Never the Bride by Cheryl Mackay and Rene Gutteridge

Never the Bride by Cheryl Mackay & Rene Gutteridge was a very delightful read. It is not very heavy but has a wonderful message of allowing God to write your love story.

We meet Jessie Stone at 34 and desperate to be married. She tells us how independent she is and all she can do for herself but that she is lonely and tired of it. She has been in numerous weddings, planned more than she can count, shopped for gift after gift and yet has not met her prince charming.

Jessie has been trying to write her love story since she was 6 years old. Her mother had always told her how great her wedding was and couldn't wait for her daughter to experience that joy. So what does Jessie do when God in the flesh show up to her walking and talking (though others can't see Him). God asks her to give up her plans and let Him write her his perfect love story for her. Will Jessie get the love story she has always wanted? Does she learn that God's plan is better than anything she could plan for herself.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
