Warming Your Heart And Soul
I Take You by Marion Ueckermann is the most delightful contemporary Christian novel that will leave you feeling good and smiling. It is part of the Save The Date Anthology.
The leading lady has always dreamed of a fairy tale wedding until she learns of a terrible secret and then her priority changes. Weddings are less about spending vast sums of money on one day and much more about the years that follow. Sometimes it is the simplest things that are the most magical.
There is the theme of forgiveness. Sometimes in life our hurt and pain runs deep. We cannot forgive in our own strength but need to lean on God and His strength in order to forgive. If we withhold forgiveness we risk becoming bitter and then dwelling in the land of regret. We must forgive because we have been forgiven.
Marion Ueckermann has created a wonderful set of characters who are realistically flawed and likable. We can empathise with a character who struggles with forgiveness as we ‘feel’ the emotional tugs.
As well as teaching us godly lessons, the story is highly amusing at times. Who can forget the antics of an Alpaca called Mr Darcy at a wedding and also the choice of bridal footware?
I Take You is a perfectly charming read that will warm your heart and soul.
