Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: Texas Timbers by Caryl McAdoo

Book: Texas Timbers

Author: Caryl McAdoo

Genre: Historical Christian Romance

Release date: September 3, 2021

He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains the Lord’s favor  . . . is the reverse true?

Can a romance born of prophesy thrive? Autumn Hope knows for a fact that the man she’s to marry cuts timber in the Sulphur River bottoms. She’s seen him in her dreams—exactly where he’s working and goes so far as to buy that block. Of course, she convinces her father she must travel the hundred and fifty miles to meet the man of her dreams. If he isn’t to be her husband, why would she kiss him in her night vision?

The lady’s sudden appearance baffles Sean. Craziness needs a keeper, but how did she ever find him or know his crosscut saw would break? Wounded by a lost love, he cannot believe the tall tale the pretty lady is spinning. It has to be a scam, right? God doesn’t work that way. Or Does He?

Caryl McAdoo is one of my favorite authors. Texas Timbers by Caryl McAdoo is Book 7 Cross Timbers Romance Family Saga. I have read several in this series, but I have not read them all. 

The setting is 1870 in Texas. Autumn Hope has been having a recurring dream. Her dream is very specific about her future husband. She sees a man who is Cutting Timber and her dream is so vivid she knows exactly where he is. Her father and Autumn travel 150 miles to the Sulphur Bottoms, where he is. Sean is surprised when Autumn arrives and not quite sure to think about the situation. He does know Autumn is a beautiful woman, but having been hurt by LOVE in the past, he is cautious about Autumn. He is really puzzled as to how she found him and that she knew so much about him. Will there be a LOVE Connection between Sean and Autumn? Does Sean finally let his guard down about finding love again? 

Caryl McAdoo does it again, another GREAT book!  Autumn Hope is one determined woman and she is also has a strong Faith. She felt her dreams were messages from God. I really liked how her Dad supported her and traveled with her. Sean is also a Man of Faith, although it took some time for him to believe this was God's will. I was reeled into the book from the very first pages and I did not put it down until I finished reading it. I truly thought the storyline was going to be predictable, but it was definitely a page turner book. I HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone who enjoys Christian Historical Fiction. FABULOUS Book! 

Award-winning author Caryl McAdoo prays her story brings God glory, and her best-selling stories—over sixty published—delight Christian readers around the world. The prolific writer also enjoys singing the new songs the Lord gives her; you may listen at YouTube. Sharing four children and nineteen grandsugars (three greats), Caryl and Ron, her high-school-sweetheart-husband of fifty-three years, live in the woods south of Clarksville, seat of Red River County in far Northeast Texas. The McAdoos wait expectantly for God to open the next door.


More from Caryl

In 1870, my TEXAS TIMBERS heroine Autumn Hope found herself practically an old maid. She’d spent those years when most would be courting taking care of her mother, who was ill and dying. It hadn’t been long since Liberty’s death when the story opens, but Autumn had one of her prophetic dreams—God had shown her a man and assured her He would answer her prayers for a husband.


Readers first met Autumn at her birth in book two, TEXAS MY TEXAS. She had her first prophetic dream in book four, LEAVING TEXAS, at the age of nine. Distraught over her older sister Charity leaving to live in California, the Lord gave her reassurance that her sister would be back to live in Texas, and that she and her new husband would build a hotel in Dallas!

All my readers love Morgan and Charity Lowell and all the adventures they have at the Lowell House Hotel! This is the first time though that God has given her a dream about herself. She knows what the man looks like and exactly where he’s working, but not his name. Still, she is determined to go and find him!


Can you imagine this man . . . a lady hunting him down in the woods while he’s working then telling him he’s going to be her husband? That she’s going to be his wife? Because God said so!


Poor Sean O’Farrell! He was so perplexed by the crazy lady! Oh, his mother prayed plenty and spouted God’s Word at him all the time, but he and the Big Guy . . . they hadn’t been tight in years.

TEXAS TIMBERS is a fun story and not like any I’ve written before! Readers will enjoy reuniting with Morgan and Charity, Henry and May Buckmeyer (from my first family saga), Corbin—Autumn’s father, and so many more of these great characters who so easily worm their way right into your heart . . . at least they did mine! I hope you’ll enjoy it! As always, I pray my story gives God glory!
