A Little Lower than the Angels: Book Giveaway

 Bringing you another awesome book giveaway! :) Read what the author, Caryl McAdoo, has to say about her book.
 
A Little Lower than the Angels
By Caryl McAdoo


This story has been ruminating for twenty years. It’s been written and rewritten may times in those decades. Then suddenly….
It was time!
A Little Lower Than the Angels is an age old story everyone knows—Adam and Eve in the garden, but it takes a look at earth’s first man from a way different perspective. I absolutely love being creative! I sing new songs and paint with watercolors and oils, and design at PicMonkey. (I’ve only recently found that site and have so much fun there!) I enjoy cooking and playing with recipes. I garden with flowers and stone and especially love recycling and crafting ordinary items into new uses. So I applied imagination to the Garden of Eden’s story.
The novella—136 pages—follows three parallel storylines. It opens with a blood sacrifice at the summit of  God’s Mountain where Cain’s offering is rejected. Anger, jealousy, and a hurt pride usher in the world’s first murder. Marked and cursed to wander, the eldest twin grabs his sister and leaves the only home he’s ever known. He travels east past Eden to the land of Nod. One storyline stays with Cain and Sheriah as evil endlessly tempts him and the distance between him and his fathers, both Heavenly and earthly, grows.
Imagine the tragedy unfolding in Adam’s Valley. His mother loses all her children in one day. She’s never seen a dead human, and the still, lifeless body she finds is her son! Abel’s skin is cold and his eyes void of sparkle. And worse, Adam wants to plant him! Put him into the ground and cover him! She blames herself. How can she and the man she loves start all over? So the second storyline stays right there in Adam’s Valley, and chronicles the broken lives of the first couple.
Then there’s Abel, the murdered brother, who’s more than a bit perplexed. One heartbeat he’s speaking with his brother, the next, he’s being carried by winged men to a beautiful place the old cherub named Namrel tells him is called Paradise. It reminds him of the Garden of Eden his father and mother had told stories about. His new mentor answers all his questions and teaches him what he needs to know. Abel especially loves to hear of  the wars being fought in the Second Heaven by the angels.
Besides the first of the Cherubim, readers will meet an archangel, Gabriel, and Centurion last angel of the host. Find out how eternal spirits who can’t die war. How do they decide who wins or loses? And readers meet Lion and Lamb, too. I’m a firm believer animals make every story better! These two definitely play great roles in the story of the beginning of mankind.
A Little Lower Than the Angels is a book not likely to be soon forgotten.

BIO:
With thirteen titles released by six publishers, Simon & Schuster author Caryl McAdoo is excited about her new Biblical fiction series The Generations Volume one, A LITTLE LOWER THAN THE ANGELS, recently debuted to wide acclaim. She enjoys success with her historical Christian Texas romance series, too: VOW UNBROKEN (1832 / March 2014), book two HEARTS STOLEN (1844 / September, 2014), and book three HOPE REBORN (1850 / January 2015). The novelist also edits, paints, and writes new songs. In 2008, she and her high school sweetheart-husband Ron moved from the DFW area—home for fifty-five years—to the woods of Red River County. Caryl counts four children and fourteen grandsugars as life’s biggest blessings, believing all good things come from God. Praying her story gives God glory, she hopes the books will also minister His love, mercy, and grace to all their readers. Caryl and Ron live in Clarksville, the county seat, in the far northeast corner of the Lone Star State.
