Review: A February Bride by Betsy St. Amant

History repeats itself when this bride runs out of the church on her wedding day - in the same dress that had been passed down for generations and worn by her mom, grandma and great-grandmother who also ran out of their weddings.

The heroine struggles to break destructive cycles of the past.

Can this bride shuck expectation and discover who SHE is as a bride and in the Bride of Christ?

And if she finally walks down the aisle, what dress will she be wearing?



5 Words: Sweet, love, mistakes, marriage, restoration.

This was another sweet, short read in the A Year of Weddings series.

But A February Bride felt somewhat rushed, particularly towards the ending. I thought I had another 10% to go but there wasn't, there was a chapter sample for the first in the series (seriously?) which was a little disappointing. I had just started to really get into this.

Nonetheless, I did enjoy this. I just feel that it didn't fulfil its potential. I liked Allie and her love of all things turquoise and antique, but so much more could have been done with her. Instead of all of the parties and showers she went to it would have been nicer to see more of her rather than the extravagant lifestyle her friends lead.
