The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck
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.
