War changes everything…even their love.
AN APRIL BRIDE is the latest by Lenora Worth, and the latest in a Year of Weddings series. I enjoyed getting to know Stella and Marsh, but felt sorry for the pair with his brain injuries, and trauma from the war. Stella was the practically perfect one in this book while Marsh couldn't even express his love. He truly was a hurting hero and something about him reminded me of someone in my former life that I feel blessed to be free from. Maybe it was the way he worded things. I wanted to tell Stella to run, fast and far.
Most of the book was about her trying to help him remember and assuring each other how committed they are to this wedding, even though he can't even remember her, and then a lot of misunderstandings about wanting to break up, and then they were married. The wedding was over.
I don't know how I feel. Not warm and fuzzy, but more like... okay. Kind of melancholy. Sad. Not the right feelings for the ending for a romance novella anyway. I can't say I didn't like the story. And it was well written. It's just... the feelings are wrong. $3.79. 102 pages.
