My Review

So ... politics. Not a fun topic these days because of just overwhelming division in our country right now. The good news is that the book isn't so much about politics as much as it is about giving us a realistic look at the era of 1969. The author doesn't hide all the war, political tensions, and hits themes of abortion, drugs, and more which I thought the author excelled in without exposing us to anything that made us horribly uncomfortable- it was just realistic. It is also a romance mixed in with a lot of Biblical themes which I thought the author did well with including the trouble with keeping secrets and more which made for an emotional read. But ... I have to be honest- this one just wasn't one of my favorites from our author, and I have really enjoyed a lot from this prolific author. One issue I had was some of the religious aspect seemed a little overbearing. Another was the book read more like a soap opera to me the way the women acted especially which I didn't really enjoy. I just didn't feel the quality was up to snuff for what I am used to from our author. However, I recommend this one  if you typically enjoy this author, enjoy romance, some political drama, or a more dramatic romance fiction.

I received a complimentary copy of this book, and all opinions given are entirely my own. 

About the Author

Praying her story gives God glory, award-winning, best-selling author Caryl McAdoo loves revisiting beloved characters in her novels. And her readers are glad she does! She’s blessed that her titles earned over fifty-percent 5-Star ratings and eighty-five to ninety percent 4 & 5-Stars! With forty-four novels (thirty-four in the last four-and-a-half years), it’s obvious she loves writing, but singing the new songs the Lord gives her also rates high. (Listen to a few at YouTube.) Married to Ron, her high school sweetheart, she counts their four children and eighteen grandsugars life’s best blessings. The McAdoos 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.  

More from Caryl

I totally enjoy revisiting characters from previous stories! That’s one reason I love writing ‘Family Sagas” like the Texas Romances that has ten full length novels and Cross Timbers Romances with two books and counting! The third launches this coming September. In BIPARTISAN LOVE, we get to spend time again with the Buckmeyers—Travis and Emma Lee from Texas Romance Book Ten CHIEF OF SINNERS. My heart could barely leave these dear people after book ten, so I’ve written a few “Companion Books” (five and counting 😊) that go with the Texas Romance series—either going back to meet ancestors or forward for their descendants or just more stories with the characters you already love. Readers first met Cody Buckmeyer and his kissing cousin (by marriage) best friend Cynthia Kramer as pre-teens in SON OF PROMISE. In that story, Emma Lee, so longing to be a mom, gets her heart’s desire in Cody, her husband’s son she’s never known about. The two youngsters became fast friends, but Cindy went overseas when LBJ gave her father an ambassadorship. It’s been eighteen years, and Cody’s engaged to another. After her letters stopped, he gave up all hope. A liberal Democrat, Cynthia comes home after working in Hubert Humphries’ losing bid for the presidency, and wants Cody, a conservative Republican, to run for a Congressional seat with her as his campaign manager! How’s this supposed to work?
