This is the story of Justine, a young black girl in the late 20's in the south. She lives in Texas, in a less than happy family, and ends up pregnant.

MAGIC IN MOON TIME

This is a tale of a young black girl's journey from awkward, used pregnant teen to independent woman, with a little magic mixed in. The plot was engaging and I read the story in one sitting over the course if a few hours.

It did contain images of human oppression (rape) that were haunting. Like other readers have stated in their reviews, I felt it ended very abruptly with no real closure. Due to the haunting scenes and some sexuality I would not let me teens read this.

WONDERFUL

This novel is pure poetic fluidity. Miss Harper's prose is like honey that flows across each syllable and each page. It has been awhile since I was able to snuggle up with a novel and enjoy the passionate fervor that I embraced for Justine, the lead character. Her cry was my cry, her triumph became my glory. Thank you Miss Harper for writing this book. You are indeed a new found inspiration.
