Caryl McAdoo's Talks Mighty on the Coffee Corner
Maybe they wouldn’t even categorize it as a romance! But their history isn’t totally skipped over. She’s an author like her MayMee (grandmother, the dime novelist May Meriwether in Book Three, Hope Reborn), and so she writes her and Nathaniel’s love story as a part of this novel, but it’s all in the past as Mighty to Save opens with him overseas serving in World War One. That’s a whole ‘nother no-no in the scheme of ‘traditional’ romances, you are not supposed to separate your hero and heroine very long at all.
Renee: Well, war has a way of separating people, doesn't it? Do you have a favorite part in Mighty to Save?
Caryl: My favorite part of this story are the scenes on Bonnie Brae Street where the Azuza Street Revival got its start, and where dear Charley who I’ve loved since his introduction in Book Two, Hearts Stolen finally receives Christ as his Savior and surrenders to a call placed on his life to evangelize. Those glory-bump-producing scenes are dear to my heart as God’s Holy Spirit moves on mens’ hearts and so many folks are healed proving that God’s power and promises were not only for the First Church. We don’t “preach” in the book like I just did, but that’s why that section is my favorite!
Renee: Oh wow. Charley on Bonnie Brae. I'll have to remember that. I love the names of your books, by the way. How do you pick your titles?
