A May Bride ( A Year of Weddings Novella) by Meg Moseley ISBN 9780310338703 Zondervan

A May Bride, a novella by Meg Moseley, is a contemporary romance story. Ellie and Gray are two very different people who quickly fall in love and become engaged. Ellie is the daughter of a controlling and narrow minded mother. None the less, Ellie loves her mother and does her best to maintain a relationship with this difficult woman. Gray’s parents are easy going people and as a result, so is he. However, his love for Ellie is tested by the drama her mother creates. Eventually, things come to a head and the couple’s future is uncertain. Will Ellie have to choose between Gray and her family? I found this to be a well written story about loyalty and commitment. The characters have to look inward and to make important decisions. As a result, they are easy to relate to. The story moves smoothly and is easy to read.

An April Bride (A Year of Weddings Novella) by Lenora Worth ISBN 9780310338697 Zondervan

An April Bride, the novella by Lenora Worth, is about two people who have known each other since childhood. Stella and Marshall fell in love, became engaged and bought a house. However, due to injuries while in the military, Marshall doesn’t remember much of this. Their wedding is just weeks away and Marshall is an honorable man. He wants to go ahead with the wedding. Stella does her best to be patient with him and tries to help him regain his memories. She struggles-can she marry a man who doesn’t remember her?
The couple is surrounded by loving families and good friends who support them without reservation. Yet, Stella has her doubts as to whether she and Marshall will have the marriage they had once envisioned. Marshall is plagued by a recurring nightmare that he is unable to understand.
This is a story packed with emotion and faith. The characters are endearing and I found myself hoping that they would be able to make a life for themselves together. This is a well written story that is worth reading.
