The Wedding Dress, by Rachel Hauck
Brought Me to Tears
Charlotte owns a wedding dress boutique, and has a true gift for finding the perfect dress for every bride that comes her way, that is except herself. Somehow, she just cannot move forward with her wedding plans, so she visits a local historical estate for peace and quiet, but instead discovers they are having an antique sale to raise money for the foundation. She finds herself bidding on a trunk, then discovers that it holds a beautiful wedding gown, thus she begins a journey to discover who owned the gown before even though it appears unworn. Her journey takes her through one hundred years, connecting her life to this who lived gone before and opening her eyes to her own choices.
The beginning gave the impression that this book is a simple romance, but it proved to be so much more. Reading about the struggles and the lives of those who wore the dress made me smile and cry as the women found their way to the man that God had chosen for them, along the way growing in faith and hope. Anyone who enjoys a beautiful love story or a story of women seeking God’s will, will love this book.
