About the Author

Marcia Meara lives in central Florida, just north of Orlando, with her husband of over thirty years, four big cats, and two small dachshunds. When not writing or blogging, she spends her time gardening, and enjoying the surprising amount of wildlife that manages to make a home in her suburban yard. At the age of five, Marcia declared she wanted to be an author, and is ecstatic that at age 69, she finally began pursuing that dream. Three years later, she’s still going strong, and plans to keep on writing until she falls face down on the keyboard, which she figures would be a pretty good way to go! Marcia has published six books to date, all of which are available on Amazon in both print and Kindle format: Wake-Robin Ridge A Boy Named Rabbit: Wake-Robin Ridge Book 2 Harbinger: Wake-Robin Ridge Book 3 Swamp Ghosts: A Riverbend Novel Finding Hunter: Riverbend Book 2 Summer Magic: Poems of Life & Love You can reach Marcia via email at mmeara@cfl.rr.com or on the following social media sites: The Write Stuff: http://marciamearawrites.com/ Bookin' It: http://marciameara.wordpress.com Twitter: @marciameara Facebook: www.facebook.com/marcia.meara.writer Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/marciameara/ To keep up with the latest news and giveaways, sign up for Marcia’s Mail List here: https://marciamearawrites.com/mail-list-win-free-stuff/

A wonderful, heart-touching story. I read Wake Robin Ridge and was touched by the relationship between Sarah and Mac, but this time around, the characters reach out, grab you from page one and never let go. That is especially true of Rabbit, a child whose odyssey and tumultuous story resonates throughout this page turner. Few books make it to my “favorites” list, but this is one of them.

If you like stories of warmth, struggles against adversity, with triumph at the end, and a touch of the unusual in between, don’t pass up this tale. It would make a wonderful movie. I can easily see if on the Hallmark channel. The author does a phenomenal job of placing the reader in every scene, but most especially of connecting emotionally. That’s so important in a character-driven story, and this one fits the bill. Beautifully written and told from the heart, with plenty of angst and twists and turns, to keep me frantically flipping pages, this is book is a charmer from beginning to end. I look forward to reading the final book in the series and discovering more by this talented author!

This book continues shortly after the first book ends.

Rabbit has to find the man with the winter sky eyes and crow's wing hair after his grandma dies suddenly. So begins his two month hike to find the "Good people" and stay away from the "Bad", he knows how to survive in the wilderness. But he hasn't seen or spent any time with stangers before so crowds and modern society feels very threatening to him.

Rabbit finally meets Sarah Cole, she feeds him and tries to win his trust. But she keeps him a secret from her husband, Mac, because she concerned about how he will react to this child.

There is danger and suspense as well as mystery and prophecy as the story continues, will the Good people triumph in the end? I'll be waiting for the next book to see how their lives continue.

I loved this sequel to "Wake Robin Ridge" every bit as much as the first book in the series. Rabbit is a gutsy little boy who tries to do what his dying grandmother told him to do. He has lived in a tent in the woods all his life, so is very cautious when he nears the house on the ridge that Gran told him about. This is an endearing story that you won't want to put down. Marcia Meara is adept at weaving a tantalizing story. I can't wait for the "Harbinger", the sequel to "Rabbit", which is due out in a couple of months.

“Evil’s comin’, boy…comin’ fast. Look for the man with eyes like winter skies, and hair like a crow’s wing. He’s the one you gotta find.”

Those are the words of ten-year old Rabbit’s dying grandmother, who has ‘seeing’ dreams. She tells Rabbit he must leave their camp and find the ‘good people’. Rabbit has lived in the mountains of North Carolina, as far back as he can remember with his gran and grampa, never seeing another soul and has been taught that people are not to be trusted. Rabbit is scared seeing his gran so weak and frail, and worried because his grampa hasn’t returned from getting supplies. But now his gran has become so sick that she’s insisting Rabbit must leave all he’s ever known and go off into the wilderness. So begins Rabbit’s almost two months long and perilous journey over the mountains to fulfil his promise to his gran. He’s determined to find the man she described before she died.

This is such a captivating tale and Rabbit stole my heart. It follows Rabbit’s journey and ensuing development after his isolated childhood, while picking up the story of Sarah and Mac from the first book – Wake Robin Ridge. They are expecting their first child when Rabbit arrives on the ridge and their lives are about to change, in ways they never could have imagined, from the moment they all meet. Rabbit is a remarkable little boy, bright and loving, with exceptional gifts. Sarah meets Rabbit as he camps in nearby woods, and tries to win his trust before she tells Mac, not sure how he will react after the loss that still haunts him, and hurts so much.

Reading about Rabbit’s journey and his meeting with Sarah and Mac is so poignant, it’s described beautifully with believable feelings and emotions.

I enjoyed Marcia Meara’s first book in her Wake-Robin Ridge series and this one, the second in the series, even more. In A Boy Named Rabbit we meet Sarah and Mac again in their home in the North Carolina mountains – and we meet the amazing little boy, Rabbit, who is totally the star of the show, stealing every scene.
Before she died, Rabbit’s grandmother told him he must find the ‘good people’ and the little boy fearlessly sets off alone to cross the mountains. While Rabbit is sure he has found them in Mac and Sarah, Mac is less sure. Still grieving for his son, he doesn’t want to risk further heartache. A Boy Named Rabbit really is a page turner, an emotional rollercoaster of a story. Have a box of tissues close by when you read it.
Even before I finished A Boy Named Rabbit, I had clicked the buy button for the third book in the series.

A Boy Named Rabbit is the second book in the Wake-Robin Ridge series, and it was a great read. A very interesting and unusual follow-up to Wake-Robin Ridge, this book sets the stage for more to come. I can't wait to read the next book in this series! It's almost a coming-of-age story, but there's much more to it than that. The story continues with Sarah and Mac, but nine year old Rabbit is the central character, and boy what a character he is. Marcia Meara has a real gift for creating the kind of imagery in her stories that put the reader right there in the middle of everything. Rabbit is endearing, his struggles feel real, and his willingness to find the people his grandmother set him out to find - against all odds - makes for a captivating story.
