What Ever Happened to Mr. MAJIC?
On the day of her mother's funeral, twenty-three-year-old Grace Maxwell discovered the man who raised her was not her biological father. Instead, her "real" father was a best-selling self-help author and a world famous "Guru to the Stars." Known as Mr. MAJIC, for the miraculous impact his books and seminars had on millions of people, he had inexplicitly vanished around the time Grace's mother became pregnant with her.
For over 20 years, the mystery of Mr. MAJIC’s sudden and unexpected disappearance, and the speculation of what might have become of him, was the stuff of Urban Legend. The theories ranged from he was a homeless bum living under a bridge in the Bay Area to his most avid fans claiming he had attained divine enlightenment and had ascended straight to heaven. Even nearly a quarter of a century later, on the anniversary of his disappearance, there would be stories in the media asking What Ever Happened to Mr. MAJIC?
Among her mother's things, Grace discovered MAJIC's long missing and thought lost forever unpublished manuscript, "The True Path to Enlightenment." The manuscript was considered to be the Holy Grail of self-help books and was worth a king's ransom. The problem for Grace, before anyone will publish the book, she must prove paternity and the manuscript was not a fake. This was no small task, considering the only person who could provide the definitive confirmation hasn't been seen or heard from in over two decades. With the help of her fellow Generation Z sister and an old-school, hard-boiled detective that had made finding MAJIC his life's work, Grace goes on a quest to find the elusive Mr. MAJIC.
Along the way she discovers her perfect soulmate, true inner-peace and a state of wellbeing she had previously thought unimaginable.
This story is a classic parable that will resonate with anyone on a personal vision quest or anyone simply seeking to find more happiness and contentment in their day-to-day existence.
Wrapped inside this fast-paced romantic mystery, the reader will discover a simple to follow tutorial of how to identify and release the things that are making them miserable. They will gently be shown a simple step-by-step process that, if followed, can lead to a state of enlightenment and wellbeing.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Part mystery and part relationship tale, WHATEVER HAPPENED TO MR. MAJIC, provides the reader with a fun, lite read that can easily fill a spring afternoon or qualify as a beach read. This offering tells the tale of how two sisters, Grace the outsider who lives in her head and Sunny whose outlook on life is reflected in her name and the manner in which they re-engage after the death of their mother, investigate a long kept family secret and come away richer both emotionally, romantically and financially. Entertaining as well as informative, it’s a narrative filled with humor and inspiration that takes a few swipes at the business of publishing as well as the self-help gurus who push their ideas of how to achieve perfect happiness (theirs seemingly is selling their books and conducting seminars in the quest of amassing huge amounts of cash). Along with an engaging story of lives in transition, authors Pennington and Martin manage to insert some interesting insights into their tome for the reader to ponder and digest.
