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
    "if you aren't super religious you will be annoyed"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    it was for a book club, I liked the story but its my least favorite we have read to date


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

    NO. Too much religion and I prefer strong female characters


    What three words best describe Eleni Pappageorge’s performance?

    bubbly, clear, crisp


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    less religion


    Any additional comments?

    The story would have been good without all the overtly religious parts, it felt like preaching and didn't add value. Also I didn't like how week charlotte was portrayed.

    "Great interweaving story"

    This was a well-written light-hearted book and went seamlessly back in time, switching to present, making you want more of each story. The only thing I didn't like was Cleo's character at the Ludlow house. I wish this character had been more sympathetic and excited, while still worrying about her future.

    Great narration that fit well with the characters and transitioned well from one character to another.

    "Exceptional"

    I would absolutely recommend this book! It is somewhat a mystery with romance intertwined gracefully by the author. It combines historical stories with modern stories and before you know it, you've listened to the whole thing and wish you could start it all over again.

    "Not impressive"

    I was disappointed with this book, even though going into it I didn't expect a literary masterpiece. There were too many repetitions of the main character's thoughts; if this were in print I'd see if they were written verbatim.

    This book might be popular with readers who like characters who talk about their belief in God and Jesus Christ.

    "Disappointing"

    This book might appeal to simple minded teenaged girls. Sad portrayal of southern women, and southern accents are comical.

    Story
    "Pretty awful."

    Im a guy so maybe I didn't relate enough. But, I did not think the dialogue was high-quality and the characters werent fleshed out enough to really like them. All in all, It was not a very interesting story. The narrator did a very good job with All the voices though. The Wedding dress could've been more glorified. At parts, the drawnout story lines were not that interesting. I decided to skip parts because I couldn't stay interested. I was actually relieved the book ended.

    Story
    "This a great book for a 13 year old"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I think is a great modern day fairy tale for a 13 year old but as a 29 year old I have trouble reading this kind of nonsense about a magical dress and southern love.


    What does Eleni Pappageorge bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A bad southern accent.
