Never the Bride
Since she was young Jessie Stone has religiously journaled about the perfect marriage proposals, her perfect husband, the perfect wedding and the perfect marriage.
But at 34 years of age, she still hadn't gotten anything she dreamed of. She just hopelessly watch as other couples got their dream weddings and such, while she was just a bridesmaid.
Until one day God showed up!
What will it take to convince her that God has a better plan for her than she could ever dream up?
This book actually hit on a few personal spots for me. I really related to Jessie in so many ways it was a little scary.
But in the end, it helped.
At the beginning of the story Jessi is so uptight and worried about everything being perfect but God shows here that she just need to have faith in him and everything will work out the way it should.
I think everyone struggles with faith in God and it usually gets in his way.
As far as , the writing goes in this book it was a little dry and some places and was a little hard to get in to. But over all it wasn't the worse book ever written either!
This book was both a quick and slow read, in the beginning it was hard to get into and seemed like it took forever to get to half way point but once you were there I couldn't put it down!
I'd recommend it to anyone that love romance novels ( despite Jessie's lack of love life there is plenty of romance! ), especially those that like Christan Romance Novels.
