Review: The Wedding Dress

Despite owning the hottest bridal boutique in Birmingham, Charlotte just can't seem to get around to selecting a dress for her own upcoming wedding.  Her dress dilemma seems to be solved, however, when a battered trunk purchased at an estate sale yields an exquisite wedding gown.  The dress is perfect, but where did it come from?  Who wore it?  And, does Charlotte have the courage to wear it herself?

Rachel Hauck's The Wedding Dress (Thomas Nelson, 2012) is a gorgeous tale of four brides, one wedding dress, and the courage and faith it takes to love.  Hauck creates a great cast of characters spanning four generations, and she makes it look easy.  Sweet, romantic, and entertaining, The Wedding Dress is an excellent read.

What is "true" beauty? Join the conversation at Rachel's Author Chat Party Event Page. On the evening of 4/19 we'll gather to talk about inner and outer beauty and share moments of beauty in our lives.  Rachel will be hosting an evening of beauty (inner/outer) chat, fun trivia, laughter, and encouragement - bring your friends! She'll also be giving away some GREAT prizes: gift certificates, books, and a Book Club Prize Pack! (Ten copies of the book for your small group or book club and a live chat with Rachel via Skype.)

Hope to see you on the 19th!

I was thinking, "I have that book!" But mine, though it has the same title, is by Virginia Ellis.

Interesting.

I saw a Hallmark Channel movie with the exact same premise.

One dress.

Four brides.
