The book Some Small Magic: A Novel by Billy Coffey was an amazing find. Billy Coffey manages to create characters that you can relate to or you know someone who favors one of the characters in his book. I feel this Christian fiction novel is full of twists and turns that allow you to get completely involved in the story leaving you wanting to know what happens on the next page or next chapter. It is one of those stories that shows life and death, the way people handle loss of a loved one. **I received this book from Book Look Bloggers for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.**
(from amazon.com) 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?
