An April Bride by Lenora Worth

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Lenora Worth and her publisher for sending me a copy of "An April Bride" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

In the sweet romantic novella, “An April Bride” by Lenora Worth, it appears that Stella may not get her “Happily Ever After” when her fiancé, Marshall is involved in an explosion and returns home from military service with PTSD and lots of holes in his memory.  His memory is returning a little bit at a time, but will Marsh remember his love for Stella before they are scheduled to walk down the aisle?

This story brought tears to my eyes more than once.  The frustration of not being able to count on plans made really put me in touch with what it means to die to self.  It’s difficult to do, but if we keep our eyes focused on Christ, He will always lead us down the right path.  The story is grounded in Christian faith – I really enjoy that.  Some of the narrative and dialog doesn’t flow, causing the minor interruption of having to re-read to grasp where the story is going or thinking about why a seemingly new concept was introduced at that specific moment, but the majority of the tale reads with ease.
