Cherish was an extraordinarily beautiful book about overcoming fears and learning to deal with the pain of loss.
Set in the 19th century Rebecca Morgan is the sole survivor of an outlaw attack. She is rescued by Race Spencer an ex gunslinger who happened to be passing by with his men. Race was intrigued by this ivory skinned angel and found he was doing everything in his power to protect as well as help Rebecca get on with her life. Rebecca had no one after the slaughter of her family and Race became her guardian angel, but despite how protected she felt with him she was also afraid of him. She was afraid of the feelings she got when near him and of what might happen if she stayed by him.
I loved this story and all of its characters, especially Race and Rebecca. Rebecca was such a sweet and innocent character that you couldn’t help, but see her as the angel that Race believed her to be. Race was a little rough around the edges with his own past heartaches which only made his character that much more endearing. Reading of how their love story unfolds and how they each grow and learn from each other brought a tear to my eye and made my heart swell with happiness. Their love scene was also very sweet and tender. To find out how this love story unfolds and meet some of these colorful characters check out “Cherish” Catherine Anderson
