Publisher's Summary

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 purchases 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 beauty of finding true love.

    Story
    "Christian literature"

    I wish I had have known before I bought it. I stopped listening after the 10th mention of prayer and God. I have no problem with anyone listening to whatever type of literature they want I just wish I'd known before I wasted my credit.

    Story
    "Good premise. Went schmaltzy"

    The start of story was intriguing. The author did a good job weaving in the stories. The end was Schmaltzy and overly God oriented. Didn't have to be so explicit. Let the reader figure it out.

    "Alluring story "

    I loved the mystery. Made me share the character's curiosity. I couldn't wait to hear each chapter. The reader was excellent. Her voice suited each character. Very descriptive of the
    backgrounds.

    I love that this is an adult romance that I can safely recommend to my conservative grandmother, my teenage niece or my 30 something friends.

    I loved this story and the magic it imparted. The story of four loves spanning 100 years and the dress that bound them all together was awesome.

    "Nice"

    This is a really nice book, it doesnt have a gripping storyline but is so lovely you want to keep listening. I really felt i knew the central character and was drawn into her world. I would recommend this to anyone who just wants to relax and listen to a nice book.

    Story
    "The wedding dress"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No I was drawn to this book as I enjoy books that are set in more than one time period,. Sadly for me this book was a let down far too predictable plot. Once I had reached the halfway point in the book, I thought I might as well carry onto the end. I was glad when I finished it.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Rachel Hauck? Why or why not?

    No, especially if her other books had the same high volume of religious content.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Eleni Pappageorge?

    no. I have heard the southern accent performed better by other narrators in other books.


    Do you think The Wedding Dress needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, because the history of the dress has already been covered in this book.
