A Marvelous Redeemer FB Banner

About the Book

She knew the decision would change her life. But she didn’t know she’d have to fight to survive. When Amira put her faith in Christ, she knew life wouldn’t be easy. But hiding her conversion from her Muslim family soon becomes the least of her worries. Forced to leave the only home she’s ever known, she travels to the island of Gabeburough, trying her best to make a fresh start. Two escaped convicts and a treasure map. A leafy paradise that becomes her home. Amira begins to wonder, where is her Redeemer when she needs Him the most? Caleb Haddington is prince of Carpathia. Life should be perfect, but he can’t get a certain dark-haired girl out of his mind. Amira was his best friend when he lived in France, but her letters to him have suddenly stopped. Her last letter is filled with terror that her faith will soon be discovered. Only a single hope keeps him alive; when the time is right, he’s going after her. He’ll bring her back and prove to the kingdom that he’s a man. But the journey proves to be more perilous than he’d ever imagined. Ridicule, comfortless days and the threat of a hurricane are just the start of his problems. Lying becomes easy for Caleb until his own life crumbles before him. Brought to his knees under the pressure of his actions, he comes to realize the sweetness of his Savior. Forgiveness, grace, and mercy are granted fully to those who ask. Caleb and Amira soon discover that they don’t just serve a gracious Savior, but a wonderful, magnificent, marvelous Redeemer.

I’m beyond excited to finally share Caleb’s Song with you all!!
Something I love doing with my stories, is writing songs that become the character’s life songs.
I’ve done it for most of my books.
In A Marvelous Redeemer, Caleb suffers his way through learning several valuable lessons. But His Redeemer never left his side for a single moment.
We don’t have to try and make it through this world alone, because Jesus walks beside us all the way.
Through Jesus, we can find freedom, victory, peace, love and forgiveness. We can find ultimate joy in the sweet presence of our gracious, Marvelous Redeemer.
I hope you enjoy Caleb’s Song!
You can also check out his song on YouTube at:
And read an exclusive interview with Caleb Haddington and more of the royal family on my blog:
(And even have the chance to ask Caleb a few questions of your own!!)
Caleb’s Song:
“A speck on the horizon, nothing big, nothing tall.
Just an ant on this earth,

trying to break down this wall.
A trembling wind, a small ship on the sea,
Understanding this world is not all about me.
Trying to fix all my problems, trying to right all my wrongs.
I just need someone stronger to carry me along.

I can build up walls, and hide within,
but the pain is still there, with no way to win.
I need love,
I need a Savior,
I need the Prince who was born in a manger.
I need strength, in all my weakness.
I need a light to chase all my darkness.
I need Jesus, I need Jesus.
My well is so empty, my spirit is dry.
No relief from this pain, though I try and I try.
I can’t do this anymore, my life is a mess,
I just want to win this battle, nothing more, nothing less.
This world offers answers that only appease for a day.
But I’ve finally found my life source, the only One, the only Way.
My burden’s now been lifted, I’ve found a life boat on the sea.
My walls are broken down, I’ve found victory!
In His love, in my Savior, in my Prince
who was born in a manger.
He is strength, in all my weakness.
He is the light to chase all my darkness.
I’ve found Jesus, I’ve found Jesus.


This is a  beautiful story about a young girl  named Amira who stands up to her family and shares her love and faith for Jesus. This was a bold step for her since her family is Muslim. Every time I read a book where a character stands up for their faith, I am in awe of them. How hard would it be to defend your faith against your entire family? Amira is a good character and her life changes drastically when she has to leave her home to keep herself safe. I can't believe all the turmoil she went through just to survive. Just as she thinks she finds a safe place to stay, danger takes her off into the woods where she has no shelter or food.  A child of thirteen thrown out of places where she found shelter made me angry. Such a strong girl yet very vulnerable at the same time.

Caleb was quite a character and I enjoyed reading how he wanted to find Amira.  He is brave and won't stop till he finds her. It was not easy for him to escape the palace  with guards everywhere, but he was able to outsmart everyone and off he goes. Two young people,one thirteen and the other fourteen on separate paths that will soon cross.  I found the book to be quite an adventure and thought the author does a great job of keeping readers involved in the story. I do want to address the numerous scriptures in the book. Yes there are many, however each one fits the story perfectly and I appreciate how the author did her homework on picking just the right ones to fit the story at the right time. I love her wisdom in scriptures and made the story come together in an amazing way. 

I really liked when Amira said, " Never did I imagine that a single choice could affect my life with such intensity, and why because of one choice, my life would never be the same again."  it reminds me of when I accepted Jesus into my heart how everything seemed different. That one choice gave me unconditional love and hope. The story is a great example of learning to trust God and knowing he will always be there for you. There is a bit of suspense in the story that revolves around a map. It will become very significant when the map reveals the greatest treasure of all. 

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
