“A June Bride” by Marybeth Whalen

To be honest I found this novella confusing throughout. Perhaps it was just the heroine’s own confusion rubbing off, but several things left me feeling it as well—the erratic pacing, stilted dialogue, vague characters, and incomplete plot line, to name the main ones.

I think the truths the author wanted to convey were gold. Unfortunately, they were the kind of gold you have to pan to find. Instead of a simple box holding an elegant ring, the reader is left to dig through the mire of the heroine’s confusion and fears, and sift through the story to find the gold dust of spiritual development which signals the turning point of her life and, unfortunately, the rapid closure of the book.

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