A February Bride: A Year of Weddings Novella, by Betsy St. Amant, is a wonderful story. It tells of a situation in which someone feels bound to their family’s history, unable to shed their reputation and attitudes.
Allie Andrews loves Marcus Hall and is about to marry him when she notices a tear in her wedding dress. Reminded of the “curse” on her family of short marriages and many divorces, she runs away, thinking she has saved Marcus from a heartbreaking divorce later on. When her best friend, Marcus’ sister, asks her to be a maid of honor at her wedding four months later, she finds herself face to face with him once again. Marcus still loves Allie and knows he should move on with his life, but cannot seem to completely walk away from her. When his mother reveals a repaired and remade wedding dress, Allie knows what she must do to remedy the situation.
I enjoyed reading this short story. Its characters were loyal and had a consistent Christian attitude. I especially liked the Hall family and their forgiving attitudes.
I would recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a good Christian romance.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
