Description
In 1946, a young female attorney from New York City attempts the impossible: 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. Once down in Mississippi, Regina finds that nothing in the South is as it seems. She must navigate the muddy waters of racism, relationships, and her own tragic past.  The Secret of Magic brilliantly explores the power of stories and those who tell them.
