The Wedding Dress~Rachel Hauck~Book Review

by adustyframe ~ April 11th, 2012

I received a copy of The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck from LitFuse Publicity to review on my blog.
I may be weird, but almost every time I get a review book to read, I put it off. Sometimes it’s because I am already reading other review items. Sometimes it’s because I’m reading my own “to read” pile. Sometimes it’s because I think, “What if it’s not good!?”
Well, I put off reading this book, but my worries were unfounded. It was good. I’ve not read anything by Rachel Hauk before so once again, I found a new author.

I enjoyed the story of Charlotte and the wedding dress. The book goes back and forth between the brides and their stories–all centered around the same wedding dress.

I will admit a couple parts of the story are a little “fantastic” but overall it is a very nice story–and I was happy with the way it ended. Actually, I smiled about the ending for 2 days!

About the Book:

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.
