Allie left the love of her life at the altar – to save him from a lifetime of heartbreak. 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 dared not repeat the same mistakes with Marcus. 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?
Would you get married on February 14, Valentine’s Day? I don’t think I would, it would seem kind of lovesick, at least for me. Although, I had hoped to get married on our boyfriend-girlfriend anniversary, but it didn’t happen. He he! Well, the author of A February Bride went all out and had another couple in the story wed on Valentine’s Day.
Allie believed in generational curses and wanted to spare Marcus of what might happen in the future, that’s why she became a runaway bride. If that’s so, I wonder why she didn’t distance herself from any man who came her way from the start, and had to wait until the last minute to bolt. Since she knew about it from the Bible, I do hope that she had actively sought the answer to break this curse from the Bible as well. I guess that’s why I didn’t have much compassion for Allie’s plight. The story was alright, might resound with some women who have negative family histories and experiences, yet about to commit to something that requires her 100 percent. This is a great reminder to seek God first. When our hearts are right with Him in faith, everything will fall into place.
