A Guardian Of Truth
Son Of Promise by Caryl McAdoo is a Christian historical family saga. It follows on from the Texas Romance series but can be read as a stand-alone. I found it wonderful to become reacquainted with familiar faces.
The novel reminded me of the story of Hannah in the Bible who is desperate for a son. God loves to answer our desperate prayers but not always in the way we expect.
There is the theme of belonging. We all long to have a place where we belong and somewhere we can call home.
The past influences our lives but “don’t let your past determine your future.” A bad start in life does not mean that we have to have a bad ending. We are to learn from the past but not wallow in it. “We can make choices that shape our future.”
The novel is about choices. We can all choose to do the right thing.
We can all have a fresh start. “Everyone deserves a second chance.” We just need someone to believe in us.
Names are important. A name change signifies a new beginning.
Everyone faces challenges. They may seem insurmountable but “you don’t want to run away from your problems… you need to… run to Jesus.” Jesus can make all things new. He is in the business of transforming lives.
The novel shows that we may face demons. Our demons are unique to us. We need to name them and defeat them in the name of Jesus.
Another great offering from Caryl McAdoo. A fabulous plot and realistic characters blended with Godly truths.
