Anchor My Heart is a timely romance that reminds us of where we must anchor our hope.

SACRAMENTO, Calif, March 16, 2021 — In her brand new, moving contemporary romance, Anchor My Heart, Sara Beth Williams adeptly depicts the heartbreaking journey toward hope and healing for Matt Lawson. In the aftermath of tragedy, Matt Lawson grapples with debilitating anxiety. The blessings he’d taken for granted—a dream job, a woman he couldn’t wait to spend the rest of his life with, and his God-given musical talent—have all crumbled at his feet. In the ensuing months of grief, he isolates himself in order to conceal his anxiety attacks. Tara Pierce pursues him regardless. Unexpected attraction flares as Tara reaches into the sea of Matt’s grief and helps ground him in reality. But Matt’s not ready to give himself away again.

Fans of Janet W. Ferguson, Elizabeth Maddrey and Kari Trumbo will enjoy this Contemporary Christian romance that delves into honest depictions of mental health and the journey toward finding healing, peace and hope.

“In Anchor My Heart, Sara Beth Williams goes beyond two characters finding a second chance at love, by tackling difficult subjects like friendship, grief, and debilitating anxiety with sensitivity as we walk through troubled waters with these lovable characters.” Contemporary Christian Romance author, Melony Teague, Author of A Promise to Keep.

“Bring your tissues! Anchor My Heart faces honestly the painful and individualistic processes of grief. Williams’ vivid descriptions of the psychological and physical consequences of grief are moving and realistic. [Williams] highlights the importance of community in bringing healing through the lived experience of walking through grief together. The characters in Anchor My Heart are multidimensional and believable. A must read!” Multi-genre, Award winning author Donna E. Lane, Ph.D.

“Humans are fallible and imperfect. My goal as I began writing toward publication was to write stories about authentic characters experiencing real life issues from a Christian worldview. I think it’s important to acknowledge that we as humans don’t have it altogether.” American Christian Fiction Writers interview with Sara Beth Williams.

Anchor My Heart released March 16, 2021 and is available on along with Williams’ previous contemporary romances including her 2020 Selah Award finalist A Worthy Heart. You can find more Anchor My Heart endorsements, highlights, and an author biography at
