    and for a bride a miserable homecoming

    I noticed that she was deathly white. I felt sorry for her. It was a frightful experience for a girl of that age and for a bride a miserable homecoming.
    (W.S. Maugham; The Book-Bag)

    How would the sentence change if I wrote:

    "It was a frightful experience for a girl of that age and a miserable homecoming for a bride."

    Thanks.
