I haven’t read any of the author’s books previously, so I went into Raider's Heart - first in the Backwoods Brides series - ready to see if I had found a new favorite. While the book was certainly captivating, I had a few minor problems with the writing. But this didn't completely ruin the book for me and I’ll be keeping my eye out for this author’s works in the future! I loved the story plot! The characters were a bit paper-thin at times and I thought a few of their actions were a bit e [...]
If you're like me there are probably a few author's who you turn to if you want a guaranteed romantic read, a few you go to for that suspense laden drama and a few you turn to just for an escape. Marcia Gruver is one of the author's whose books I turn to when I want to read a book that has an out of the ordinary setting. Don't get me wrong her stories have romance, some suspense and they are definitely great escapes from everyday life but the thing that grabs me the most about Ms. Gruver is her [...]
An exciting read!This was a different story but a good one. It had quite a few twists and turns I wasn't expecting. I'm not sure what book two will entail but I'm excited to find out. Hopefully a clue to one of the boy's past?

I feel like I’ve unearthed a treasure in discovering this author and her books!

Set mostly in the 1870’s in the Carolina swamps, it immediately drew me in with its unique setting that was both stimulating and exciting, and teeming with intriguing history and rich culture. Raider’s Heart contained so many wonderful, humor [...]
Marcia Gruver opens her new series, Backwoods Brides strong with Raider’s Heart. A tale of romance, adventure, and faith unfolds grasping the reader’s attention. Raider’s Heart is a story of forgiveness and letting God take control amidst tragedy. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and couldn’t put it down, consequently reading it in one sitting. The novel has one of those “feel-good” endings that while not the most realistic because it’s a bit too perfect; it is a nice break from rea [...]
It was a little slow in getting my interest at first but I soon decided I would read it and ended up liking it very much. there is a lot of backwoods behavior and thinking that I had trouble getting into but that is the name of the series. And I thought Marcia did a good job depicting the characters and the culture and wove it into a interesting, informative & heart warming story. I would recomend it to anyone interested in the backwoods southern lifestyle.
A love story to the end. The author kept the reader guessing, not sure of what was to happen, and the twists that she incorporated throughout, like the rejection and insecure reactions were thoroughly entertaining. A book to my own heart.
This was a pleasing find at a local Goodwill. I read it and couldn't put it down. There were enough twists to keep me interested all the way through. Ordered the next two in the series as soon as I had finished the book.
I read the sample and became very confused with all the different characters. I had a hard time following the story even though it was just the first couple of chapters.
I loved loved loved this book!!! <3
Cute story with a good amount of humor attachedquite a few life lessons in here. Regardless, it's well-written and once it picks up, I couldn't put it down lol
Loved the storyline, but I am a romantic! Love how she was able to work in God's forgiveness and how easy it is to achieve that.
