Description

The New York Times best seller from award-winning author Rachel Hauck!

Four brides. One dress. A tale of faith, redemption, and timeless love.

Charlotte owns a chic Birmingham bridal boutique. Dressing brides for their big day is her gift - and her passion. But with her own wedding day approaching, why can’t she find the perfect dress - or feel certain she should marry Tim?

Then Charlotte purchases a vintage dress in a battered trunk at an estate sale. It looks brand-new, shimmering with pearls and satin, hand-stitched and timeless in its design. But where did it come from? Who wore it?

Charlotte’s search for the gown’s history - and its new bride - begins as a distraction from her sputtering love life. But it takes on a life of its own as she comes to know the women who have worn the dress. Emily from 1912. Mary Grace from 1939. Hillary from 1968. Each with something unique to share. For woven within the threads of the beautiful hundred-year-old gown is the truth about Charlotte’s heritage, the power of courage and faith, and the beauty of finding true love.

The Wedding Dress is a seamless tale of enduring love that weaves the past and present in an intricate, wedding dress mystery. Hauck again manages to mesmerize for well over 300 pages with quirky characters, a compelling plot, and a satisfying happily-ever-after. Highly recommended!” (Denise Hunter, best-selling author of the Blue Ridge Romance Novels)

The Wedding Dress will capture you from page one with a story only Rachel Hauck could weave.” (Jenny B. Jones, award-winning author of There You’ll Find Me)

“Rachel Hauck enchants us again! Tenley and Birdie are bound together by the understanding that creativity is a guiding force and that their stories must be told. A tale both bittersweet and redemptive, The Writing Desk is your must-read.” (Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times best-selling author)

A thoroughly enjoyable read!

This is the first of Rachel Hauck's work that I have read. I really enjoyed the story. She developed the characters and storyline at a good pace and even though she frequently shifts character voices and points of view, I did not get confused about who was speaking. It is a great light-hearted listen. Great for the beach or vacation.

One of my favorites!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Wedding Dress to be better than the print version?

Yes! I so enjoyed listening to the book. Of course, I prefer listening to reading because I can listen while I do other things like household chores or driving.

What about Windy Lanzl’s performance did you like?

I really enjoyed her performance. She did a great job with the characters. I was able to "forget" she was there and feel the different characters in the story come alive.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, nothing extreme. There were humorous moments, sad moments, and moments that made me cringe, but nothing that shocked me. It was an enjoyable ride.

Any additional comments?

This is one of my favorites of Rachel Hauk. It was well written and kept me interested throughout the 10 hours of listening!

Loved this book

This was a book I didn’t want to reach the end. It was humorous, romantic, magical. It didn’t fee like reading a story, but more like being part of the story

An inspiring romance novel

This wasn’t at all what I expected, but it was perfect for a long drive on a fall day.

Evangelical claptrap

I am so angry. This was never revealed to be an evangelical Christian book. The Jesus saves stuff totally turned me off. I am an atheist and would never, ever, every have picked this had I known it was holy roller material masquerading as historical fiction. Beware, unless you're religious, in which case you may or may not like it. I asked for a refund.

Wonderful story, decent reader

It is so refreshing and uplifting to find a very well-written story of love, mystery, and romance that has characters of faith and morals! The narrator is a little stiff, but nothing too distracting.
Definitely worth the read/listen!

Life of faith love & a magic dress

It's a christian book for the young. Also about faith in God to carry you through difficult situations. Then the magic of a wedding dress very much like the sisterhood of the travelling pants.

sweet story

I loved the storyline including the women of multiple generations and their connection to the wedding dress. I was not expecting that this was a Christian novel with so many religious undertones, So that was a bit of a surprise. That being said, the story is sweet, no real villains. The characters are uncharacteristically kind and good and absolutely naïve.
