Sins of the Mothers (Texas Romance Series Book 4) by [McAdoo, Caryl]

Persistent faith brings redemption and reconciliation.
Propelled by blind love, Mary Rachel Buckmeyer defies her father to elope with Caleb Wheeler. The newlyweds run off to California then partner with his cousin in his dry goods business.
Unbeknownst to the young bride, her new husband sends his kissing cousin ahead. He wants his love and his new wife’s money, too. Betrayal and murder drive Mary, soon a young mother, to the depths of despair. But she hates the man who loves her enough to cover her sins and deliver her out of the horrible pit she’s dug for herself in. Or does she?
Mary Rachel travels from frontier Texas to the raw bone boomtown of 1850’s San Francisco gold rush days, then all the way to genteel New York to find redemption for the sins of her mothers.





“What if I never love you?”
“Doesn’t matter, the onus is on me to love you. I haven’t found one place scripture tells the wife to love her husband. And I do love you, Mary Rachel, with my whole being. Father God will take care of the rest.”
This book by Caryl McAdoo is book 4 in the Texas Romance series. I did not read any other books in the series prior to reading this one but was able to follow the plot and the main characters’ journey. Reading the first three books would have given me a better insight into the multitude of secondary characters and how they all connect to each other and to the main characters in this particular book. Even though the sheer number of characters in this book and series overwhelmed me in the beginning, the book was quite enjoyable. The plot is engaging with unexpected twists and turns, the characters Mary, Lanelle, Moses, and Jethro are interesting, and the story moves at a good pace.
The emotional and spiritual journey that each of the main characters undertakes is raw and real.
The settings of San Francisco with the outlying gold mines, Texas with its vast lands and ranches, and New York City with bustling commerce and finance in the mid-1800s are vibrant and touchabl
Anyone who enjoys a historical family saga would enjoy this book and the series.
I was given a copy of this book from the author/publisher via Celebrate Lit Tours. I was not required to write a favorable review. All comments and opinions are solely my own.
