Can anyone show a love greater than A Marvelous Redeemer?

About the Book

A Marvelous RedeemerShe 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.

Book Review:

_You know, Charlotte, it's not weak of you to ask for help. Actually, humbing yourself enough to ask for help is a sign of great courage._ - Charles (1)

Aleigha C. Israel has done it again. In her third Light for Christ novel, A Marvelous Redeemer, she brings us full circle. As with any good series, there are more than two characters to love and worry over. This time, we’re more concerned with Caleb and Amira but the rest of the family are there so the reader doesn’t feel they’ve lost any characters.

A Marvelous Redeemer is remarkably spiritual. Anytime a character has a problem, they know to call out to God and Bible verses are plentiful throughout the book. That doesn’t mean every character makes the right choice all the time, there are plenty of mistakes, just like in real life. The joy comes in seeing them realize the wrongs they’ve done and make their way back to God. The spiritual message in A Marvelous Redeemer is a well that never runs dry.

Probably my favorite of the series. Amira’s story shows a deep love for Christ and an inspiring strength to live for Him despite being forced to leave her family. Reading through her journey, seeing God’s provision for His children has given me a reminder that we are His children. While this isn’t a new revelation, it took on new meaning after reading this book.

More from Aleigha

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.
