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.

If you believe that God is your fairy godmother and that money will just fall into your bank account if you just pray more, this book will be perfect for you. Even without the Bible Thumping basis, it was not well written. I'm particularly sensitive to hokey Southern female damsels in distress. Hated it.
its always fun to listen, it gives the book some added imagination.
I don't want to tell, but I would love to own this dress.
The narration was wonderful. Her voice added so much to make this a very nice book.
This was one of the better romance books I've had the pleasure of listing to, I added it to my listen again section. Based on this book I downloaded several by the same author and I have not been disappointed.
This isn't your regular girl meets boy kind of romance. It has history, whimsy, betrayal, and do I do what everyone wants or do what I want.
