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.

Add a heading

A Marvelous Redeemer is the third and final book in the Light for Christ trilogy.  Having read the first two books, I was looking forward to reading this third book, and it did not disappoint.  The story picks up the tales of Anna, William, Caleb, Charlotte, and the rest of the characters I had come to know in the previous books.

This book focuses primarily on Caleb and his friend Amira (a Muslim girl turned Christian).  Caleb feels like he is being treated as a boy when he feels he has become a man.  But as the story unfolds, he will come to realize he is not quite ready to be on his own yet.  Amira is forced to leave her family’s home because she has become a Christian.  She faces many obstacles and difficulties as a 14-year-old on her own.  The worst of these is when two men who have escaped from prison take her hostage.

In the background of the story of Caleb and Amira, Anna, Charlotte (Anna’s sister-in-law) and their family and friends try to keep life as normal as possible when Anna is queen and her husband William is king.

My favorite part of this book is the ending which demonstrates that Caleb has grown up and become a man.  So if you like Christian fiction full of danger, adventure, family,  and friendship, check out this book for yourself.

I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.

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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXykDvOTGVc

(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.
