Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Rachel Hauck comes The Wedding Dress.

"Hauck weaves an intricately beautiful story centering around a wedding dress passed down through the years. Taken at face value, the tale is superlative, but considering the spiritual message both on the surface and between the lines, this novel is incredible. Readers will laugh, cry and treasure this book." (RT Book Reviews, Top Pick! for The Wedding Dress

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?

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 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.

One of my favorites!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Wedding Dress to be better than the print version?

Yes! I so enjoyed listening to the book. Of course, I prefer listening to reading because I can listen while I do other things like household chores or driving.

What about Windy Lanzl’s performance did you like?

I really enjoyed her performance. She did a great job with the characters. I was able to "forget" she was there and feel the different characters in the story come alive.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, nothing extreme. There were humorous moments, sad moments, and moments that made me cringe, but nothing that shocked me. It was an enjoyable ride.

Any additional comments?

This is one of my favorites of Rachel Hauk. It was well written and kept me interested throughout the 10 hours of listening!

A thoroughly enjoyable read!

This is the first of Rachel Hauck's work that I have read. I really enjoyed the story. She developed the characters and storyline at a good pace and even though she frequently shifts character voices and points of view, I did not get confused about who was speaking. It is a great light-hearted listen. Great for the beach or vacation.
