SPRING BRIDES : THREE NOVELLAS
Happily ever after begins today. The honor of your presence is requested at three spring weddings ...
A March Bride by Rachel Hauck
Susanna Truitt (Once Upon a Prince) is three weeks from royalty. She'll soon marry King Nathaniel II of Brighton Kingdom. But when the government insists she renounce her American citizenship before the wedding, coupled with the lack of involvement by family and friends, Susanna's heart begins to doubt whether this marriage is God's plan for her.
An April Bride by Lenora Worth
Bride-to-be Stella Carson cannot wait another day to marry soldier Marshall Henderson. But when Marshall returns home to Louisiana, it becomes clear to them both that he is not the man he used to be. With only weeks until the wedding, Stella and Marshall must choose between a marriage built on the past and faith in long-ago love or a very different future than the one Stella imagined.
A May Bride by Meg Moseley
Ellie Martin, a country girl living in Atlanta, has dreamed of a traditional wedding all her life, but she's missing a key ingredient to her plans for the future: a groom. Then Ellie meets Gray Whitby-at a wedding of all places. But when Ellie jeopardizes her own future for the sake of her sister, Gray feels like he'll always be second to Ellie's family. Can Ellie and Gray find their own way together amidst the demands and perceptions of others, or will their romance end before it has truly begun?
These novellas were originally released as individual ebooks in 2014. I love that Zondervan has compiled the whole year's worth into four books, divided by season. Hoorah for this spring collection -- not only because the stories are completely captivating, but because it brought the hope of spring as well.
A March Bride by Rachel Hauck -- Amazing! I haven't read Once Upon a Prince but I got right into the story without any problem. I think fans of the book will get an even bigger thrill out of this little hiccup in Nathaniel and Susanna's love story. It is rife with angst as they struggle to mesh their lives and expectations. A beautiful and profound faith message makes this an even richer read.
An April Bride by Lenora Worth -- This one really tugged at my heart. Such a huge subject to tackle in a novella and yet the author does an incredible job of creating a deep and moving love story around very complicated circumstances. I can't say more without posting spoilers but this novella really made an impact on me.
A May Bride by Meg Moseley -- A memorable (and very creative) first meet had me grinning. I knew right away that Ellie and Gray were meant for each other, but Moseley takes them on a bumpy ride to matrimony. There's grit and angst aplenty as these two learn to give more than take as they face the dynamics of becoming a couple.
