Goodreads:   Four brides. One Dress.

A tale of faith, redemption, and timeless love.

Charlotte owns a chic Birmingham bridal boutique. Dressing brides for their big day is her gift . . . and her passion. But with her own wedding day approaching, why can’t she find the perfect dress…or feel certain she should marry Tim?

Then Charlotte discovers a vintage dress in a battered trunk at an estate sale. It looks brand-new-shimmering with pearls and satin, hand-stitched and timeless in its design. But where did it come from? Who wore it? Who welded the lock shut and tucked the dog tags in that little sachet? Who left it in the basement for a ten-year-old girl? And what about the mysterious man in the purple vest who insists the dress had been “redeemed.”

Charlotte’s search for the gown’s history-and its new bride-begins as a distraction from her sputtering love life. But it takes on a life of its own as she comes to know the women who have worn the dress. Emily from 1912. Mary Grace from 1939. Hillary from 1968. Each with her own story of promise, pain, and destiny. And each with something unique to share. For woven within the threads of the beautiful hundred-year-old gown is the truth about Charlotte’s heritage, the power of courage and faith, and the timeless beauty of finding true love.

“The story of four loveable women, miraculously bound by one gown, whose lives span a century . . . will take your breath away.” -Beth Webb Hart, bestselling author of “Love, Charleston”



Ope’s Opinion:   Rachel Hauck can weave a story of old and new better then anyone else I have ever read!  This story captured me on page one and kept me reading until the very end.    Hauck drew me in and I enjoyed this one.  The flow between past and present was seamless.  

                                       The characters in this book were positive, enjoyable, and realistic.  I wanted them to be happy and find love.  I also wanted them to find answers to their questions.  Those answers came unfolded  a little at time in a way that I found believable.
                                      This was a very enjoyable read that I would recommend to anyone.  I am not sure how I left it on my shelf so long.  I have a couple of other books by Hauck that I am looking forward to reading.

                                       

Rating:  Five Chairs – This book is so good it will be passed on and on and on……
