God always has a good plan for the righteous. Sin fills the world with violence, but faith carries Noah and his family above the flood through the storm. In the harshness of Mount Ararat where they disembark, nothing compares to the lushness of Adam’s Valley—their home left behind. And troubles surviving the thirteen months on the Ark can’t match the struggles they face to forge new lives in a hard land where the mist no longer rises up every evening…where instead of a protective covering cloud of water above, the brutal sun beats down and unpredictable storms batter the inhabitants. Still, the Lord has given the sons of Noah a mandate. Replenish the Earth.
Noah studied Shem’s wife until she realized it and offered a weak smile.
“Daughter, is something troubling you?”
She ducked her chin and shook her head.
Her husband put his arm around her shoulder. “The Lord showed her Nod last night in a vision.”
She looked up, her head still shaking a short, rapid no or as though trying to rid the images from her mind’s eye. “Oh, Father, it was horrible. They were climbing over each other, trying to get to higher ground. The strong pulled the weak back down, stepping over the women and babies. I don’t know why….” Her eyes brimmed full, and a tear rolled down her cheek.
“Sweet Jemri, I’m so sorry.” Mother hurried to her and hugged the girl from behind.
“I am, too, but also, I’m thankful the Lord brought us here, saved us from the flood.” She managed a weak smile. “Before I saw Nod, I dreamed of the giant who saved Varsi and me.” She glanced across the table to her twin. “Friend goes by Centurion. He’s an angel of the host, and has great wings.” She held her arms up and out. “Twice this big. He took me up high into the sky and through a sparkling blue circle of light that opened when he sang three notes. It opened to a place where the angels war with songs.”
“Grandfather Enoch spoke of it being the second heaven.” Noah held a hand out to his beloved.
Caryl McAdoo has retold the familiar Genesis flood account with clarity and sensitivity. While remaining faithful to the King James Version, the human story beneath the print page comes alive drawing the reader into the pathos and joys of real breathing people faced with the most devastating natural disaster ever known in human history, one which survives in the mythology of every culture and race, but which is most fully and literally told in the pages of the Bible. This reviewer loved this segment of The Generations Series and heartily recommends the whole work.
--Cass Wessel, multi-published author of devotionals
Replenish the Earth is the third installment in The Generations series, and I loved it just as much as I did the first two. Caryl has taken the story of Noah and the flood and written it in such a way to capture the emotions and feelings of Noah and his family that leaves the reader feeling as if you are living the story with them and experiencing first hand their trials and victories and the working of God in their lives. This book is a wonderful addition to an excellent series that I definitely recommend. This is an amazing series that has really enabled readers to see these stories in a new and wonderful light. Caryl has really brought them to life.

Bio: Caryl McAdoo currently writes three series: the historical Christian ‘Texas Romance’; a contemporary ‘Red River Romance’; and The Generations, her Biblical fiction. The best-selling novelist loves singing new songs the Lord gives her, and she paints. 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 sixteen grandsugars life’s biggest blessings believing all good things come from God. Praying her story gives God glory, she hopes each one will also minister His love, mercy, and grace to its readers. Caryl and Ron live in Clarksville, the county seat, in the far northeast corner of the Lone Star State with two grandsons, Christian and Benjamen.
