DESCRIPTION FROM GOODREADS:
In A February Bride by Betsy St. Amant, history repeats itself when this bride runs out of the church on her wedding day---in the same dress that had been passed down for generations and worn by her mom, grandma and great-grandmother who also ran out of their weddings. The heroine struggles to break destructive cycles of the past. Can this bride shuck expectation and discover who SHE is as a bride and in the Bride of Christ? And if she finally walks down the aisle, what dress will she be wearing? Readers will enjoy this novel of redemption centered on a winter wedding.

MY THOUGHTS:
Thia was a very sweet novella.  It is the story of Allie and Marcus.  Allie knows that she loves Marcus but leaves him at the alter.  She is afraid that she will make the same mistakes her mother, grandmother, and aunt have made in love in marriage.  She has convinced herself that Marcus is better off without her.
To complicate things, Allie's best friend is Hannah.  Hannah is Marcus's sister.  And four months after Allie run out of the church on Marcus, Hannah is engaged to be married.  Allie and Marcus are thrown together in engagement parties, showers, and as Maid of Honor and Best Man.  
Allie has a lot of work through to see that she is not her family, she is her own person.  And seeing the dress can be restored may lead her to restore her relationship with Marcus.
It was a fast, easy read.
