Publisher's Summary

Race Spencer leads a lonely life out west, until he stumbles upon Rebecca Morgan, the only survivor of a terrifying robbery. Sweeping the helpless beauty into his powerful arms, Race carries her away to safety. Rebecca's life is no longer in danger, but her virtue is decidedly threatened. Race arouses feelings in her she never knew she could experience, especially toward such a hardened man. The pulse-quickening tale of a former gunslinger and the earthly angel who falls into his lap, Cherish is compelling from beginning to end. A sparkling narration by Ruth Ann Phimister enriches this story of two lost souls searching for new beginnings and finding one another.

New York Times best-selling author Catherine Anderson is considered one of the world's greatest romance novelists. A nine-time winner of the Kiss Award, her books are popular and critical successes.

    "A Good Romance, But:"

    Overall I liked the book, with the caveat that I read romances when I want something that requires only half a brain to get the plot. Good points are: Race is all you want a guy to be in a romance and more! He's so sweet you'll want him for yourself. Also he's just as emotional as Rebecca, just in a different way. Bad points: the book has Anderson's MO all over it so there are no surprises. The heroine is exceptionally weak and helpless throughout most of the book and can wear on the nerves -- but she does make up for it in the end. Serious mis-representation of quakerism! Quakers are strongly non-violent, but almost nothing else in Anderson's portrayal was accurate especially about them being phenatical christians. Read this if you want easy mindless entertainment.

    "Could have been half the time!"

    I did not like this book. I read it through to see if it would get better. There were some ok moments but God, if the heroine could be any more stupid and week, and the hero more wise and powerful. How could the author write of a woman so pitiful.

    "EXCELLENT"

    I ALWAYS ENJOY CATHERINE ANDERSON. THIS IS A SWEET STORY. THE NARRATOR, HOWEVER, WAS NOT THE BEST - YOU CAN HEAR HER SWALLOWING WHICH I FOUND ANNOYING.

    "A good western..."

    the heroine is a little silly a couple of scenes but that's just her character. I've listened to this one several times over the years.

    "Disappointed by following other reviewers feedback"
    What disappointed you about Cherish?

    The story was rather lame.


    What was most disappointing about Catherine Anderson’s story?

    The story has era inconsistencies. It wasn't spread over the time in a realistic manner, for example, Rebecca's ability to come in and out of shock induced catatonic states with little effort or time. Also, she is able to go from Bible thumper to going along with strange men after the trauma of her family's death in a couple of days.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Spacing out the story realistically and making the dialog less juvenile.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Almost immediate disappointment in my purchase.

    "Rambles"

    Some where in this book I feel there is a good story line. However, it was hard for me to continue to listen to the story to find it. Rebecca was all over the place she seemed whinney and self absorbed.
    Not my favorite book of Catherine Andersons...

    "Disappointing"

    I found the 'heroine' irritating. If I'd have been the hero I'd have dumped her halfway through the book. Sorry folks, but I didn't really care what happened to her in the end.
