The Secret of Magic

Deborah Johnson


In 1946 Regina Robichard is a rarity. A young New York civil rights lawyer, working for Thurgood Marshall, Reggie stumbles across a letter asking her boss to investigate the case of a young black soldier whose body has been found floating in the river in Mississippi. It fires her zeal.

For Reggie, justice is not the only draw to this case. The letter is signed by the reclusive M. P. Calhoun, author of one of the most banned books in the country, a book Reggie loved as a child, about the friendship between three children, black and white, a magical forest - and a murder.

Reggie has just three weeks in the South to investigate. But once down in Mississippi, amid the intoxicating landscape of cotton fields and lush plantations, Reggie not only finds herself further away from New York than she had ever imagined, but walking directly into M. P. Calhouns book, a place where more than one type of justice exists.

THE SECRET OF MAGIC is an absorbing and often moving story. At first blush, many of the characters seem stereotypical, but there remains something haunting and provocative about Johnson’s novel. It serves as a reminder of a sad chapter in American life, a chapter that must never be forgotten.

Rhonda Byrne is the creator behind The Secret, a documentary film that swept the world in 2006, changing millions of lives and igniting a global movement. Later that same year, Rhonda’s book of The Secret was released. It has been translated into more than fifty languages and remains one of the longest-running bestsellers of this century. Turning $1 into $100 is so easy when you know the secret. A magician folds a $1 bill in a special way and hides it behind his fingers. Then he carefully substitutes it with a $100 bill so that no one sees. This is when the magic of transformation happens.
