“A March Bride” Book Review

Mar 23, 2015 by

Welcome back to Rachel’s Back Talk! I’m so glad you could join me again. Today I am reviewing Rachel Hauck’s novella A March Bride which is apart of the “Year of Wedding” series. This book is a continuation of King Nathaniel and Susanna from Once Upon A Prince and I would definitely recommend reading it first to give you full enjoyment!


As is my custom, if I could ask Rachel one question about A March Bride, it would be — “Do you ever wish you could continue Susanna and Nathaniel’s story beyond their wedding?” And if you want to know why I asked that question, I guess you’ll just have to read the book to find out!


And without further ado, on to Rachel’s Back Talk!

From the Back Cover:

Susanna Truitt (Once Upon A Prince) is three weeks from royalty. She’ll soon marry King Nathaniel II of Brighton Kingdom. But when the government insists she renounce her American citizenship before the wedding, coupled with the lack of involvement by family and friends, Susanna’s heart begins to doubt whether this marriage is God’s plan for her.

Nathaniel would do anything for his bride-to-be. But he knows his position requires that she give up a lot to be with him. Her life will never be her own—right down to her very identity. When she travels home to St. Simon’s Island, Georgia, right before the wedding, Nathaniel fears she won’t return. Gathering his courage, he devises a plan to win his bride all over again, and together they seek out a kingdom to treasure above all.

You just can’t go wrong with Rachel Hauck’s writing and this novella was no exception! I absolutely loved the continuation of Susanna and Nathaniel’s story. This novella picked right up where Once Upon a Prince left off and the King was about to marry his American bride. Of course there had to be tension in the book, so why wouldn’t doubts start to rise. And rightly so for Susanna who had already given up everything and was now required to give up her America citizenship if she wanted to marry her King.

I loved how Rachel developed Susanna’s character even more. You could see that she picked up right where she left off. Susanna’s spiritual growth was so evident to me as the reader. When Susanna was reminded about how she is ultimately a citizen of God’s kingdom, I think that can hit home with any reader. It doesn’t matter where we live because when we are children of God, we are with him.

And let’s face it, Nathaniel is just a romantic. He lived in fear of being rejected publicly, but he put all that aside just so he could show Susanna how much he loved her. I just love that!
