#BookReview – A BOY NAMED RABBIT by Marcia Meara

Even though it’s not #ShareAReviewDay here on The Write Stuff, I can’t resist sharing Deborah Jay’s review of A Boy Named Rabbit with you this morning. It simply made my morning, and after the events of last week, I really needed some warm fuzzies! I’m always so happy when readers fall for this little boy who’s such a joy to write. Please check out what Debby has to say, and then pass it along if you would. Thanks so much, and a million heartfelt thank-yous to Debby, too. πŸ™‚ ❀


My first review of the year was for book #1 in Marcia Meara’s WAKE-ROBIN RIDGE series, and I’m moving right along with my review for book #2, A BOY NAMED RABBIT. I read all four back-to-back, so I will get around to reviewing the others shortly.

A Boy Named Rabbit (Wake-Robin Ridge #2)A Boy Named Rabbit by Marcia Meara
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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 Mac’s son?
Meara has created a truly unique character in Rabbit – a child raised in complete isolation from the modern world. The only…

    • Thanks so much, Julie! Rabbit is near and dear to my heart and my head, wherein he dwells, constantly making droll observations about the world we live in! A review like this one just makes me smile all over! πŸ˜€ ❀

    • It did, Mary, and I needed it. I’ve had to say goodbye to many, many beloved pets over the years, as I’ve never lived without them. But for some reason, losing Maks left me feeling really depressed. I think it’s because I work alone, from home, and he just filled up the house with way more noise than a dog his size should have done. We have our four cats and my daughter’s two, and all six of them together barely make a peep, so it’s really, really quiet here, now. I actually like silence when I work, but it’s still an adjustment.

      Debby’s review was exactly what I needed to find this morning! I’m in a much better place, now. πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a minute to comment. πŸ™‚ ❀

      • I know how hard it is, Marcia, and other than send a virtual hug or two I can’t do anything to ease the pain. A pet really does leave a huge gap in our lives when they leave us. I only have one cat who is a quiet wee thing, except for when a neighbour’s cat comes in and then she’s all hissing and spitting. Then she pretends the other cat doesn’t exist and ignores her. The other cat is spending more and more time in our house and I do wonder what her owner thinks she’s doing.

        • I would have cardiac arrest if any of my cats got outside. They are totally indoor babies, especially since we live on a very busy street corner. But they are lovely and cuddly and great companions. And there isn’t anything that will ease the pain of losing a treasured pet, other than time to adjust to the rather large vacancy everywhere you look. *sigh* One of my daughter’s cats is curled up next to my keyboard right now, being surprisingly well-behaved. Something he is NOT known for. πŸ˜€ Maybe he knows I can use some extra attention. πŸ˜€

    • I will be eager to see what you think, Joan. In the meantime, those folks in Riverbend need some love, too. πŸ˜€ Hope you’ll enjoy That Darkest Place when you have time to check it out. πŸ™‚ ❀

  1. Wow! A child raised in complete isolation from the rest of the modern world. I taught a couple of children who were in reasonably similar situations, attending school for the first time in upper elementary school. Besides the obvious academic deficits, there were substantial social adjustments for those children also. Much luck with this series, Marcia.

    • Thanks so much, Pete. This is Book 2 in the series, but Rabbit managed to usurp the whole shebang! πŸ˜€ Yes, there are social adjustments for him, too, not the least of which is caused by his gift of the Sight, which initially made it difficult for him to be around a lot of people at once. He’s home schooled for now, but is getting better and better about being in public places. And he’s an absolute joy to write. His observations on the world around him are so much fun! πŸ™‚ His gran knew what she was doing as she told him he had to leave the mountain and find “the man with eyes like winter skies an’ hair like a crow’s wing.” It’s worked out well for everyone, as Rabbit has as many lessons to teach as he does to learn. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Harmony! I hope you’ll enjoy the series when you find time to check it out. (I know how hard that is!) And I especially hope you’ll love Rabbit when he appears. πŸ˜€ Thanks for sharing, too. πŸ™‚ ❀
