This book is a gem!

Ten year old Rabbit has only known one way of life raised in the North Carolina mountains by elderly grandparents. His grandpa disappears and his grandmother dies leaving him with the stern warning, Evils comin, boycomin fast. Look for the man with eyes like winter skies, and hair like a crows wing. Hes the one you gotta find.

Scared, but determined to abide by her last wishes, Rabbit packs his meagre belongings and heads across the mountains until he stumbles upon Sarah and

Sarah and Mac survived a terrifying encounter with a vengeful ghost in book #1 of this series, ending up happy and settled together, but nothing could have prepared them for the way their world is turned topsy-turvy in book #2 by the arrival of an elusive figure on their land. Quite what or who is the wild, half-starved boy Sarah sees near the grave of Macs son?
Meara has created a truly unique character in Rabbit a child raised in complete isolation from the modern world. The only people he

Is it possible to join a fictional family?  I'd love to join this one and live in the mountains of NC.

Several other readers' reviews have mentioned how Rabbit stole their heart - I'm no exception.  He's such a wonderful character - wise beyond his years despite his limited education, empathetic, loving, appreciative, and an excellent judge of character.  He's an old soul in the body of a 10-year-old boy, and I just wanted to hug him and protect him from the world.

I was so excited to be back with

Every now and then, an author manages to write a character so distinctive and impactful, he becomes difficult to forget. Sometimes its someone inherently evil; other times the character is a beacon of good. But seldom does such a character elevate himself past memorable to do so is to vault over a rather high bar.

Marcia Mearas Rabbit is one such character.

I can tell you shes written another lovely book with a solid plot. I can tell you her settings are vivid and her villain chilling. All of

Having enjoyed the first book in the trilogy I thought I'd give the second one a go, too. I was a little apprehensive as it's often the case that sequels fall rather flat. I needn't have worried - A Boy Named Rabbit is one of the best books I've read in a long time, and I read a lot of books.

The novel tells the story of a ten-year-old boy whose grandparents have brought him up away from society to protect him from 'Bad People'. When they both tragically die within a day of each other, Little

A Boy Named Rabbit follows on from Wake-Robin Ridge. It is set in 2013 in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina and focuses around the story of a young boy. This book has paranormal suspense elements.

10 year old Rabbit has lived in the mountains with just his Gran and Grampa for as long as he can remember. They live in a tent most of the year and caves during the winter with no contact with other people, apart from when Grampa goes to get supplies. Gran is ill and Grampa doesn't return from

Rabbit has the gift of seeing like his grandmother, but will it help him to find where he belongs?
Rabbit has a father, someone he has never met. Someone his grandmother warned him about. He has turned up wanting his son, but Rabbit knows he must keep away from him and stay with Sarah and MacKenzie Cole, but will he be allowed to stay there?
This is a heartbreaking story, one that broke mine over and over again. Rabbit is a wonderful child and deserves to find happiness, even though it seems

Evils comin, boycomin fast. Look for the man with eyes like winter skies, and hair like a crows wing. Hes the one you gotta find.

Those are the words of ten-year old Rabbits 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

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

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

There is a great mystery to unwind in this second story about Mac and Sarah when she finds a lost boy; also a very human story because Mac understandably is reluctant to change his new life with Sarah. Even the characters we don't meet we feel for; no comfortable retirement for Rabbit's grandparents and tragedy lies at the heart of the story. But this is a tale of love and hope so read and enjoy. I am looking forward to spending more time in the North Carolina mountains.
