MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

When I first started this book I didn’t think I would like it, but after the first few chapters, it just got better and better! This is my first book by Caryl McAdoo so I did’s know what to expect, and I love, love it!  Travis Buckmeyer loves his wife very much but he still has a secret son he has kept secret from her. Now the time has come that his passed life has to be revealed. What will his current wife say? Or think about this situation Travis is in?

Travis and his wife were an awesome couple. Though they has some reservations, they were eager to pick his son up from the detention home. This young boy didn’t know how his life would change, and for the better. And after they had him for a while, I was amazed at Emma Lee. She was getting very attached to Cody and him her. I enjoyed watching Cody working on the farm, and Cody helping Emma Lee. And Cody’s attitude changed for the better as well.

This is sweet story of what love, forgiveness is suppose to be like. Travis and Emma Lee had a love for the Lord that all Christians need. Their willingness to follow what the Lord wanted them to do, no matter what it was. Cody ended up being a very blessed young  man, and you could see it all over his face. I loved watching Cody grow spiritually blessed! Now I want to put these three on my prayer list! This is a wonderfully written story and I appreciate the ending.

A copy of this book was provided by Celebration Lit Tours and the author for me to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only.

 

About the Author

Caryl McAdoo prays her story brings God glory, and a quick scroll through her novels’ rankings by Christian readers attests to the Father’s faithfulness. She loves writing almost as much as singing the new songs He gives her—look her up on YouTube to hear a few. Her high school sweetheart husband won her heart fifty-two years ago, and now they share four children and seventeen grandsugars. Ron and Caryl live in the woods south of Clarksville, seat of Red River County in far Northeast Texas, waiting expectantly for God to open the next door.

Guest Post from Caryl McAdoo

SON OF PROMISE—a companion story to my Texas Romance Family Saga’s book ten CHIEF OF SINNERS—features Travis and Emma Lee Buckmeyer, who readers first meet in CHIEF. She’s the sister of its heroine Sandy Harris, and he is a friend of its hero Buddy Nightingale; he’s also the son of Crockett Buckmeyer (from book eight COVERING LOVE) and grandson of Patrick Henry Buckmeyer (hero of book one VOW UNBROKEN).
A standalone, it isn’t necessary for readers to know all these ancestors to enjoy SON OF PROMISE, but those who do will surely love it all the more. What I know is that this couple won a chunk of my heart. Their faith is outstanding and their love inspiring. In the ’40s, Emma Lee didn’t have the fertility options young women do today, and miscarriage after miscarriage left her hurting. That’s why he hadn’t told her.
He didn’t want to hurt her, but circumstances had changed, and time was up. She had to be told that morning he already had a son born from a one night liaison thirteen years before because he was leaving to claim his Cody from a reform school and bring him home.
The boy had never known real love, but I loved him from the first. Forced to grow up way too fast—lying, stealing, and participating in most any other rebellious act—he’s missed so much. He’s overwhelmed with Travis and Emma Lee—their home, their partnership and love for each other, and their generosity toward him.
He planned to light out from the start, but days piled on top each other, and he never pulled the trigger.
In VOW UNBROKEN, there was an awesome canine named Blue Dog, and I went into his POV (Point Of View—got into his head) a couple of times. My Simon & Schuster editor ‘requested’ that I lose those segments, and so I did. But in this novel, I get into a canine’s head again . . . I’m hoping readers will find that fun.
In years past, I owned, managed, and milked a herd of eighty-plus dwarf goats and loved their Great Pyrenees guardians, so it was fun to include them in the story. I love how Emma Lee was able to sell her paintings for exorbitant prices, but remained so humble and unassuming. And that she and Travis opened their home (they’re so much like my husband and me) to total strangers. We’ve had so many people live with us over the years, to help them, be blessings—the hands and feet of God in the earth.
I pray my story gives God glory and that its readers will be drawn closer to Him through it. He blesses me and highly favors me daily. I can’t thank or praise Him enough!

    Splashes of Joy—-is your name Joy? You’ve given me about the sweetest compliment in your review! Saying how you could see it on Cody’s face and the best was wanting to put Travis, Emma Lee, and Cody on your prayer list! I’m so blessed that my characters became so real for you! Start with VOW UNBROKEN, book one and meet the first Buckmeyer who fought with Andrew Jackson back in the War of 1812 🙂 He was just a kid then. We get to know him when he’s 32 and a woman comes riding up to his mama’s house . . . a beautiful young widow he’s been loving from a far, but he still plays hard to get. Thank you for participating in my Blog Tour and for the great review! I’m so glad that you enjoyed the story!
