About the Book  

Book: Mighty to Save  

Author: Caryl McAdoo  

Genre: Christian Historical Romance  

Release Date: May 15, 2017

Contrary to her parents’ wishes, Evelyn married a nonbeliever, but it all works out . . . or does it? Not only did the love of her life accept Christ, Nathaniel got baptized by fire and became a minister of the gospel. Woven into the breathtaking tale of love and redemption are two additional stories, Evelyn’s novels of faith, family, and forgiveness.

About the Author

Caryl McAdoo loves writing stories for all ages that glorify God and is thrilled Christian fiction fits her life purpose so well. Bold not bashful, she’s quick to share the Bible principles she lives by through her characters and hopes each title ministers His love, mercy, and grace. Known as the “Singing Pray-er”—with a YouTube channel to prove it—the prolific hybrid author also loves praising Him with new songs He gives her. Her high-school-sweetheart-husband moved the family from the DFW area—home for fifty-plus years—to the woods and seat of Red River County. After Ron, Caryl counts four children and sixteen grandsugars life’s biggest blessings. The McAdoos live a few miles south of Clarksville in the far northeast corner of the Lone Star State with two grandsons.

Guest Post from Caryl McAdoo

Mighty to Save, book nine, is unlike all the other stories in the Texas Romance family saga as the heroine, Evelyn Eversole—you’ll remember her as little Evie in book eight, Covering Love—and hero, Nathaniel Nightingale, are already married in Chapter One. Where’s the romance, Caryl? You may ask. But I think you’ll see that Mighty to Save is brimming with all the stuff love is made of!

The depth of the Nightingales’ love is revealed and tested, and because Evelyn is a novelist like her MayMee (May Meriwether), we are privileged to experience the love of another couple whose progeny is intertwined with the Nightingales’ lineage. (knowing the characters of the next novel Chief of Sinners that was written over twenty years ago and served as the foundation of the Texas Romance series, it’s been a labor of love, tying all these characters together.

And while a very few have remarked that it’s a little hard jumping back and forth in time, the majority of readers have expressed their satisfaction and appreciation for getting to know the backstories in such a fun way. This tale deals with imperfect people—as we all are. I hope my characters come across as real, someone in your family or who might live next door.

In this world, we will have tribulation . . . but being of good cheer isn’t always so easy. Sometime those trials knock us off our foundation, and we find ourselves in an ocean of mire, like trying to swim through jello . . . weary of it to the point where only God can save us. And so we cry out to Him. And He does.

Should that mean what waylaid us no longer has any effect on our lives? Not every time.

I pray that you will enjoy Mighty to Save. This story is another reason why I’m so blessed that God led me to publish independently of the traditional houses, as I’m most certain it would definitely not fit their pigeon hole titled Christian Romance. Life offers hills and valleys. Could we truly appreciate one without the other?

Fair warning, don’t be expecting same-O same-O!

Top Ten Tuesday - Favorite Moms in Books

Today I am joining The Broke and the Bookish for their Top Ten Tuesday list. Today's prompt is a Mother's Day freebie, favorite moms in literature, books about motherhood, best mother/daughter or son relationships, books to buy your mom, worst moms in literature. 

Favorite Moms in books. . .

Molly Weasley from Harry Potter. Molly Weasley is one of those fun moms that is where all the kids hang out.

Marcy O'Connor from The Daughter's of Boston series by Julie Lessman.

Marcy is a mom who teaches biblical precepts to her children, her love is unconditional, she supports her children and their dreams, and she is still madly in love with her husband, Patrick.

Marta from Her Mother's Hope by Francine Rivers.

Marta is harsh and abusive, which is not the ideal mother, however she wants what is best for her daughter and she will fight for what she wants.

Marmee from Little Women.

For me, Marmee is a true example of a military mom doing all that she can to take care of her girls during post Civil War era.

Caroline (Ma) Ingalls from the Little House series.

Ma Ingalls is a real mom who guides her children during both good and bad times. She also has a smile on her face, no matter the circumstance.

Lillian Gilbreth from Cheaper by the Dozen by Frank and Ernestine Gilbreth.

Lillian Gilbreth is smart, has given birth to a dozen children, a feat in itself. Manages a huge household along with managing her husband's business. While a book was written about them by two of her children, she was a real person, like Caroline Ingalls.

 Marilla Cuthbert from Anne of Green Gables.

I adored Marilla's response to Matthew when he brought Anne home, "Where's the boy?"

Charlotte from Charlotte's Web.

Charlotte is the sacrificial mother, giving all so her children could live.

Mary the mother of Jesus. The Bible.

Mary, endured ridicule, disbelief, humiliation for the sake of being the mother of Jesus.

And the worst Mom . . . . 

Joan Crawford, need I say more!

She had no business adopting any children and I have no idea how she was even able to.

Who are your favorite or worst moms? Please tell me in the comments.
