The protagonists--Geoffrey and Alessandra--are young, without a solid model for married life, so they're trying their best--within the restrictions of early 19th century society--to figure out what they are supposed to do, and how to go deal with the unexpected directions their lives take. Ms. DesJardien writes with a kind and intimate understanding of these young people; their insecurities, their fears, and their growing maturity. Where other authors have protagonists who go into a snit at the least provocation, Geoffrey and Alessandra--in the midst of their worries--try to find the real explanation behind each other's behavior.
A June Bride is a sweet romance, appropriate for all ages. What makes this romance head and shoulders above others is the thoughtfulness in crafting the two protagonists--and the secondary characters as well--with a certain depth and wisdom that comes from an author who is dedicated to the art of storytelling.
This story is all about the relationship between a husband and wife in a forced marriage. They of course had many misunderstandings, but I appreciated that the author didn't make them so stupid that they couldn't rationalize the possibility of the other one having good motives for why things were said or done. Though they still couldn't get it all figured out for awhile.
I only gave it 4 stars because it felt a little long for the story type. I have a difficulty with misunderstandings going too long and people taking so long before communicating. But otherwise it was very good.
