God Still Speaks Through Dreams
At Liberty To Love by Caryl McAdoo is the seventh book in the Texas Romance series. It is a Christian historical romance set in 1865-66.
There are many themes within the novel but a major one is being unequally yoked to an unbeliever. Rebecca trusts God and knows He will always have her best interests at heart. She puts God’s Word above everything, even above her heart. “Stubborn woman, putting her religion above him.” For the Christian, it is never about religion, but always about relationship with God.
The novel concentrates on the command to take care of the widows and orphans. Newly widowed Rebecca longs to adopt two children. Her sisters run an orphanage, so Rebecca travels there, in the hope of realising her dream. She knows that being a lone woman will count against her, but trusting in God, she makes the journey.
At Liberty To Love shows how God can speak through dreams, visions and small children. As God spoke in biblical times, so He can still speak that way today.
There are some wonderful exchanges of dialogue with four year old Michael. He certainly brings out the mothering side of the reader.
Caryl McAdoo demonstrates within the novel the power of trust and faith in God. “Nothing was too hard for God.” God shows that He loves to step in and make the seemingly impossible, possible.
Another great offering from Caryl McAdoo.
