Publisher's Summary

A lonely wedding chapel built as a tribute to lost love just might hold the long-awaited secret to hope and reconciliation.

For 60 years, the wedding chapel has stood silent and empty. Retired football hall-of-famer Jimmy "Coach" Westbrook built the chapel by hand, stone by stone, for his beautiful and beloved Collette Greer, whom he lost so many years ago. The chapel is a sanctuary for his memories, a monument to true love, and a testament to his survival of the deepest pain and loss.

Photographer Taylor Branson left her hometown of Heart's Bend, Tennessee, to make a new life for herself in New York. Taylor had lots to run away from, not least of all a family history of broken promises and broken dreams. Love catches Taylor off guard when she falls for Jack Forester, a successful advertising executive, and their whirlwind romance leads to an elopement - and then to second guesses. Jack, in spite of his very real love for Taylor, is battling his own demons and struggles to show her his true self and the depths of his love for her.

When Taylor takes a photography assignment in Heart's Bend, she is thrown back into her own past and encounters family secrets buried deep beneath the sands of time. And when Taylor and Coach's journeys collide, they both rediscover the heartbeats of their own dreams as they learn that the love they long to hold is well worth waiting for.

I wish I could give it more stars!!

I don't easily give 5-star ratings, but I could give this one 6 stars! :) This book has everything that I love .... a Christian message, romance, drama, surprises, small towns. The only thing lacking in this book is pictures! I would love to see the wedding chapel. I highly recommend this book and offer many thanks to Rachel Hauck for bringing us this story! As for the narration, I liked the narrator's voice, but she didn't make changes for the characters. It was often hard to tell who was speaking. Also, for Peg and Collette, she should have used a British accent. After all, they were from England!

Timeless story!

I have read other stories by this author so I was excited to read another and this one delivered also. What a sweet timeless story of love. It took turns that I did not anticipate at all. I was so relieved that the outcome was where love prevails over years and years of always holding on to that first love.

Don't miss this one.

Another excellent story and narration

Story goes back and forth between years, but is very easy to follow. Characters well defined and consistent. I recommend the entire series.

Such a Special story!

This book is so very special. I loved the different time periods. Jack and Taylor loved each other but didn't know how to communicate that. Jimmy and Colette loved each other but believed each had let go of that love for reasons I cannot share without spoiling the story.
With the whoosh, thump heartbeat of God connecting them, each couple found truth, grace, and love.

The narration was excellent!

Loved the story line, but someone needs to tell the narrator that she needs to work on her presentation.

great story, narration, not so much

What did you love best about The Wedding Chapel?

The heartfelt story and family connections. Always a surprise waiting with this authors stories!

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

No. the narration was distracting. Accent was awful, especially for the two British characters.

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

Love that the love of the Lord is worked into each of her books.
