Searching For Roots
Accept Me by Marion Ueckermann is a most delightful contemporary Christian novel and part of the Chapel Cove Romance series. It can be read as a stand-alone but I enjoyed meeting up with familiar faces.
Marion Ueckermann always writes novels that warm and soothe the soul. She draws characters that always move into my heart.
The novel explores the impact of shifting foundations on a life. When all that felt familiar and all that we built our lives on is shaken to the core, what do we do? “If she wasn’t still angry at God, she’d have shot a prayer to heaven.” When life throws us a curve ball, we either move closer to God or further away but He never moves away from us. We need to “let heaven give you the hope you need.” God can take our anger at situations. We need to give our anger to Him and exchange it for His peace. We need to know that “even when we can’t see it, God is good.” God is faithful and He will patiently wait for our anger to subside.
Our inheritance is importance. We all want to know where we come from.
Adoption is a theme which reminds the reader that we are all adopted into God’s family. Our birth parents may reject us but our heavenly Father never will.
The novel has the twin themes of rescue and healing. God rescues us from our situations and heals our hurts.
There is a wonderful community atmosphere in Chapel Cove. The residents take strangers under their wings and welcome them in. Hearts and lives receive love, hope and healing.
As a character searches for their roots to find out where they belong, they receive an epiphany – “With God at her side, anywhere was home.”
I adored Accept Me. It was a charming read – a hug in a book. I loved it. I always love Marion Ueckermann’s novels. If you have not read one, you are missing out.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
