Remember four-year-old Charley introduced in HEARTS STOLEN, Book 2? Sassy's little boy who wanted her to cook the sparrow he shot with his arrow. The precious runaway who Levi Baylor told the Truth to, that Bold Eagle didn't want him? Well, in JUST KIN, Charley's twenty-one and off to the Civil War. I have stories all the way up into 1950, and keep adding more as I go.

Jacket Copy:
Love covers a multitude of sin.
A stolen kiss ignites a fire that burns all the way from Texas to New York City. Torn apart by war, rejection, and a letter with news she never wanted, Lacey Rose takes her shredded heart and runs. Charley figures something isn’t right, but is duty-bound to the Confederacy until a deathbed order sets in motion a series of events that test his love, honor, and commitment to the breaking point. Can they place their fate in God’s hands and follow His plan back into each other’s arms? 

SHORT: Lacey and Charley are torn apart by the Civil War and a heartbreaking letter. Can they place their fate in God’s hands and follow His plan back into each other’s arms? 

He grinned even bigger. “What are you wanting to know?”
“This morning at breakfast. Exactly what was it you said in Comanche?”
For too many ticks of the grandfather clock in the hall, he stared. But eventually, his lips thinned. He faced her, and his eyes bore into her soul. She blinked, and he spoke.
“I said your beauty shames the morning.”
His words washed over her. She had a mirror, and knew full well that her features were not all that appealing. Not anymore. Especially now that leathery skin and crow’s feet circling her eyes replaced the bloom of of her fleeting youth. She grinned. “Such a flatterer.”
He drained his glass, stood, then shook his head. “No, I’m not.” He tipped his hat—except he wasn’t wearing one—then strolled out of the room.
Her heart boomed. Her breath came hard. What in the world?
How ridiculous.
Then again, had she ever known a man like the Texan? 

I have followed this historical romance series from the beginning and they just keep getting better.  Lacey Rose loves Charley and is devastated when he leaves to fight for Texas with the Confederate army.  Charley doesn't realize Lacey Rose is in love with him but is both surprised and pleased with the goodbye kiss she gives him.  After Charley sends a hurtful letter trying to discourage her from waiting for him, Lacey Rose runs away and ends up in all kinds of trouble.  Charley also stirs up some trouble of his own when he begins looking for her.  Don't miss out on this book.  I loved it!           --Louise Koiner, Texas beta reader

Caryl McAdoo has done it again!  This Christian historical romance, "Just Kin", is a page turner that I couldn't put down until I finished. Its message, "Love covers a multitude of sin", is so very true!  A stolen kiss, torn apart by war, rejection, and a letter with news she never wanted shreds Lacey Rose's heart causing her to run away.  Charley figures out something isn’t right, but he is duty-bound to the Confederacy until a deathbed order sets in motion events that tests his love, honor, and commitment. I loved this series. I laughed at "the boys". I felt the hurt of Lacey Rose and the anxiety of the family. And then who is Mr. Dithers? A must read. It is full of so many surprises. I recommend this book and this author. Can the two lifelong friends see past their pain and realize God’s plan for them may be more than just kin?    --Joy Gibson, Tennessee beta reader

My Review:

Charley and Lacy have quite a adventure. He has to go off to war and she leaves home after feeling unwanted. I still have to read the books before this one but I still enjoyed it so can be read out of order. I may read this one again when I have time to read them in order. Lacy really had a hard time trying to find her way in life. I really admired her character. Charley is so confused at first on how he really feels. A story of survival and hope. Definitely some interesting characters in the book.

About the Author:

Caryl McAdoo is all about loving God! She currently writes four series: the historical Christian ‘Texas Romance’; a contemporary ‘Red River Romance’; The Generations, her Biblical fiction, and the newest Days of Dread Trilogy for mid-grade readers. Known as the Singing Pray-er, she loves praising with new songs the Lord gives her and prays her story gives God glory! In 2008, she and her high school sweetheart-husband Ron moved from the DFW area—home for fifty-plus years—to the woods of Red River County. Caryl counts four children and sixteen grandsugars life’s biggest blessings believing all good things come from God. Besides glorifying Him, she hopes each title will also minister His love, mercy, and grace to its readers. Caryl and Ron live in Clarksville, the county seat, in the far northeast corner of the Lone Star State with two grandsons.
