Check It Out: The Magnolia

 The Magnolia That Bloomed Unseen by Ray Smith
Contemporary Historical Romance*

“You’ve seen the woman in the photo. The woman screaming . . .” 

So begins the story of Molly Valle, who at forty-eight thinks she knows all that life has to offer a single, middle-aged woman—namely, men’s dismissal and disrespect. But when handsome activist John Pressman arrives in her Mississippi hometown, he challenges her self-doubt along with nearly everything else in her world. Soon, Molly discovers a strength and beauty she never knew she had—and a love so powerful, it can overcome the most tragic of consequences.

The Magnolia That Bloomed Unseen is a love story, an adventure novel, and a self-realization journey. It reignites the truth that many women—and men—have unconsciously extinguished: you are special and worthy of love, and it’s never too late to make your dreams come true.

5 out of 5 fairies

The Magnolia That Bloomed Unseen is a breath of fresh air. If you had told me ten years ago that I would read as many new adult and contemporary romances as I have at this point I'd have laughed at you. This though, this doesn't follow the same formula. Smith has a great voice, one that holds you captive. It's like listening to a story being told, I wish I could find the right words to explain it but I'm afraid today my words are failing me. Long story short, read it if you enjoy romance OR just a good book to escape into OR both.

Where to buy: Amazon

Add to your TBR list: Goodreads

* I know this seems like an odd classification, but the majority of the story takes place during the civil rights movement, and that makes it contemporary history
