Son of Promise

I didn't realize that this was a book in a series I previously read.  I was pleasantly surprised.

Cody's story is one we all have experienced sometime or another.  It made me think of the hymn - Amazing Grace's line :

"I once was lost but now I'm found"

This stood out for me.  Cody was almost a cast off.  He was lost in the system-lost in direction - lost in hopes and dreams.

But the strangest thing happened when he opened his heart to Jesus.  Love poured in.  He had a family.  He found God.  His world turning upside down.

Emmie and Travis welcomed Cody into their home and loved him unconditionally.  Just like Jesus - he loves all of us unconditionally  He is always waiting there praying that he will open the door for him and let him into our hearts.

Cody was the son of promise to Emmie and Travis.

Jesus was the son we were promised.

I loved the story.  I recommend this for anyone that needs a reminder that miracles can happen.

I received this free to review.

About the Author;

Caryl McAdoo prays her story brings God glory, and a quick scroll through her novels’ rankings by Christian readers attests to the Father’s faithfulness.

Her high school sweetheart husband won her heart fifty-two years ago, and now they share four children and seventeen grandsugars. Ron and Caryl live in the woods south of Clarksville, seat of Red River County in far Northeast Texas, waiting expectantly for God to open the next door.

To celebrate her tour, Caryl is giving away

  4. Jeanette, I'm so glad you participated in my New Release Celebration Blog Tour for SON OF PROMISE.. I didn't think this could be a "Texas Romance" as they're already married and there was no "romance" in it, but I loved Travis and Emma Lee from CHIEF OF SINNERS so much, I thought they needed to have their own story, so called it a "Companion" book to the series :) It's actually the 'second 'companion book as THE BEDWARMER'S SON is also one with the Nightingales in there and the Harris family (Emma Lee's ancestors) are in it, leading to THE CHIEF OF SINNERS. Thank you for the great review, too! I so appreciate it! Hugs and Blessings!
