Product Description

Charlotte can dress any bride to perfection-except herself. When she discovers a vintage mint-condition wedding gown in a battered old trunk, Charlotte embarks on a passionate journey to discover the women who wore the gown before her. Emily in 1912. Mary in 1939. And Hillary in 1968. Each woman teaches Charlotte something about love in her own unique way. Woven within the threads of the beautiful hundred-year-old gown is the truth about Charlotte's heritage, the power of faith, and the beauty of finding true love.

Publisher's Description

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 discovers 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 timeless beauty of finding true love.

“The story of four loveable women, miraculously bound by one gown, whose lives span a century . . . will take your breath away.” —Beth Webb Hart, bestselling author of Love, Charleston

Reviews

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. - 4 1/2 stars Romantic Times

    Just finished reading this awesome book. I loved reading about the four brides who wore the same dress and the way at the end of the book you see how the four brides were all connected. The twists and turns of the plot were all perfectly woven together. This is the first book that I have read by this author and I will definitely want to read more of her books and I am sure I will want to read this book again.

    Turning a historical fan into a contemporary fan!

    This book is fabulous. I mean fabulous, fabulous, fabulous! I love, love, loved it! (Apparently I'm into groups of three today).

    Rachel Hauck is so sneaky, getting us historical fiction fans to love the contemporary stuff. Well, with The Wedding Dress, it worked! Although this does have a bit of back-in-time storyline, the main storyline is the here and now.

    This is one book you're drawn into immediately. You know, one of those stories where all you think about is the next time you'll be able to get back to reading. The Wedding Dress was most definitely a read I couldn't put down.

    This also meant I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I loved how Hauck weaved all the stories together - in ways I didn't see coming. Each story behind the wedding dress was a great one in it's own right. Each beautiful and moving. I don't remember the last time I teared up as much in a book, but I did internet. I did.

    "Faith, girl, faith. At the end of the day, that's all we have."

    All that to say, if you haven't read any of Rachel's book, this is a fantastic one to start with! Have you read this one? I'd love to know what you think!

    When I first saw this book I bought it for my cousin, who loves anything that has to do with weddings. Because I couldn't give it to her right away I could not stop myself from picking it up and reading the first chapter. I loved it! To my surprise I could not stop reading and thinking about all the women stories with the dress. I finished it and finally gave it to her, making sure there were no marks or folded pages, and decided to buy another for myself. Great read! Truly recommended book.
