# A February Bride # Betsy St Amant

Book Review: A February Bride

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?
I've read a number of the novellas in this series and still, the opening to this book had me going, "Woah..what just happened there?" At first, I loved the idea of a wedding dress being passed down through the generations, but it didn't take me long to realize just how it could make a girl feel if that dress was tied to nothing but failure and bad memories. Thank goodness for Marcus' sister and her loving nature! I'm not going to give anything away here, but let's just say that her idea of wedding preparation had me laughing and seeing how his family never stopped loving her warmed my heart. This series is almost over, but it's never too late to pick up a good book.
