A historical romantic adventure by Ray Smith

“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.

REVIEW

2020 seems to be my year of getting “un-jaded.” I’ve found new light and new adventure everywhere, despite primarily being stuck at home with this whole pandemic thing. Books have also found their way into this mindset, and The Magnolia that Bloomed Unseen is no exception. It took me a bit to get into this story, but once I did, the level of love and adventure just clicked with me. It’s a beautiful tale, and I encourage all to read this.

Especially now, in a time where news and social media are all about the negativity, this book served as a wonderful reminder to appreciate what I have and treat every day like, well, the first day of the rest of my life. I hit a moment in my road of understanding at the beginning of this year. With that, this book made sense. Prior to that, I would have told myself this book made sense while wondering if life could truly be so simple. (Not easy, simple.) Spoiler, it can, and while the characters in this story are no strangers to heartache and loss, they move forward. My grad school’s motto is “Hazard, Yet Forward.” It means keep moving forward even when there’s trouble or it seems like you can’t. I loved seeing the characters in this book transform and move forward despite their hazards.

Long story short, this book is relevant now and, I think, will be relevant always, despite its historical setting. Certainly, the time period has an effect on the story, but it’s not all about the when. It’s about the journey. I look forward to reading more from this author.
