The Bedwarmer's Son

By Caryl McAdoo


In 1928 Georgia, a black man who kills a white man is automatically guilty, but the bedwarmer’s son, an ex-slave, is no normal black man. And the dead white man is his half-brother. Once his lily-white lawyer lady learns the truth, everything changes. Can she save him from swinging? Will the bedwarmer murder the one she’s been bought to serve? From the antebellum South, come travel the dusty trails of Jim Crowe Dalton, Georgia with slave and master, saint and sinner. See if God is really big enough, if He truly cares about His children. McAdoo has done it again, this time in a brand new way. A delightful morsel for the palates of Christian readers world round.

Book Takeaway:

God doesn't judge men by the color of their skin, and man shouldn't either.

Why the author wrote this book:

THE BEDWARMER’S SON has quite an insistent story of how it came about…its inspiration. I started writing a contemporary for my Red River Romance series based on the idea of The Voice titled THE PITCH. Instead of the next big singing sensation, my teams, filmed for the upcoming TV show, are looking for the next great American novelist. To write that story, as my agent/editor teams visit writers’ conferences across the nation, I needed many book titles and skeletal premises for the authors to pitch. One such title was THE BEDWARMER’S SON.
But after I left that project to finish a different story, the title would not leave me alone. It really wanted to be written badly, and let me know in a persistent way. And so the inspiration to write it appeared at least in part to be, preservation of sanity. Or you could say it came from obedience to God, because this had to be the one He wanted me to write next.
