The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck

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.

My Thoughts

Picking up The Wedding Dress I was very curious about this book. A modern-day bride Charlotte, finds a 100-year- old wedding dress. The story goes back and forth between the past and the present. Four different women wore this wedding gown and Charlotte is determined to learn the story behind this gown.   Beginning with Emily and ending with Charlotte.

Rachel Hauck tells the captivating tale of these four women and their stories and their beautiful wedding dress. The characters are well developed and this story is full of mystery, romance, intrigue and history. I love the combination of both modern day and history all wrapped into one!
