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!
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.
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.Read more ›
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.
