From acclaimed author Billy Coffey comes Some Small Magic, "a story of determination and love . . . that deserves to be read" (RT Book Reviews).
All Abel wants is a little bit of magic in his life. Enough money so his mom doesn’t cry at night. Healing for his broken body. And maybe a few answers about his past.
When Abel discovers letters to him from the father he believed dead, he wonders if magic has come to the hills of Mattingly, Virginia, after all. But not everything is as it seems.
With a lot of questions and a little bit of hope, Abel decides to run away to find the truth. But danger follows him from the moment he jumps his first boxcar, forcing Abel to rely on his simpleminded friend Willie—a man wanted for murder who knows more about truth than most—and a beautiful young woman they met on the train.
From Appalachia to the Tennessee wilds and through the Carolina mountains, the name of a single small town beckons: Fairhope. That is where Abel believes his magic lays. But will it be the sort that will bring a broken boy healing? And is it the magic that will one day lead him home?
“Unforgettable. Evocative as memory, haunted as the South. Some Small Magic is big story magic written on the heart. Don’t read if you’re not prepared to be broken and awestruck at once.” —Tosca Lee, New York Times bestselling author
SOME SMALL MAGIC
SOME SMALL MAGIC by Billy Coffey. Thomas Nelson publisher
All Abel wanted was a little magic in his life, money for his mom, and healing for his broken body, from a medical condition. Letters come, were they really from his dead father, could he find answers from where they came from. Last day of school he played a trick on the bully, who caused Abel to be at the principal's office time and time again. Chris vows to get even, and Abel, has to take it serious, because his body might not take it. A traveling medicine man comes to town, could that be the magic he needed. Or if they went, would there be more talk about him and his mother. For Abel a young boy the belief in magic is real. The story touches one of the magic that is all around, one only has to believe. Story that will change, encourage,you as you travel with Abel. Given ARC by Thomas Nelson for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
