    Interesting plot I struggled with the uality of the writing the easyawkward introduction of a romantic subplot and the oversimplification of small town life Just to start in this book small town life the REPEATED mention of who was homecoming ueen 20 years ago by almost EVERY adult character in the novel loads of uninformed gossip the collective best friendness of the entire police department etc etc etc I also wish the child welfare issues were researched carefully and were less sensational if the voices behind this book want the press to stop seeking a scapegoat whenever something terrible or unpleasant happens it seems the author would try to do the same and honestly examine every side of this fictional storyI also struggled with the idea that the main voice of the book was trying to prove herself as a leader in her field but she missed OBVIOUS psychological issues with her sister boy friend co worker best friend etcAnyway uickmediocre read

    Abandoned at 40% and I had to check twice if this was the same Kristin Hannah who wrote The Nightingale and The Great Alone as this was just so mediocre Bland and predictable so unlike her other books I honestly wasn’t WILD about the premise to start with and I should have gone with my hunch and left this one on the shelf as nothing about this book worked for me The plot and characters were so predictable and the story just dragged I found myself reluctantly picking up this one when I sat down to read and realised by 40% this one was not bringing me joy and we needed to part company This year I am finding I really need books to be than just readable I want compelling gripping entertaining or just something to block what’s happening in the world at the moment and I am afraid this one just didn't fit the bill for me

    Going against the grain again not something I’ve done a lot thankfully – maybe 3 or 4 times in the last year and a halfThis dialogue in this book seemed to have a Lieutenant Horatio Caine David Caruso in CSI Miami undertoneThis is the third Kristin Hannah book I’ve readI finished it in order to count the author in a reading group challenge on GoodReads – 3 books by each author to countwhile the first two books I read were okay they were in my opinion young teen novels But right away Magic Hour seemed to be much adultified yet within the first 3 short chapters I had a pretty good inclination where the book was going so a star is lost for predictabilityHaving 3 children with autism this book left a bad taste in my mouth – the main character initially suspects ‘Girl’ to be ‘an autistic’ but then gradually deciding against it only when the child makes meaningful eye contact – this annoys me – no she did not say no child with autism can have meaningful purposeful eye contact but she rules out autism as a possibility BECAUSE ‘girl’ made eye contactI acknowledge the author probably hasn’t had her own personal experience with children with autism and even if she did I also recognize this is only a character the author has written I let this one go hoping not to see references to this over and over againBut then later on I was further upset by this “You’re not autistic are you” Julia said finally “You’re worried about my feelings” Yes Kristin Hannah you’ve probably heard that people with autism sometimes don’t outwardly recognize or acknowledge or worry about someone else’s feelings – but I have three children with autism who are very in tune with other’s feelings and who worry about them And my children are NOT the anomaly I get that Girl is fictional and that she was created by the author NOT to have autism – and no I do not think Girl presented as having autismI’m not arguing these conclusions but it’s the insinuation that is coming across in the book that is reinforcing the stigma so many people believe that a child cannot possibly be autistic if they give meaningful eye contact or if they are worried about other people’s feelingsthese are the constant battles so many people with autism and their parents face and it’s being validated in your book How many times have I heard “there’s nothing wrong with that kidshe’s fineshe gives beautiful eye contact and look at how she’s caring for that child that just fell on the ground” I almost uit reading The lack of research into this and child welfare and other issues becomes further apparent as the book moves along In a brief paragraph the character Julia a supposedly professional psychiatrist contemplated “Asperger’s Syndrome Ratt’s syndrome childhood disintegrative disorder PDD NOS” Ratt’s Syndrome I assume you mean Rhett’s Syndrome I do see where I might have enjoyed this book at one time and where many other people might give it the 4 stars – interesting plot smooth and easy readingbut having 3 children on the Autism Spectrum being caught up in a world of therapy and psychiatric assessments I found the characters misleading and lacking authenticity Hannah attempted to purport Julia as a highly esteemed psychiatrist yet was one that if she had spoken to me about my children in the unintelligible ways she did in the book I’d immediately ask for a different psychiatrist to be assigned to my childrenthe child welfare portion of this case was also not in the least well researched I was also uite insulted by the character of the small town police chiefI don’t think Hannah is a horrible author – I just think she hasn’t found the genre that is most suitable to her writingI’d like to see her concentrating on teen novelsthat’s not an insultit’s a lateral movement reallywith the 3 books I’ve read of Hannah’s I believe it’s a better fit for her writing

    Another impossibly beautiful novel by Kristin Hannah The story follows Julia a disgraced child psychiatrist living in Malibu who’s called home to the small forest town of her childhood by her police chief sister Ellie to work with a wild feral girl who had been living in the untamed forests of the Pacific Northwest Everything about this book works perfectly—from the charming warmth of this little town to the colorful characters and vivid descriptions Like all of Kristin’s books you’ll still be thinking about it long after you finish

    Given the reviews I seem to be very much in the minority but I thought this was a wretchedly written book It had an interesting premise Two sisters in small town Washington state a child psychiatrist and the town's police chief try to help a six year old feral child My problem is that from the start the book took an overly melodramatic tone as it related Doctor Julia Cates facing a decision in a lawsuit about a tragedy involving a patient of hers Her sister Ellie Barton is an incongruous mix a chief of police with the mentality of a small town beauty ueen But what made this an excruciating read was the cliche ridden prose Sentences and phrases such as listening to the surf thinking how much it sounded like beat of her heart could have heard a pin drop and all hell broke loose Goodness There's too many good books and too little time to put up with that

    I would run to the train after work just so I can sit down and read this book and I was so sad when it ended A little girl raised by wolves is rescued in a small town and she changes people's lives as she adapts to her new world Really really good story

    I’m a huge fan of Kristin Hannah; WINTERS GARDEN and THE NIGHTINGALE are two of my all time favorite novels Somehow I missed MAGIC HOUR the first time around but picked it up last week from my local bookstore What a beautiful novel The characters are complex and compelling From the first page you are captivated by Alice an obviously abused and feral little girl venturing out of the deep woods for the first time her wolf pup clutched close I read the first half of the novel in a single sitting staying up well past my bed time and happy I did so Couldn’t wait to get back to it the next day I love novels with characters you genuinely care about and root for MAGIC HOURS captures an entire small town that feels like home Thank you Hannah for another great read

    I read this book about a year ago and didn't realise that I never wrote a review on itJulia Cates loved her job as a child psychologist but a horrible tragedy has made her business plummet drastically When Julia is ready to throw in the towel she gets a strange call from her sister Ellie who is a police officer in a small town Ellie says there's a wild looking child found in a tree and the people in the town can't get her down and they think Julia could really help her So Julia packs up and heads to this town for a journey she never would have expectedThis book was so beautiful and so touching I instantly fell in love with it It's a short fast and easy read and once I started reading it I didn't want to put it down This book is one of my favorites it had me laughing and crying and itching to keep reading and I loved the characters they were very well written and the story line tugged at my heart strings to the point I just wanted to adopt this child Kristin Hannah is such an amazing author and did an absolutely amazing job on writing this book I recommend this book to everyone who's looking for a heart warming and loving contemporary read

    Don't Bother Buying this BookI purchased this book because I enjoyed THE GREAT ALONE Unfortunately the writing of this book was not of the same caliber In fact I doubt I will ever buy another book by this author The idea of discovering a child who has grown up in the woods was interesting but the author could not carry it off Plus the love story which wasn't needed was too unrealistic Save your money for a better book
