Twice a Bride: A Novel by Mona Hodgson
Twice a Bride: A Novel is the fourth book in the Sinclair Sisters series. Since I was given this book to review without having read the other three, I can only review the book based on not having the full picture of information from the other three books. This book is a historical romance, and a very easy read. The story is fairly predictable (but aren't almost all romances this way?)and the characters are developed adequately for a light and easy read. For a full picture, it may be wise to read the other three books in this series first.The theme of this book is loss, discovery, and restoration. Some of the behaviors of the characters are quite entertaining, and this book gives the reader a nice respite from the daily cares that sometimes consume us. The main character, Willow, is likeable and relatable. The author interweaves Christianity in a easy to understand way, and uses Willow and the "hero" and the main character to show that Jesus does indeed love us, and has a plan for everyone. If you like historical romance with a Christian message, this is the perfect book for you. I received this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review.
