"I Am My Beloved" by Caryl McAdoo Book Tour And GiveAway

About the Book

Title: I Am My Beloved  
Author: Caryl McAdoo  
Genre: Biblical Fiction
Release Date: April, 2018

The wisdom of this world is foolishness to God. How could the wisest man ever to live turn away from following God? The key is in Ecclesiastes and the Song of Songs that King Solomon wrote after his return to the Lord. Who was the Shulamite? And why did he call her his sister spouse? Only God knows all the answers, but the King Solomon left clues. You will never forget reading this anointed story of love and may find yourself setting it down to wipe tears away or simply worship the great I AM.

My Review:                                                              

"I Am My Beloved" is a story about Abishag. She is a young girl who is brought to King David in his later years, as his bed warmer, and then she is a bed warmer to King Solomon. She wants to be a mother but that isn't God's plan for her, She is famous for being the Virgin Queen. 
Caryl McAdoo has written the scenes so well that this reader could almost imagine that she was watching them unfold. I could actually feel Abishag hopes and hurts with both King David and King Solomon. 
I really loved it when authors bring Biblical characters to life in books because it helps readers realize that the characters were real people with feelings and shortcomings like us. 
I like reading how Abishag helped King Solomon write cclesiastes and the Song of Solomon. I realize this probably wasn't  the way it was written but it makes the Bible books more alive.
I recommend " I Am My Beloved" by Caryl McAdoo to any reader that likes Biblical Fiction. 
I also recommend reading Search The Scriptures after reading the story to see why she wrote some of the scenes the way she did. 
I received a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own.
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. She loves writing almost as much as singing the new songs He gives her—look her up on YouTube to hear a few. 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.

Guest Post from Caryl McAdoo

I AM My Beloved is a story unlike any I’ve ever written in that it moved me so. Not saying all my stories don’t move me, they do—to tears and laughter. Just today I got all teary writing a scene in my WIP for next September. But I AM My Beloved moved me to worship. I literally would stop typing, bask in God’s presence, and worship. I believe that it is anointed and of course, as always, pray it will give God glory. I pray that His children will be blessed and drawn closer to the Father reading it. It’s a romance, yes, but nothing like any proverbial historical romances you’ve ever read. It’s the story of Abishag. Have you ever heard of her? Her name is mentioned only five times in the Bible, all in 1Kings. “So they sought for a fair damsel throughout all the coasts of Israel, and found Abishag a Shunammite, and brought her to the king.” Kings 1:3 They brought her to King David. To keep him warm during his dying days. Scripture tells us the she cherished David, and also that he never knew her—his virgin queen. You’ll love her heart, creativity, attitudes, intelligence, and spirit of submission. It’s like all God’s beloved daughters can identify with her. Writing her story was akin to writing a love letter to Jesus. So often, it was Him and me, not these characters of olden days brought to life in I AM My Beloved. This love story of what happens to Abishag after David’s death when Solomon, heir to the Throne becomes King of Israel. And perhaps, you’ll get a whole new take on the wisest man ever to live, as he takes on building the Temple of God, foreign wives, follows after their gods, then returns to serve the One True God and write Ecclesiastes and the Song of Solomon. At its end, is a section I call “Search the Scriptures” that point out and explain the clues that led to its writing. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
