A December Bride by Denise Hunter
Hunter uses characters from one of her previous books and elaborated on the life of one of the main characters siblings. It is a beautiful tale about love gone wrong when we take matters into our own hands and turn away from what God is doing in our lives.
This is a novella in the shortest, sweetest of moments. I read this book within three days and was surprised at how easily it flowed. Layla is an ‘ex’ of the worst kind. They guy she was supposed to marry cheats on her and she becomes jaded to the lethal dose. She judges on her own judgement and the person she holds a grudge against is the one who gets her into a mess that ends into a completely romantic ending. The romance was to gooey and the lead was great. Male and female perspective give this novella a grounded middle. The overall message of this book strives on us, children of God, who go through everyday life not realizing what God really had in store for us. But what ever we do, God can undo, with a little rationalization and deeper seeking, We find that what God wanted for us, is way better that what we could ever come up with for ourselves.
I recommend this beautiful short read.
