“A March Bride” by Rachel Hauck

A nice companion to “Once Upon a Prince”, this novella recounts the wedding jitters and their resolution of the American (formerly of Georgia) Susanna Truitt and her groom to be King Nathaniel II. The story itself stayed true to the characters, rehashed (one last time) the spiritual issues the main characters were facing, and described not one, but two romantic weddings.

I strongly suggest reading the full novel first, or the concerns mentioned in the novella will take away from the growth of the characters (and revelations about their histories) as portrayed in the novel.

I also strongly advise against adding discussion questions. Why? Because it ruins the book…especially one that edges on fairy-tale romance. And it insults the readers: we understood the themes just from reading the book and can discuss them among ourselves without help. I imagine it also insults the author (wasn’t I clear enough when discussing the themes in my novel?).

Thank you to NetGalley (https://www.netgalley.com/) and Zondervan for providing me with a copy of this novella to read and review.
