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.

With a heart-wrenching sob, Amira turned and walked briskly towards the direction of the village.
She didn’t know where she was going, but she was no longer safe here.
At this moment, she was completely uncertain of what the future held.
But one thing she knew for certain; her life would never be the same again.
“We all mess up, and we all have troubles. None of us deserve God’s grace, but He gives it to us anyway. Because of that, I’m convinced of one thing.”
Caleb’s eyes searched the sea of faces until they landed on Amira. He sent her a smile, his eyes growing bright. “We, as humans serve the most amazing Savior. And He’s not just our Redeemer. He’s a miraculous, gracious, perfect, and marvelous Redeemer.”
