The third book in Caryl McAdoo's Texas Romance historical Christian Western adventure series, Hope Reborn brings a new life filled with hope for famous though lonely May Meriwether, its heroine. Set in the summer of 1850, it is generously sprinkled with historical happening of the era. Listeners will take a steamboat south from New York City with a stop in Cuba before docking in New Orleans. The full length novel will keep you listening.
Deciding to journey to Texas in order to interview a couple of Texas Rangers, May Meriwether hopes to find new, fresh inspiration. Once she arrives in Red River County, both her Rangers are out of town, but she has a novel to finish and get off to her publisher and enlists her Ranger's cousin to transcribe the pages.

More research on the era. So many things are very inconsistent. I read lots of historical fiction and if I didn't catch little mentions of the time I would think this was a contemporary fiction. The speech is very much today and not for the time. For example she claimed to be Agnostic. This is a book for 1850!!! the term agnostic didn't come about until 1870!! Women wouldn't be caught in a bar unless she was a working girl. Drinking, Gambling etc.
It was boring! Nothing gripping, characters very one-dimensional. The first few chapters made me so worried that this wasn't a Christian fiction novel. I barely finished the book. I found myself falling asleep. Should have taken me 2 days tops and it took me a week to finish. I should have just quit.
Not a fan. Voice puts me to sleep. Hard to explain. Singing voice is very nice so that was a pleasant surprise.

I could never get into the character of Mae. She seemed fake like she was not being her self. Compared.to book two in this series this was dull.
