Overview

"If you liked "The Help," you'll love this one "--EW.com
In a novel that "brings authentic history to light,"* a young female attorney from New York City attempts the impossible in 1946: attaining justice for a black man in the Deep South.
Regina Robichard works for Thurgood Marshall, who receives an unusual letter asking the NAACP to investigate the murder of a returning black war hero. It is signed by M. P. Calhoun, the most reclusive author in the country.
As a child, Regina was captivated by Calhoun's "The Secret of Magic," a novel in which white and black children played together in a magical forest. The book was a sensation, featured on the cover of "Time "magazine, and banned more than any other book in the South. And then M.P. Calhoun disappeared.
With Thurgood's permission, Regina heads down to Mississippi to find Calhoun and investigate the case. But as she navigates the muddy waters of racism, relationships, and her own tragic past, she finds that nothing in the South is as it seems.
Named one of four titles on the shortlist for this year's Ernest J. Gaines Award for Literary Excellence, awarded by the Baton Rouge Area Foundation
