Cherish Me by Autumn Macarthur


 Cherish Me by Autumn Macarthur is a delightful Christian contemporary romance. It is the third book in the Chapel Cove series but can be read as a stand-alone.

Autumn Macarthur always writes novels that wrap themselves around the reader with their warm and welcoming atmosphere. The community seems to reach out from the pages to encompass the reader. Small town living means everyone pulls together. There are no secrets just warm welcomes.

Words spoken over us remain. “The memory of being called ugly, of feeling ugly, and of wanting so badly not to be ugly.” We believe what others say of us when really we should be listening to what God says. His opinion is the only one that matters. There are times when the reader’s heart breaks. “A familiar chorus of put-me-downs echoed in her head.” No matter how old we are, old hurts remain if we do not deal with them. We need to hand our hurts to God and live loved. “Believe Jesus really does love me, even if my mom doesn’t.”

Innamorta by Autumn Macarthur

Never Too Old

Innamorta by Autumn Macarthur is the most charming Christian romantic novella. It is the tenth book in A Tuscan Legacy series which I adore but it can be read as a stand-alone.

No matter how old you are, you can still dream big. While you still have breath, God’s not finished with you yet. Outside you may look eighty whilst inside you feel eighteen. You are never too old to rekindle a love.

His Healing Touch by Autumn Macarthur

Amazing Grace

His Healing Touch by Autumn Macarthur is a delightfully warm Christian romance. It is the second book in the Sweetapple Falls series but can be read as a stand-alone.

The novel’s main themes are love, loss and grief. Loss and grief can consume and strangle the love out of us if we let them. Living in the past, focusing on our losses is not living the life God intended for us. The past is dead. We need to learn to live again. We need a purpose and we need to trust again.

In our hurt and pain, we may lose sight of God. “Hard to keep believing ‘Jesus Loves Me This I Know’ when real life smacked you in the face.” Life hurts but Jesus is bigger than our hurts. He asks us to love and trust Him. Whatever life throws at us, Jesus promises to walk beside us every step of the way.

Great love permeates the novel. There is a wonderful warm community atmosphere as hearts and homes are thrown open. The church is not just a building the church is carried inside believers wherever we go. “Wherever people worshipped God became a church.”

Together For Christmas by Autumn Macarthur is a delightful set of four of her books. All the stories are delightful with similar themes and revealing the heart of God.

A Model Bride will also touch the reader’s  heart – prompting an examination of one’s personal faith. As the Father’s heart is revealed within the novel, the reader is journeying too – hopefully towards a deeper faith and trust in God. It can be read just for surface value, as the delightful story will leave the reader with a smile on their face and a warm fuzzy feeling in their heart. Or delve deeper, and strengthen your own personal faith in God.
