Raider's Heart

By Marcia Gruver


A Silly Little Lamp has turned Dawsey Wilkes's life upside down.

Hooper and Duncan McRae grew up hearing their father's tales of the little golden lamp that eluded his possession. Hooper, always the daring brother, seizes a once-in-a-lifetime chance when passing the Wilkes house to get a peek at the legendary lamp. But simple curiosity could open a Pandora's box of trouble for the McRaes.

Whisked from her opulent home in the middle of the night, Dawsey Wilkes wakes up deep in the Carolina swamps, the prisoner of a rowdy family who support the infamous Henry Berry Lowry, a vigilante intent on bringing justice to the poor.

Wooed by the competitive McRae brothers and shunned by their sister Ellie, Dawsey remains intent on getting back home to her ailing father. But has it been God's plan all along to unite these two very different families?

Book Takeaway:

Matthew 12:20 promises, "A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory." As long as there is the slightest spark of Godly sorrow or the faintest whisper of repentance, there is hope of forgiveness.

Why the author wrote this book:

I'm a firm believer in Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." I wanted to write a quirky, twisted tale with peculiar characters caught in a real mess, and show how easily God can slide the pieces into place to bring about His will.
