    1. This was way too soap-opera like to be enjoyable to me. There are so many characters, and the reader gets treated to the perspective of nearly each and every one of them. There was definitely some confusion here for me. This is the 7th book in a series about this extremely large family, and it’s a little hard to follow each of the many characters and how they are related to each other. I haven’t read any of the previous books in the series. The many grammar and punctuation errors added to th [...]

    2. ALL GOOD THINGS COME FROM THE LORDI have read each of the books in this fantastic series and with each book, I find a blessing, a message, a moral, and fall in love with the people all over again. I admire the characters, their faith, and devotion to family and God. Rebecca Rusk has been widowed for two years and has resigned herself never to marry again, but the desires of her heart are to be a mother. She travels to see her sisters in California to visit, but she also plans to find a child or [...]

    3. At Liberty To Love by Caryl McAdoo is the seventh book in the Texas Romance series. It is a Christian historical romance set in 1865-66.There are many themes within the novel but a major one is being unequally yoked to an unbeliever. Rebecca trusts God and knows He will always have her best interests at heart. She puts God's Word above everything, even above her heart. "Stubborn woman, putting her religion above him." For the Christian, it is never about religion, but always about relationship w [...]

    4. BOOK REVIEW: " AT LIBERTY TO LOVE" by Caryl McAdoo is a Christian historical novel set in 1865 -66 on the heels of the American Civil War. The major theme throughout the book is not to be 'unequally yoked' to an unbeliever of the Christian Faith. Rebecca Rusk, the main character, an ardent believer of 'The Word' is also widow of the late Major Wallace Rusk who, after seeing active service in The War was fatally wounded. Rebecca decided not to remarry but, to compensate for the loss of her husban [...]

    5. Read in series, not stand-aloneI had trouble keeping up with names or catching n to some back stories. While the attraction between the two main characters was decisive and refreshing, other elements took away from the enjoyment. Why would she think 2 years a widow is too soon to remarry? The boys prophetic bent was too much, even to someone who believes in God directing people. And Francy was an awful character to do what she did with no remorse. Her eventual apology wasn’t convincing and she [...]

    6. Sweet christian romanceLoved the story. Marcus overcame the trials the devil put in his way. And true love was found.Rebecca after becoming a widow, wants nothing more than to adopt a child. On her journey, God leads her to love.Marcus unfortunately has lost his faith in bitterness over the loss of his child and beloved wife.This beautiful story unfolds with mercy and Grace.

    7. Fun reading!This is my first time reading Caryl McAdoo. She writes with warmth and humor and takes you where the characters are. Love how she naturally weaves scripture and the plan of salvation in her storyline. I heartily recommend her.

    8. This was a great story ,hard to put down. Highly recommend.Great story, well written, hard to put down Highly recommend this book to everybody. I think you will enjoy it as much as I did.

    9. Loved everything about this bookGreat story and characters. To tell what i really loved would be a spoiler, but it was o unusual. I truly recommend it. It is so different than most historical romances.

    10. Thank youWhat a wonderful book. I have read a lot of the other books up to this one so had some history but didn't really need it. This is a stand alone book and very well written just like the others. A good Christian book.

    11. Another great storyEvery book from this series of the family from Texas that I read is wholesome and a pure delight to read. Thank you for letting me read another wonderful book of the Buckmeyer family and the many other families connected. To the Buckmeyers.

    12. Good readThis was a good read. It offered traditions of the era along with the culture of the times. A nice clean romance.

    13. Once again the author has written an emotional book filled with characters that tug at your heart. Her details about the time period sweep you away and place you right there watching the story unfold before your eyes. I love the way she tells a story so rich with raw emotion and honesty. Rebecca Rusk has found herself lonely for awhile since her husband died in the Civil war. The emptiness she feels is hard on her. She makes a decision one day to change her unhappiness to a life filled with joy. [...]

    14. My review I have loved each of the previous six books in this series but I think this one is my favorite because it doesn't have an abundance of characters and it deals with adoption and one of the babies that gets adopted is named Gabe, ( that is the name that my soon to be adoption grandson has). This story also is about love at first sight and obeying God. This story is also about believing in God and shows that you are never too young to be used by Him, as all of the stories in Texas Romance [...]

    15. WellI looked back over my McAdoo books reviewed and I said I was done with this author, and I'll never read her books again. I had to laugh, but I wanted to give her one more try. Maybe the last one I read was an aberration. I'm so glad I did.This book was sooooo much better. I giggled at a lot of the conversations betweeen Marcus and Rebecca, or with little Michael. Fun. It got a bit preachy in a trite sort of way somewhere in the middle, but other interactions about faith were spot on and very [...]

    16. At Liberty to Love is book 7 in the Texas Romance series by Caryl McAdoo. Rebecca Rusk longs for a family, being widowed for two years, she sets off to visit her sisters in California. While she is there, she looks into adopting children, when a set of siblings catches her heart and she vows that these are the children she should adopt. All Rebecca longs for is children, she has vowed not to love another man. Marcus Ford still blames God for the loss of his wife and baby, he is not looking for a [...]

    17. I don't know how Caryl McAdoo does it, but each book in this Texas Romance series just gets better! "At Liberty to Love" is book 7, and its message is "Obedience is better than sacrifice" trumps the sweet romance. Rebecca Rusk, lonely childless widow, is going west with a plan to choose an orphan to share her life when she meets a fellow traveler, Marcus. She doesn't need another man, but he won't stay out of her dreams, thoughts, or heart, but he has erected a wall of mistrust of God that can't [...]

    18. I really enjoyed this book. It was a little slow starting for my taste but once I got into it, it grabbed me and would not let go. I felt bad for Marcus. To see so much loss and suffering, I can understand how it would be hard to believe there is a loving God. Rebecca is also very lovable but sells herself short. She believes her husband is her one and only shot at love. Despite being extremely beautiful she feels she is unworthy of another chance at love. She clings tightly to her faith so much [...]

    19. This is one of my favorite authors and favorite series I love the Buckmeyer family. Each one feels like family! Rebecca has become a childless widow due to her husbands stubbornness to save himself after being seriously injured. She has dreamed of being a mother. Now she prays that when she travels to California to hopefully adopt a child from an orphanage her family supports, her prayers will be answered. Along the way she meets Marcus Ford and her heart takes a fall for this man and we follow [...]

    20. Caryl has done it again and written another a story that is a wonderful addition to this series. This is the 7th book in the series, but it can be read as a standalone, and I certainly do recommend reading the entire series to get the full background on the characters Caryl certainly knows how to combine Texas history, romance, and faith and write a story that is a delight to read. I have loved following the Henry Buckmeyer family in each book and I definitely recommend the entire series. I was [...]

    21. This was the first book I have read by McAdoo and it won't be the last. I loved reading and experience the faith and love of the Lord with these characters. Rebecca comes from Texas, widowed and determined to adopt her family in California. Marcus is a spiritually wounded man, with a talent to create and bring joy. They meet and instantly fall in love. The romance is instant, the faith is the best part however of this book. I loved reading what felt like true struggles with faith, and questions [...]

    22. This is a very good story. I love how Rebecca and Marcus met. Marcus knew many of Rebecca's family members during the civil war. He was friends with her now dead husband. Marcus felt he already knew a lot about Rebecca when they had their chance meeting. Rebecca is on her way to California to see some of her sisters and their families. She also has a secret that she won't reveal until she gets to California. They have some adventures and romance. Well done. I received this book from Celebratelit [...]

    23. This was such a good story. I loved getting to know the heroine better and meeting Marcus. The story shows that when you trust in God and follow his instructions then he will give you the desire of your heart. I would definitely recommend this book. I received a PDF copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

    24. I’ve followed Henry Buckmeyer and his family since the first book, "Vow Unbroken" and couldn't wait for this one. Could this be the true love the widow has never known before? At Liberty To Love as always, gives glory to God. All Caryl McAdoo’s stories are uplifting and truly enjoyable. I highly recommend this one and all of the stories in the Texas Romance series.

    25. Another Winner!I so enjoy Caryl McAdoo's novels. I know that they are going to be faith filled with exceptional characters. I loved that Rebecca stood her ground about not being unequally yoked to Marcus. It was great to re-visit with the characters I have enjoyed before and to delve deeper into Marcus and Rebecca's lives.

    26. A young widow finds romance with one of her deceased husbands friend'sA young widow finds romance and love with a friend of her late husband. This is a page turning story of their romance and love. The widow tries to adopt a child. This is a must read.
