well known psychologist in Seattle, to help the little girl. Julia has started to doubt her ability to help disturbed children after one of her recent patients does the unthinkable and she wasn't able to see if coming. She has nothing to lose but she will have to face the ghosts of her past in her home town. Will Ellie be able to be the town hero? Will Julia be able to find the confidence to help this child? Will the sisters be able to put their past behind them to work together? If you like Kristin Hannah you don't want to miss this one. "Love rips the shit out of you and puts you back together like a broken toy, with all kinds of cracks and jagged edges. It's not about the falling in love. It's about the landing, the staying where you said you'd be and working to keep the love strong." That's what the hard part is, staying and working on keeping the love strong. But that is where the reward comes in too. "Life was impossibly fragile. If you were lucky enough to have a loving family, you hold on to them with infinite care." This story is about love lost and love found. It is about opening up your heart again after loss and not being afraid to love because what is life without love?
