An April Bride by Lenora Worth

From the publisher:
War changes everything…even their love.

Bride-to-be Stella Carson can't wait to marry her longtime sweetheart Marshall Henderson. But Marshall has been away serving his country and has suffered a head wound. After being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, he has distanced himself from Stella, asking her not to visit him in a Washington, D.C., hospital. Marshall returns to Louisiana just four weeks before the wedding, but as the big day draws near, Stella wonders if the man she's loved for most of her life has become someone else. Can true love conquer all for Stella and Marshall, even the tragedy of war?

This novella is part of a series of bridal stories that are each one of the months of the year.  

The idea of this novel is one that people enjoy.  You have watched or read movies/books with the idea of true love that is forgotten in a tragic event.  The Notebook or The Vow come to mind.  Lenora Worth writes Stella and Marshall to be the love of a lifetime that began in childhood.  Readers will probably sympathize with both Stella and Marshall as they struggle to deal with the head wound and memory loss.

I had a hard time really getting into the characters or feeling for them.  I wanted to but found myself wanting more from the writing to make me care about these characters who were going through such a hard time.  Marshall and Stella seemed to swing from one emotion to the next and it just didn't seem to flow.

I received this ebook free from BookLookBloggers in exchange for my honest review.
