Review: The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck

Goodreads:  One dress. Four women. An amazing destiny.
Charlotte Malone is getting married. Yet all is not settled in the heart of Birmingham's chic bridal boutique owner. 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.

Kritters Thoughts:  Charlotte Malone is a young woman who has always put up walls instead of forming a lot of friendships/relationships.  She has not been in love often and finds her independence to be a crutch instead of allowing others to get close in fear that they may leave in one way or another.  Through mysterious ways, she ends up with a trunk that is welded shut and with no clue as to its contents.  Once she gets it open and finds the most beautiful wedding dress, she embarks on a journey to find out about its past owners.

What a wonderful book.  I absolutely loved taking the adventure with her to find out about the past of the dress along with finding out about her past.  The author seamlessly weaves together stories from the past and the present without having the reader get lost in the middle.  The pieces all fit together in the end to create such a magical story.

Few things are more important to the bride then what she wears on for her big day.  A book that centers around this very thing was beautiful and should be read by those who are already married, in the middle of planning or have a dream of getting married one day.    

DISCLAIMER: I am just a few days away from shopping for my wedding dress, so I knew the minute I saw this on BookSneeze that I had to grab it and read it immediately!

Rating:  absolutely loved it and want a sequel

  1. It does sound like a wonderful book... and I seriously love the dress on the cover!
