I am my Beloved by Caryl Macadoo

I am my beloved FB Banner copy


Title: I Am My Beloved
Author: Caryl McAdoo
Genre: Biblical Fiction
Release Date: April, 2018
The wisdom of this world is foolishness to God. 
How could the wisest man ever to live turn away from following God? The key is in Ecclesiastes and the Song of Songs that King Solomon wrote after his return to the Lord. Who was the Shulamite? And why did he call her his sister spouse? Only God knows the answer, but the wisest man who ever lived left clues. You will never forget reading this anointed story and may find yourself setting it down to wipe tears away or simply worship the great I AM. 


 I feel blessed that I got to read this book! For I have gotten a lot out of this beautiful biblical fiction.
Isn't it wonderful to know that our Lord doesn't forsake us nor does he ever leave us?
Indeed it surely is for without Him we'd be nothing!!
I also want to say that such a beautiful cover!! I'm a sucker for lovely covers!
I think it wonderful to read about Abishag and King Solomon! 
I know that we're not to wonder after the Bible but I think it's pretty awesome to know what went on in these people's lives long after that particular verse is over. 
The way Caryl writes, she enables u to feel like what their lives would have been like!
Abishag truly appreciates life even though she has up and downs she always manages to praise God!! Oh my!! She even made me want to sing and dance even tho I was sorely in a bad mood tonight. My feet wanted to lift off the ground the way hers did!!
And the food!! Just makes me want to drool and reach into the book to grab some!!! Especially breakfast since that is my favorite food! I couldn't imagine having that much food!!
The Lord reminds us to have no other God's before Him for He is a jeaulous God. 
I most assuredly have fallen from Grace many times!! I'm still struggling!
I so loved this book that I recommend you to read it and try to follow along in your Bible. It's amazing that these authors can bring them to life and I can the loving God through this author's heart!! 
I loved her earlier book called the Bedwarmers Son but I think this will be my most favorite by her!
I received this book for free! All opinions are my own!!

Caryl McAdoo prays her story brings God glory, and a quick scroll through her novels’ rankings by Christian readers attests to the Father’s faithfulness. She loves writing almost as much as singing the new songs He gives her—look her up on YouTube to hear a few. Her high school sweetheart husband won her heart fifty-two years ago, and now they share four children and seventeen grandsugars. Ron and Caryl 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.

Guest Post from Caryl McAdoo

I AM My Beloved is a story unlike any I’ve ever written in that it moved me so. Not saying all my stories don’t move me, they do—to tears and laughter. Just today I got all teary writing a scene in my WIP for next September. But I AM My Beloved moved me to worship. I literally would stop typing, bask in God’s presence, and worship.

I believe that it is anointed and of course, as always, pray it will give God glory. I pray that His children will be blessed and drawn closer to the Father reading it. It’s a romance, yes, but nothing like any proverbial historical romances you’ve ever read.
It’s the story of Abishag. Have you ever heard of her? Her name is mentioned only five times in the Bible, all in 1Kings. “So they sought for a fair damsel throughout all the coasts of Israel, and found Abishag a Shunammite, and brought her to the king.” Kings 1:3 They brought her to King David. To keep him warm during his dying days.
Scripture tells us the she cherished David, and also that he never knew her—his virgin queen. You’ll love her heart, creativity, attitudes, intelligence, and spirit of submission. It’s like all God’s beloved daughters can identify with her. Writing her story was akin to writing a love letter to Jesus. So often, it was Him and me, not these characters of olden days brought to life in I AM My Beloved.
This love story of what happens to Abishag after David’s death when Solomon, heir to the Throne becomes King of Israel. And perhaps, you’ll get a whole new take on the wisest man ever to live, as he takes on building the Temple of God, foreign wives, follows after their gods, then returns to serve the One True God and write Ecclesiastes and the Song of Solomon.
At its end, is a section I call “Search the Scriptures” that point out and explain the clues that led to its writing. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
