The Magic is Back!

For Robert MacKenzie Cole—or Rabbit, as he’s known to all—the chance to accompany his family to see North Carolina’s infamous Brown Mountain Lights has him nearly dizzy with excitement. And what better night to watch this unexplained phenomenon unfold than Halloween?

But when the entrancing, unpredictable lights show up, Rabbit gets far more than he bargained for. He’s gifted with what folks in the Appalachians call “the Sight,” and it’s this extrasensory perception that enables him to spot the one light different from all the rest.

In his biggest challenge to date, Rabbit—aided by his daddy and his newest friend, Austin Dupree— begins a quest to learn more about the mysterious light. Their investigation unveils a web of cons and corruption none of them expected and exposes a brutal murder along the way.

Throughout all, Rabbit is unfaltering in his commitment to do whatever it takes to understand the truth behind the glowing orb and to determine how he can help it. After all, it followed him home.

Our Review

I had been looking forward to reading Marcia Meara’s latest Wake-Robin Ridge story, as I am a devoted fan of the adopted, delightful eleven-year-old star of the previous books, Rabbit. I expected to be welcomed back and was not disappointed!

This story is all about the mysterious Brown Mountain Lights, a very real phenomenon, something that has puzzled people for years and had Rabbit entranced. I wondered if he would end up discovering something connected to his own special gift, his ability to ‘read’ people and sometimes see the future.

Along the way, he becomes involved in a murder mystery, turning what I thought would be a light-hearted story into something seriously more complicated.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Light. The quality of the writing, the wonderful cast of characters and the sublimely complicated plot left me in awe of the author’s talent.

Cannot wait for the next in the series!

  1. I love Rabbit. He’s a delightful little boy (it’s hard for me to even call him a character, he’s so real to me), and this story, like all his other stories, was remarkable. Nice to see it getting some love here.

  2. Wooohooo! I’m SO glad you enjoyed The Light, Ladies!! Thanks so much for such a “WOW!” review! I was interrupted so many times during the writing of this one that I began to despair I’d ever get it finished, but Rabbit does NOT deal well with me ignoring him. He’s a persistent little guy and when he wants to tell folks what’s happening on the Ridge, they should pay attention and write it all down. And this tale gave me a chance to introduce several new characters, as well, which was fun. Especially the addition of Austin Dupree. I envision loads of adventures ahead.

    Nothing starts my day off better than a review like this, and I thank you both from the bottom of my heart! Rabbitit reckons when you visit him again, there’ll be snickerdoodles and strawberry ice cream for all! 🙂 ❤

  3. Reblogged this on The Write Stuff and commented:
    Anita Dawes and Jaye Marie posted a wonderful review of The Light on their Books, Bonsai & Poetry blog. I love it, Rabbit loves it, and I hope you’ll love it, too. Check it out, and pass it along, if you would. Rabbit and I thank you for helping us get the word out, and we thank Anita & Jaye for saying such lovely things about this latest story from the Ridge, where things still go bump in the night. BIG HUGS, Ladies!! 🙂 ❤

  4. Such a fabulous review, and so well deserved. I love Marcia’s Wake-Robin Ridge books, and I ADORE Rabbit. This was my favorite of all the stories, and it’s REALLY hard to choose, since they’re all so exceptional.

    • Rabbit is a force to be reckoned with, Priscilla. And a joy to write, since all I have to do is take dictation, as he tells me everything that’s happening in his corner of the world. He’s an old soul and a great observer of the world around him. Hope you get a chance to meet him one day. (He comes along in Book 2 of the series, and takes over the whole darn thing! 😀 )

      Thanks for stopping by today! 🙂 ❤
