War changes everything . . . even their love.
Bride-to-be Stella Carson can’t wait to marry her longtime sweetheart Marshall Henderson. But Marshall has been away serving his country and has suffered a head wound. After being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, he has distanced himself from Stella, asking her not to visit him in a Washington, D.C., hospital. Marshall returns to Louisiana just four weeks before the wedding, but as the big day draws near, Stella wonders if the man she’s loved for most of her life has become someone else.
Can true love conquer all for Stella and Marshall, even the tragedy of war?
Reading An April Bride made thoughts of what ifs race through my head. What if my hubby Rix cannot remember me, how will I make him remember and fall in love with me again? What if I lost my memory, would he try to win my heart back? And, would I still do my duty to my husband and children, even if I feel as if I’m a different person? If Stella’s situation would happen to me, I, too, would be very confused and disheartened. I would not be so strong and full of faith, as Marshall described Stella. I would definitely need God’s help for making a miracle out of my situation. Marshall sure needed that help and it seems he’s relying too much on his own capability. I hope he had acknowledged God’s work in the positive changes he went through. The story was just so-so and didn’t make too much of an impact either romantically or spiritually.
