Book Review: Never the Bride

My sister got engaged to a wonderful guy this past weekend. My younger sister. I am so incredibly happy for her, thrilled to be her maid of honor, and the only minuscule rain cloud on the horizon is the impending questions I’ll be asked:

“When is it your turn?”

“How long have you and your boyfriend been together now?”

“Are you sure you’re not in a hurry to get married?”

to which I always respond:

“Not any time soon.”

“Almost three years.”

“Not rushed at all.”

However, if there was any doubt in my mind though, I’d simply have to re-read “Never the Bride” by Cheryl McKay and Rene Gutteridge.

I found this book while searching for new books at my local library. I saw Kristin Billerbeck’s quoted inside the the book and was immediately intrigued because I am a HUGE fan of Billerbeck and her straightforward, sharp wit!

This modern, Christian chick lit is fun and witty but also rings so true. The second you let go and give God the steering wheel, the beautiful love story he’s written for you is IMMEDIATELY revealed. Quite frankly I think it can be applied to any part of anyone’s life, not just as far as relationships are concerned.

The book left me feeling very satisfied, it had everything I normally expect and want from these types of books and reminds the readers that God has something wonderful planned.
