The Hypnotist Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

WINNER OF THE HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION'S YOUNG QUILLS AWARD 2017Jack has left his native Ireland and is making a new life as Professor of Neurology at a university in the American South.

He has certain skills, honed over his lifetime, that he mostly keeps hidden.

Skills in hypnotism and mind control . . . Thirteen-year-old Pip is plucked out of an orphanage by a farmer, hired as a farm-hand, and as carer for the farmer's wife.

But Pip is black. The farmer and his wife are white. And this is 1960s America, where race defines you and overshadows everything. As racial tensions reach boiling point with a danger closer to home and more terrifying than either thought possible, Jack and Pip's lives become inextricably linked. And Jack's hypnotic skills are called on as never before . . .
