A March Bride, by Rachel Hauck, is the fourth wedding story in the A Year of Weddings Novella series. It tells the story of Susanna Truitt of Georgia and King Nathaniel II of Brighton. The two must deal with governmental rules, family illnesses, and paparazzi in order to have the wedding of their dreams. This, however, proves to be more difficult then they realized.
Having already fought to change an ancient law in order to be allowed to marry Susanna and retain his throne, Nathaniel is reluctant to tell her of the latest requirement from the Brighton government. When Susanna learns that she must relinquish her American citizenship and become a citizen of Brighton in order to marry her king, she begins to doubt whether this is God’s will for her life. With her grandmother too ill to travel and her pregnant best friend on bed rest, Susanna travels back to Georgia both to think and pray. Nathaniel soon follows but has to risk everything he has worked for in order to marry her.
I enjoyed this book. It was charming and full of self-sacrifice. I also appreciated the strong family theme in this story. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a Christian romance story.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
