The remote mountain wilderness of North Carolina swallowed up the ten-year-old boy as he made his way down from the primitive camp where his grandparents had kept him hidden all his life. His dying grandmother, gifted with The Sight, set him on a quest to find the Good People, and though he is filled with fear and wary of civilization, Rabbit is determined to keep his promise to her. When he crosses paths with Sarah and MacKenzie Cole, neither their lives nor his, are ever the same again.
The extraordinary little boy called Rabbit has the power to change the world for everyone he meets, and the resourcefulness to save himself from the one person his grandparents had hoped would never find him. His dangerous and bittersweet journey will touch you in unexpected ways, and once you’ve let Rabbit into your heart, you’ll never forget him.
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 Mac and Sarah, who I got to know in the first book, as well as Rosheen and Handsome. They’re two of my favorite furry characters, and I adored how quickly Rosheen took to Rabbit and felt so protective of him.
Parts of Rabbit’s story are tragic, but overall, this is a heart-warming, feel-good read with some pretty suspenseful moments and magnificent character development. I can’t wait to continue the series.
