Allie left the love of her life at the altar – to save him from a lifetime of heartbreak. When a Valentine’s Day wedding brings them back together, she struggles against her family’s destructive history. Can Allie ever realize that a marriage is so much more than a wedding dress?
History repeats itself when Allie Andrews escapes the church on her wedding day – in the same dress passed down for generations and worn by all the women in her family – women with a long history of failed marriages. Allie loves Marcus, but fears she’s destined to repeat her family’s mistakes. She can’t bear to hurt Marcus worse. Marcus Hall never stopped loving Allie and can only think of one reason she left him at the altar – him. When the two are thrown together for his sister’s Valentine’s Day wedding, he discovers the truth and realizes their story might be far from over. Can Allie shuck expectation and discover who she is as a bride and in the Bride of Christ? And if she ever walks down the aisle, what dress will she wear?
As the third installment of A Year of Weddings, Betsy St. Amant’s charming “A February Bride” is another delightful afternoon read. Fast-paced due to its novella format, this story kept me wondering how the couple would return to the altar. With a sweet and sentimental conclusion, I couldn’t help but shed a couple tears. As with “A January Bride,” this novella can be read on its own, and again, I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in inspirational romance and another free afternoon. I greatly appreciate Booksneeze for providing me with this free copy and the opportunity to write an honest review.
