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.”
