About the Book


Book: Uniquely Common

Author: Caryl McAdoo

Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Release Date: April 4, 2019

Steel sharpens steel, but will its sparks ignite unfailing love?

Instead of living a pampered life on the civilized east coast with a new husband, rejection compels Christina Adams westward with her widowed brother and his two daughters. Harboring ulterior motives, Ethan Cord, the man her brother hires to accompany the family, is more a match for her, and he appears almost perfect, but how could she possibly trust her instincts about him when she’d been so wrong about her previous fiancé? Will her past ruin her future?

What if you were engaged to someone and he broke the engagement off in order to marry someone else.  Your brother and his two daughters whom you live with are leaving to travel west.  So the only real choice is for you to travel with them.  This is the situation Christina Adams finds herself in, with the added twist of her brother and his two daughters trying to play matchmaker between herself and Ethan Cord.

From the moment the two meet, I wanted the two to fall in love.  During the pages of the book everything from card games to dancing to shopping and more happen.  The story moves at a great pace and the two daughters add to the story in the form of meddling (done lovingly) and more.  The only character I have to say I did not like was the horrible ex-fiance who had the nerve to break up with Christina through a letter.  On the other hand, that break-up allowed Christina to find the man God planned for her to be with all along.

The idea of traveling west in prairie schooners does not excite Christina but in the course of getting to where they will begin their journey by finding a wagon train to join up with, Christina and Ethan find true love.

This is the first book I have read in this series, but now I plan on starting at the beginning and reading all these books.  While the book is Christian fiction,  it does not slam that in the reader’s face, instead it is done in a way that brings the reader along on their journey.  So check this book out for yourself.

About the Author


Award-winning author Caryl McAdoo prays her story brings God glory, and her best-selling novels—over forty published—delight Christian readers around the world. The prolific writer also enjoys singing the new songs the Lord gives her—listen to a few at YouTube. Sharing four children and eighteen grandsugars with Ron, her high-school-sweetheart-husband of fifty years, she lives 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

I’m so excited about this year’s Lockets and Lace story! I’ve fallen in love with its characters. Asher and his sister Christina, his girls Samantha and Patricia, and his friend, Ethan Cord is certainly a man’s man though he has a checkered past to overcome.

His wife dies in childbirth, leaving him with two little girls, then when his parents pass, too, what’s to tie Asher Adams to New York?

His younger sister Christina is about to be settled into her new life, married and well cared for, so there’s nothing holding the wine merchant back from his dreams of owning a vineyard in the Napa Valley. He decides a new life in the west is the best thing for him and his daughters.

Then at the last minute, the family is turned upside down when the rogue engaged to Christina dumps her and calls the wedding off. Asher’s already sold the brownstone. She suddenly has nowhere to go and no one to watch over her if he leaves.

She never wanted to, but he insists her only choice is to go with them, accompany him and her nieces and make her new life in California . . . and he knows the perfect man for her, too!

One thing I love about this book is that as it draws to its end in Saint Joseph, Missouri, a new young woman is introduced, Remi, and her book—my May ‘Prairie Roses Collection’ story REMI—continues with the Adams family and segues into a new romance!

I hope readers will love that as well, praying my story gives God glory!
