Yet another fabulous book by Catherine Anderson. Rebecca is the only survivor of an attack on her traveling family to Santa Fe. She witnesses many ungodly acts and goes into shock then is discovered and rescued by Race Spencer. Race falls in love on sight and vows to protect Rebecca no matter what the cost. This is a wonderful story that makes you feel as if you are experiencing it yourself. Catherine is my favorite author...her stories are perfectly told and they suck you right in. Fabulous Book!!

Cherish tells a very special kind of story.The book's overview describes pay Rebecca as the Angel. However, I view Race as the Angel. He rescued Rebecca when she was in distress. He displayed sensitivity, and patience despite her ingrained inhibitions. He fell in love with her and was ready to die for her. His past history as a gunslinger enabled him and prepared him with the diligence, fortitude, and honor necessary to secure their future.
This is an earlier Catherine Anderson that I missed. It's a very enjoyable read.

Another great book by Catherine Anderson. This story in based back in the mid 1800's in Colorado. It is a story of a Quaker girl who is the sole surviver of an attack on the wagon train she is in as her Quaker Community leave one settlement to start a new settlement in Santa Fe. Although it is a love story, there is also a mystery to the story as well. Great read and wonderful story of friendship and honesty from the man who finds, rescues, and protects her through the journey of finding her Quaker Community. A great western read.

This story starts out with two polar opposites: Rebecca Morgan has lived in a cloistered environment of like-minded religious people and Race Spencer is an uneducated former gunslinger, afraid of little or nothing.

They meet after robbers have attacked and killed all of the religious folks except Rebecca (who ran away and hid). Saving Rebecca will come back and bite Race because now the robbers are determined to kill and maim until they get Rebecca's money. More than 1/2 of Race's cattle are killed and then the robbers start to pick off Race's employees.

After a slow start, this novel picks up momentum as Race and Rebecca find common ground. There were a couple of things that didn't ring true, but otherwise, this is a unique story that keeps the reader turning the pages.
