Publisher's Summary

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.

Enjoyable

Enjoyed meeting new characters as well as seeing the ones we have already met in a continuance of this series. Seeing a widowed father adapt to raising teenage daughters as well as a young son while trusting the Lord to help him was refreshing. The Lord brought just the right person along in a fun way. I was given a free audio code by the author and have voluntarily left this honest review.

Trust and obey

Great reading by Caryl McAdoo. By waiting on God, he will fill our hearts with joy. This is the ongoing saga of a family in Texas. A widowed father deals with his growing daughters and young son. All could use the love and guidance of a Christian mother. Many women show interest in the handsome, charming father, but none seem to capture his heart. Enjoy!!

The Journey Continues

All I want to say is this series is amazing. Truly I am so anxious to get through each one, but then again I do not want it to ever end. Plus I want to be a part of this amazing family. With Caryl's written words and the narration of Lisa Baarns I am pulled into the story and it is real. This is May and Henry's story and how both found love, although it is a journey. I was not a fan of May's at first with her disbelief and secrets. But as she opened up, and yes it took awhile, she became more likable. Of course Henry Buckmeyer is larger than life and I love this man. I cannot wait for this next in this saga!

Another page turner!

Another great book in the series! Caryl brings us to Texas and starts us on a journey six years after Sue passes away. All of our favorite family members are here and we get to catch up with everyone as well as meet May and Chester. Secrets, plot twists, and new adventures await the reader.

Hope Reborn

Excellent read. A wholesome romance and fine example of family love and values. Easy to get caught up with the characters and become one of them.

Very confusing

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

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.

What was most disappointing about Caryl McAdoo’s story?

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.

What didn’t you like about Lisa Baarns’s performance?

Not a fan. Voice puts me to sleep. Hard to explain. Singing voice is very nice so that was a pleasant surprise.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Definately not as good as the second book in series

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.
