Vow Unbroken by Caryl McAdoo


      With an intriguing plot line and well-developed characters, McAdoo, who's written nonfiction and children's fiction, delivers an engaging read for her first adult historical romance.                     --
Publishers Weekly


      After reading Caryl McAdoo's story of Henry and Susannah in "VOW UNBROKEN," I felt like I'd had another adventure with Tom Sawyer and Becky, this time as young adults.

The News-Banner


      Caryl McAdoo is a new unique voice in historical Christian fiction. I fell in love with the characters from the very first page. They pulled me into their lives and kept me there through the whole interesting storyline. I found the setting authentic, and Caryl kept me turning pages. I know you’ll love this book as well as I did.

      Loved this story! Fresh strong voice from Caryl McAdoo…most memorable character [heroine Sue Baylor] I’ve encountered in some time. Well plotted and nicely paced. There’s a Louis L’Amour and All-American feel to Caryl’s writing. Beautiful romance, one of the nicest I’ve seen in a while.        --Carrie Fancett Pagels, author

Five Star Reviews of Book Two

Hearts Stolen by Caryl McAdoo


      Christian Romantic Historical Western Adventure Fiction--a BIG genre for a whole lot of novel. I said it about Caryl McAdoo's debut "Vow Unbroken" and it goes for book 2, "Hearts Stolen". For me, McAdoo vaulted immediately into the ranks of a seasoned author--another great writer I'll follow closely.
      "HEARTS STOLEN" evokes the slower 19th century pace, but with daily life and death risks. Trail topics include Texas statehood, land deals, rogue red men, outlaws, daily faith, farming and family. I wouldn't want to live then; but 'tis fun readin' 'bout. Book 2 works as a stand-alone, but definitely continues many characters' lives from earlier.

                    -- Howard “Doc” Wolfe, top Amazon reviewer


      Caryl McAdoo is an entertaining storyteller! Early Texas history, action and adventure, and forbidden love are just a few of the threads that are woven together to create this compelling story. Hearts Stolen kept me up late, turning page after page, with an eagerness to know how the love story would end. I enjoyed this emotional journey of love and loss and look forward to continuing the trilogy in Hope Reborn!           

                   --Britney Adams, reader, Texas


      I thought Hearts Stolen is a great novel. I loved the characters, setting, history, and plot. I found the storyline quite unique. Just when I thought I knew how it will end, there was an unexpected twist. Highly recommended! 5 stars!

                 --Amy Campbell, reader, Salem, Virginia



      I loved Unbroken Vow, the first book in this series, and I enjoyed this one every bit as much. The author makes you feel like you are actually in the midst of the story with an outstanding cast of characters, especially an enchanting 4 year old boy named Charley It tells a wonderful story of early Texas including the rescue of captives from the Indians, Texas Rangers, outlaws and early settlers, and there is plenty of adventure and romance. I wasn't ready for the story to end and I am definitely looking forward to Book 3 in the series.

                  --Ann Ellison, reader, Abilene, Texas


      I thought Hearts Stolen is a great novel. I loved the characters, setting, history, and plot. I found the storyline quite unique. Just when I thought I knew how it will end, there was an unexpected twist. Highly recommended! 5 stars!

                 --Amy Campbell, reader, Salem, Virginia


      Get ready for a wild, uplifting, heart-tugging, page-turning ride. Hearts Stolen, a historical Christian Western Adventure Romance grabbed me at the start with Native Americans capturing the heroine, Sassy. Her feisty, fighting spirit will win your heart from page one. Immediately drawn in and mesmerized, I couldn’t set the book down until the end. Actually burnt dinner because I couldn’t cook and read at the same time. Forget eating, I ate this book up. Caryl McAdoo is a master storyteller who weaves in Texas history into a well-crafted plot with unforgettable and totally loved characters. I didn’t think I’d enjoy another book as much as her first Novel, Vow Unbroken, but Hearts Stolen is even better.

lways, I pray my story gives God glory, and so I dedicate Hope Reborn to Him and to His Kingdom. I would never have any books out therewere it not for Him. He continues to bless me with stories to send out into the worl

And then there’s my Ron, always faithful to love and support and encourage me. He is my story in so many ways and most assuredly, the love of my life.

I remember the first time I saw him at the baseball park, playing a game at the River Bottoms in Irving. And the first time I spoke to him when he checked out a basketball from me on his lunch hour. He asked me out and we were a couple ever since that first date.

Our forty-eight years (forty-six married) haven’t all been bliss. No relationship ever is. But God uses those times, too, to bind us together all the more. With His mercy and grace, we’ve made it through every trial and tribulation. I do love you, my Sweetest heart.

And to my mother, Naomi Ruth Cloyd Lawrence, January 9, 1931 through August 2, 1997, who loved me like no one else. I was so blessed to be her only child for eight years and her bright and shining star. She taught me to love God by word and example, and diligently prayed me through the years. Still missing her every day, I anticipate our reunion in eternity.

I love you, Mama.
