Kelli London doesn't think she can ever be cherished because of past mistakes. She doubts God will ever use her and thinks her dream of songwriting can never come to anything.
Heather Anderson - she had an affair with a married man and now with a drummer for a christian band - only to find out that he has a girlfriend (soon to be fiance) and that she is just a fling...she feels like a tramp and wonders if she can ever be truly remade and cherished.
I really liked 'Cherished'. The story was great and the characters held my attention. I loved the Gospel message throughout and I think it dealt with an issue a lot of people deal with - guilt.
Kelli had an abortion years ago and still lived with the guilt. Heather, after her one-night-stand, realized how in need of Jesus she is and how God will forgive her (Matthew 12:31). But when confronted by Ace (the drummer) she starts to see herself again as who she was, until Logan reminds her that she is a NEW creation
2 Corinthians 5:17 - Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (KJV)
I found out that there is a first book with a lot of the same characters - 'Faithful' - and I plan to read that book as well, because it sounds really good.
I recommend 'Cherished' if you enjoy reading stories that show the Gospel message throughout or need assurance of God's grace.
*Much thanks to Thomas Nelson for providing me a complimentary ebook copy of 'Cherished' through their review program 'Booksneeze'!*
