Item Description...
Taking a vow to declare "I won't" the next time she's asked to be a bridesmaid, Dana Rose also faces up to her nagging siblings and her ex-husband---who has decided to start the business they once dreamed of across from her new shop. What would she do without her friends in the Sassy Sistahood? Once, twice, ten times a bridesmaid! I, Dana Rose, do solemnly swear to say "I won't" the next time someone asks me to be in their wedding party. My weak will has gained me a closet full of unflattering bridesmaids' dresses in various sizes to accommodate my ever-fluctuating waistline. As if that isn't enough, the past is paying me a most unwelcome visit (my prodigal brother, my back-stabbing sis). Then there's Mr. Practically Perfect, the ex who not only married someone else, but opened the business of our dreams -- right across from my new shop! It's no wonder I've got problems! I'm thankful I've got my friends, the Sassy Sistahood, to rely on....

Did not enjoy this book at all  Mar 10, 2008
When I first picked up Made of Honor, I thought it had a lot of promise based on the blurb on the back cover. However, I was disappointed. I just did not like the author's first person style of writing, I felt the characters spent too much time on introspection and analyzing every detail of every plot scenario, to the point where I felt this book was unreadable. More action and less navel-gazing please.
Great Read!  Feb 18, 2007
This book was certainly full of drama!! All of the characters had issues they needed to overcome, and they found the strength to overcome their problems through the glory of God. When Dana loses her job, she opens a shop that caters to future brides and other women who want to feel their best! In the meantime, her beloved ex-boyfriend, Adrian, opens a shop, right across the street from hers! And to make matters worse, it's a shop he opened with his now-deceased wife....a shop that both Adrian and Dana dreamed about opening together, and of course that didn't happen when Adrian ended up marrying somebody else!

Then there's Dana's sister, Dahlia. The two sisters are estranged since Dahlia has now shacked up with Trevor, another one of Dana's ex's. And Dahlia also has her eyes set upon Adrian. The two sisters try to work out their problems throughout the scope of the story.

Also, Dana is tired of being a bridesmaid. She's got about ten bridesmaid dresses lined up in her closet, and she wonders if she'll ever be a bride. She's saddened that her childhood sweetheart married somebody else, and now that his wife is dead, he's back in town, trying to woo her. She's not sure if she really wants to be with him and she talks about her feelings with her best friends. The sassy sisters are close, and they try to motivate each other through motivational postings over the internet.

Then there's Dana's brother, who's come back into town after being gone for a gazillion years. Dana and the rest of her family, knew he was playing sports for some time, but then he disappeared. They are stunned to find out he's been in a coma for the last four(?) years and has just awakened a short time ago.

Then there's Dana's father who has a problem with booze, but finds solace in cooking for his family.

This book was filled with a cast of characters who needed the Lord, or if they were saved, needed to be closer to Him and hear His voice about their problems. When Dana suffers from a traumatic experience, her faith is strengthened as she recovers and decides to have a ceremony, renewing her solid relationship to God. Griffith does an awesome job of showing how people with problems and issues can come to know the Lord.

Also, I loved her descriptions. I almost wanted to eat the facials, soaps, and lotions she describes! Dana makes batches of vanilla lotion, lemon poundcake facials, strawberry beauty products, apple cobbler soap, etc. She uses fresh ingredients, and when she describes the scents of her products, and the scents of Adrian's candles, I wanted to pull up a chair and grab a plate and eat! I know that sounds weird but her descriptions made my mouth water, even though she was describing the luscious scents as a part of beauty products and candles!

Froo-froo shee-shee on a Harley?????!!!!!  Dec 30, 2006

Froo-froo shee-shee Bath Product Making/Wedding Hating Chick reunites with down-to-earth Candle Making/Widower Dude from her not-so-romantic past & the bubbles & the sparks & the bridal bouquets fly as everyone's collective pasts come back to haunt them ALL with a vengeance ...

Me? I don't do weddings. At all. Don't like them. Don't wanna like them. Don't wanna look at them. Don't wanna listen to people talk about them. Don't wanna plan them. Don't wanna attend them. Nothing. I don't even want to be in MY OWN wedding -- ever.

So I could totally relate to the main character in THAT way, but, sheesh. Give me a break. How could someone who hates weddings so much spend so much time GOING to them & BEING in them, etc.? I wouldn't do it, & so I had a hard time feeling sorry for her &/or believing that she was really sincere. Rather, I was getting an extremely strong methinks-she-doth-protest-too-much vibe & especially since she was into all that girly stuff like bath products & what-have-you -- and the Harley thing? Now THAT came right out of left field. I didn't buy it for a second.

That said, & though the grandiose overdose of drama was exhausting to wade through & I thought the love interest turned out to be quite the dreamboat (read: too good to be true), I am SO glad that "Made Of Honor" was a Christian novel, or I might not have made it to the best part of the novel (for me):

"You and I both skipped from sinner to superservant because of the expectations of others. There are a lot more pieces to the journey. Just let Him carry you right now."

Now that was:

Made To Order \o/
Very Slow!!!!  Dec 15, 2006
Maybe it was me but this book needed lots of editing. I just didn't flow. I skipped several chapers to find the "interesting parts" after all the great reviews I was very disappointed.
Made of Honor  Oct 12, 2006
What do an estranged brother, a backstabbing sister, and a childhood buddy have in common? In some way, they have all hurt Miss Dana Rose, the main character of Marilynn Griffith's novel, Made of Honor.

A Christian woman, Dana has become embittered by life's circumstances. One of Dana's struggles is with relationships. For one, although Dana has been in numerous weddings as a bridesmaid, (but never a bride), the whole concept of marriage has left a bad taste in her mouth. Why? What is it about weddings, dresses, and men that enrage Dana so much?

Not to mention, Dana's world comes crashing down when she loses her job. Where will she go? Who will help her get back on her feet?

Meanwhile, Dana's brother, Jordan comes back after being away for years, and leaving behind a son whom Dana has helped to raise. Also, Dahlia, who is far from a beautiful flower, is Dana's confused and shady sister. She comes back to town with a surprise bombshell.

What else could happen to Dana? One name, "Adrian." This man is Dana's past, present, and well... He decides to put his business near Dana's place of employment. "Why?" wonders Dana.

Does Adrian still care for Dana after marrying another woman instead of Dana? How does Dana really feel about Adrian?

There are so many questions in Dana's mind that need to be answered.

Marilynn Griffith's writing style is comical and light-hearted, yet realistic. She brings serious issues to the surface such as betrayal, friendships, baby-mama drama, alcoholism, and ultimately the power of God's restoring love and grace.

Made of Honor proves that God is able to correct problems and bring healing to every broken heart and relationship.

Great job, Mrs. Griffith!
