About the book:
How can she believe God cherishes her when she can't forgive herself?
Kelli London once dreamed of being a songwriter. As crazy as it seemed, she hoped that God would use the lyrics that came to her while she slept. She dreamed about Brian too, that the love they shared would be a forever kind of love. But choices she'll forever regret upended her hope . . . and turned her dreams to dust. When those dreams come knocking once more, she's forced to deal with the pain of the past.
Heather Anderson's life has spun out of control—first, an affair with a married man, then a one-night stand with the drummer of a popular Christian band that left her devastated. Broken and alone, she cried out to the only One who can save her. And He did. But that's just the beginning, because now she must leave behind the only life she's ever known.
Two women with shame-filled pasts form an unlikely friendship. What does God's forgiveness look like for them? Will they ever believe that He loves them . . . and can still offer them a life where they are cherished?
I enjoyed this book very much. I was able to connect with the characters and feel their emotions right along with them. Being a somewhat new follower of Christ myself it was a great read for me to see how these women prayed together. I need to pray more. I don't use prayer as often as I should. I'm sure most of us have at some point in our lives questioned how God could forgive us for the awful things that we have done - this book is great at showing His everlasting love.
I didn't realize Cherished is the second book in a series. The first book is called 'Faithful'. I will look for it, as I'd like to read the characters stories from the beginning.
I received this book from BookSneeze.com as part of their book review blogger program in exchange for an honest review whether it be negative or positive. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
