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 really enjoyed this quick read from Kim Cash Tate! With an easy to read writing style you are drawn in from the very first pages of the novel. This book has the theme of forgiveness drawn throughout and as you read, you will see just how powerful forgiveness is in one's life.
The characters are all very true to life in their personalities and the experiences they have. I really enjoyed Cherished and have it's prequel, Faithful, on my To-Be-Read list. Though helpful to read Faithful, to understand backgrounds of characters and such, Cherished also does well as a stand alone. Included in the book is a discussion guide, making Cherished a perfect pick for a Book Club!
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
