There are many women like me who are interested in reading about or watching what goes on in a royal family: what they wear, whether they are expecting the next heir, how the royal couples got together, the causes they are advocating, etc. That's how it was like while reading A March Bride. I got to read the headlines of the King and Susanna's journey to wedded bliss. My mind's eye was watching the royal gatherings, in addition to that, I knew what was Susanna's, a commoner, opinion on them. I felt her qualms about giving up so much, like her privacy, just so she could fit into the royal life.
King Nathaniel's plan to win the heart of his bride was romantic. The voicing out of their feelings was too mushy, though. There was a challenge they faced near the end, which I thought was concluded very abruptly. I wished that the author gave readers even more details about their courtship even if this was a part of Rachel Hauck's other books. Like Susanna, I sometimes question if my existence is part of God's plan, but God will provide an answer. A March Bride also reminded me that "fear is the opposite of faith".

Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful Follow Up to Once Upon a PrinceMarch 29, 2014Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A March Bride by Rachel Hauck is an absolute must-read for fans of Once Upon a Prince (one of my very favorite books from 2013). This is the story of the weeks leading up to King Nathaniel and Susanna's wedding and includes all of the romance and sigh-worthy moments that I would expect from these two characters! That is not to say that things go off without a hiccup. There are some threats to their happily ever after, which gave the book the tension it needed and provided problems to be resolved.
This novella was just the right length to tell their wedding story and the author told it so well. If you haven't read Once Upon a Prince, you really need to before reading this novella. Otherwise it just won't be as meaningful. These two characters had to overcome so much in that novel. It makes this novella all the sweeter to read.
Once again, Rachel Hauck has delivered a beautifully sweet story, with believable characters and a happily ever after that is one of the best I have read this year.
Jen PenMidwest5 Stars Out Of 5A faith-filled fairy-tale...March 24, 2014Jen PenMidwestQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5SUMMARY:
Royalty Nathaniel II (of Brighton Kingdom) and Susanna Truitt (of Rib Shack BBQ, Georgia) are set to be married in just under three weeks. Due to an ancient decree still being enforced, Susanna must resign from her United States citizenship in order to serve as Princess of Brighton. Having already given up her home to join Nathaniel in Brighton as well as leaving her family, Susanna struggles with this latest necessary writ. While talking to her Pastor back at home in America, Susanna realizes her identity may be for more than her own use, it may be to serve God. Will Nathaniel and Susanna finally join as King and Princess of Brighton Kingdom?
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Having recently read Once Upon a Prince by Rachel Hauck, I was very surprised and excited to read this continuing novella containing the same characters. As a fan of this author, I knew I was in for a treat_especially as it concerned an already-known princess! Though not necessary to read the books in order, it definitely makes for a more interlinked story if the characters are met in Once Upon a Prince and A Princess Ever After. Perhaps due to my fairy-tale bias, this novella was my favorite so far contained in A Year of Wedding Novellas.

AnnieAge: 18-24Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5A March Bride by Rachel HauckMarch 24, 2014AnnieAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3Published by Zondervan, A March Bride is a continuation from a previous book that Hauck has written. I was actually planning on reading the book first before this; so I am sorry to say it was really difficult reading this book. I did not get far in it and I will not continue. The concept is amazing as all wedding novellas but once again the need to know how the two met and the plot to the engagement is a constant reminder of what is missing.

KaraAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5March 19, 2014KaraAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A March Bride, by Rachel Hauck, is the fourth wedding story in the A Year of Weddings Novella series. It tells the story of Susanna Truitt of Georgia and King Nathaniel II of Brighton. The two must deal with governmental rules, family illnesses, and paparazzi in order to have the wedding of their dreams. This, however, proves to be more difficult then they realized.
Having already fought to change an ancient law in order to be allowed to marry Susanna and retain his throne, Nathaniel is reluctant to tell her of the latest requirement from the Brighton government. When Susanna learns that she must relinquish her American citizenship and become a citizen of Brighton in order to marry her king, she begins to doubt whether this is God's will for her life. With her grandmother too ill to travel and her pregnant best friend on bed rest, Susanna travels back to Georgia both to think and pray. Nathaniel soon follows but has to risk everything he has worked for in order to marry her.
I enjoyed this book. It was charming and full of self-sacrifice. I also appreciated the strong family theme in this story. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a Christian romance story.
