Publisher's Summary

Thousands of women have stepped inside Becker’s Bridal in Fowler, Michigan, to try on their dream dresses in the Magic Room, a special space with soft lighting, a circular pedestal, and mirrors that carry a bride’s reflections into infinity. The women bring with them their most precious expectations about romance, love, fidelity, permanence, and tradition. Each bride who passes through has a story to tell - one that carried her there, to that dress, that room, that moment.

Illuminating the poignant aspects of a woman’s journey to the altar, The Magic Room tells the stories of memorable women on the brink of commitment. Run by the same family for four generations, Becker’s has witnessed transformations in how America views the institution of marriage: some of the shop’s clientele are becoming step-mothers, some are older brides, some are pregnant. Shop owner Shelley has a special affection for all the brides, hoping their journeys will be easier than hers. Wall Street Journal columnist Jeffrey Zaslow tells their true stories using a reporter’s research and a father’s heart.

The stories Zaslow shares from within The Magic Room are at times joyful, at times heart-breaking, and offers with insights on marriage, family, and the lessons that parents - especially mothers - pass on to their daughters about love. Weaving together secrets, memories, and family tales, The Magic Room explores the emotional lives of women in the 21st century.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, the women in my book club also read it and they all seemed to like it better than me.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Hearing the stories of the various women and their families.


    What about Sandra Burr and Jeffrey Zaslow ’s performance did you like?

    Easy to understand, pleasant voices.


    Do you think The Magic Room needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nope. Sadly, I guess it would have to be written by someone else:(


    Any additional comments?

    It was a good, entertaining book. If I could have given it half stars I woulda kicked it up a half.
