This Book was supplied to me by Thomas Nelson Publishers through NetGalley for a review in return.
Charlotte can dress any bride to perfection-except herself. When she discovers a vintage mint-condition wedding gown in a battered old trunk, Charlotte embarks on a passionate journey to discover the women who wore the gown before her. Emily in 1912. Mary in 1939. And Hillary in 1968. Each woman teaches Charlotte something about love in her own unique way. Woven within the threads of the beautiful hundred-year-old gown is the truth about Charlotte's heritage, the power of faith, and the beauty of finding true love.
This book is a Great book. This is the first book I have ready by Rachel Hauck, and it will not be the last. I loved this story. It starts out with Charlotte Malone, who is engaged but is not for sure about it. In the meantime, she goes to a mountain to just think, and she winds up in an auction buying an old trunk and the contents are very surprising. She finds a wedding dress in there and the journeys that dress has taken dating back to 1912. It was first worn by Emily and then Mary Grace, Hillary and now it is in Charlotte’s possession. I just loved this book because I would love to trace my roots and see what I find and Rachel takes you on that journey. I loved this saying in the book and just had to share with everyone. "The Good News is always Good. It never wears out and is always in style". Hope everyone enjoys that.
I would suggest this book to my family and friends, which I have already done that. I absolutely couldn’t put it down, Rachel Hauck just draws you into her story and I thoroughly loved it. I hope to read another one of Rachel’s books soon. Thank you, Thomas Nelson for letting me read this book and give it an honest review.

This Book was supplied to me by Barbour Publishing through NetGalley for a review in return.
Welcome back to Kentucky, where an Amish couple from Lancaster County seeks a new future in the land of tomorrow. When Timothy Fisher decides to move his wife, Hannah, and daughter Mindy to Christian County, where two of his brothers now reside, Hannah is very reluctant to go. Will the new home Timothy builds for them there do anything to lift her spirits? When a tragic accident occurs, Timothy and Hannah are inconsolable. Is an abrupt separation the beginning of the end of their marriage, or will they rally to seize a God-given second chance?
This book is the 3rd book in the Kentucky Brothers Series by Wanda Brunstetter. I love Wanda’s writing, she is one of the best authors who write on Amish Fiction.
This book begins when Timothy Fisher decides to move his family (himself, Hannah and daughter Mindy) to Kentucky from Pennsylvania, I believe it is in Paradise, Pennsylvania. Hannah is reluctant about moving because she is so close to her Mamm and Timothy thinks this is ruining his marriage. Of course, Mindy is so little, it doesn’t matter to her. Hannah has issues when they arrive in Kentucky and because she doesn’t like it in Kentucky, this causes a strain on their marriage. Actually, in places I wanted to kick her down the dirt road. I feel like she is the one to blame for her and Timothy’s marriage problems.
As life goes on for them Hannah learns to like it in Kentucky and then tragedy strikes. After a while, she leaves and goes to Pennsylvania and stays with her parents. But, she finally returns to Kentucky and then there is an accident. I won’t go any further, but I would suggest this book to all my friends and family. Wanda has another GREAT book and you need to pick it up. You will not be sorry.
Thank you Barbour Publishing, for giving me the opportunity to read this book and give this review.
