About the Book

Book: Mighty to Save  

Author: Caryl McAdoo  

Genre: Christian Historical Romance  

Release Date: May 15, 2017

Contrary to her parents’ wishes, Evelyn married a nonbeliever, but it all works out . . . or does it? Not only did the love of her life accept Christ, Nathaniel got baptized by fire and became a minister of the gospel. Woven into the breathtaking tale of love and redemption are two additional stories, Evelyn’s novels of faith, family, and forgiveness.

My Review: 
This first paragraph isn't part of the review that I am going to be posting on Amazon or Goodreads, but I am saying it on this blog, make sure you sign up to be entered in the giveaway. I am saying that because I have read the entire series, except the tenth one and the only reason I haven't read it is because it isn't out yet.  Even though I have read all nine books, I want the entire series in print signed by Caryl McAdoo and that is the grand prize in the giveaway.

"Mighty To Save" by Caryl MCAdoo is the ninth book in the "Texas Romance Family Saga" and sometimes when a series continues with more than three or four books, the stories begin to get boring, but I say with all honesty these books are not boring and doesn't seem to be getting old.

The other books, I think can be enjoyed as standalones, but I personally recommend reading them all in the order they were written. I don't think I would have enjoyed "Mighty To Save" as much if I hadn't read the other first. I know other reviewers have stated they liked it as a standalone , so I guess it is a matter of preferences.

"Mighty to Save" is written in a different style than the other eight books in the saga. This story is told by Evelyn Eversole Nightingale who is an author like her grandma May from the previous books. "Mighty To Save" is really two stories, one is Peril's story and how she was rescued by her true love and the other is about Evelyn and Nathaniel Nightingale's marriage.

This book is not your happily ever after fairy tale.  This books shows that God doesn't give his children all they hope and desire. It also shows that if we call on Him, He is Mighty To save.  But it also shows that we are all weak in our own strength if we don't rely on Him.

Oh. I liked reading a Facebook friend's name in the story. That is really neat when an author does that!

This book leaves me waiting to read the next book now because I feel it ended in somewhat of a cliff hanger.

I am giving "Mighty to Save "by Carly McAdoo five stars.

I was given a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own.

 About the Author

Caryl McAdoo loves writing stories for all ages that glorify God and is thrilled Christian fiction fits her life purpose so well. Bold not bashful, she’s quick to share the Bible principles she lives by through her characters and hopes each title ministers His love, mercy, and grace. Known as the “Singing Pray-er”—with a YouTube channel to prove it—the prolific hybrid author also loves praising Him with new songs He gives her. Her high-school-sweetheart-husband moved the family from the DFW area—home for fifty-plus years—to the woods and seat of Red River County. After Ron, Caryl counts four children and sixteen grandsugars life’s biggest blessings. The McAdoos live a few miles south of Clarksville in the far northeast corner of the Lone Star State with two grandsons.

Guest Post from Caryl McAdoo

Mighty to Save, book nine, is unlike all the other stories in the Texas Romance family saga as the heroine, Evelyn Eversole—you’ll remember her as little Evie in book eight, Covering Love—and hero, Nathaniel Nightingale, are already married in Chapter One. Where’s the romance, Caryl? You may ask. But I think you’ll see that Mighty to Save is brimming with all the stuff love is made of!

The depth of the Nightingales’ love is revealed and tested, and because Evelyn is a novelist like her MayMee (May Meriwether), we are privileged to experience the love of another couple whose progeny is intertwined with the Nightingales’ lineage. (knowing the characters of the next novel Chief of Sinners that was written over twenty years ago and served as the foundation of the Texas Romance series, it’s been a labor of love, tying all these characters together.

And while a very few have remarked that it’s a little hard jumping back and forth in time, the majority of readers have expressed their satisfaction and appreciation for getting to know the backstories in such a fun way. This tale deals with imperfect people—as we all are. I hope my characters come across as real, someone in your family or who might live next door.

In this world, we will have tribulation . . . but being of good cheer isn’t always so easy. Sometime those trials knock us off our foundation, and we find ourselves in an ocean of mire, like trying to swim through jello . . . weary of it to the point where only God can save us. And so we cry out to Him. And He does.

Should that mean what waylaid us no longer has any effect on our lives? Not every time.

I pray that you will enjoy Mighty to Save. This story is another reason why I’m so blessed that God led me to publish independently of the traditional houses, as I’m most certain it would definitely not fit their pigeon hole titled Christian Romance. Life offers hills and valleys. Could we truly appreciate one without the other?

Fair warning, don’t be expecting same-O same-O!
