Review: A February Bride by Betsy St. Amant

My Rating: 3 stars

Synopsis from

In 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?

My Review

I loved the sweet characters in this book; they seem like people I would be friends with. I didn't think the bride's reason for ditching the man she was still in love with was delved into deeply enough. Her fear seemed superficial and irrational, making me feel that the storyline was not completely believable. I also had a hard time believing the groom had never contacted her or asked her why, even though she was "the love of his life." I did enjoy the interactions of the main characters once they were talking again... and the ending was pretty fun.

  1. I completely agree with your review! I couldn't figure out what exactly I didn't like about the story, but you said it perfectly. Her fear did seem superficial and there were things in the story that felt unbelievable. Like you, I did think the ending was fun. :)
