The Love Effect
Set in the years following the American Civil War, people have lost so much but the love of the Lord remains.
Caryl McAdoo has created some delightful characters that took up residence in my soul. Grown up sisters were realistically drawn with their sibling quibbles and their loyalty to each other.
As there were prophets in the Bible, so they exist today. Caryl McAdoo portrays a character struck dumb by a stammer apart from when he is speaking in love or the Lord is speaking through him.
The novel revolves around a school for the deaf. Teaching, ahead of its time opens up the world for scholars young and old alike.
