Cherished by Kim Cash Tate

A novel of unconditional love

 image001Having read Kim Tate’s previous book Faithful, I was excited about reading her new novel Cherished and I was not disappointed. Mrs. Tate does an excellent job of exploring the challenges of real life and faith. Through her latest book readers will be forced to examine their own lives for areas of unforgiveness  and evidence of them fully accepting God’s unconditional love.  Even when we know what God’s Word says, its often hard to forgive ourselves and accept that we are His beloved.

The central storyline focuses on Kelli London, a single sister trying to bury the pain and guilt of an abortion she had in her teens, and Brian, her high school sweetheart. However, readers also reunited with other characters like Heather, Cyd and Dana from Faithful. It was pleasure to get reacquainted with each of these characters.

No matter one’s walk of life, I believe that readers can identify with having felt unusable and that a dream was lost. Below is one my favorite quotes from the book: 

For years she thought her dreams had turned to dust-dreams of music, dreams of future with Brian. God had brought the dreams back, but in ways she never could have imagined…out of a pain she never thought she could endure. Would she had dreamed those dreams, had she known? pg. 305

Indeed this book is about unconditional love, acceptance, God’s grace, mercy and restoration. Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and my only criticism was how neatly everything seem to wrap up in the end, which I don’t believe is always the case in life.
