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

    The Book That Started the Saga

    This review was written for The Wedding Dress.
    The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck was released in 2012, so today's post is kind of a throwback promotion. This is the book the started it all; this best seller kick-started Rachel Hauck's series of novels, all centering around weddings and women throughout the generations.

    Each novel in this "Wedding Collection" series has a common item that plays a part in multiple women's love stories through multiple generations. In this book's case, it's a wedding dress shrouded in mystery. Each book goes through the stories of the individual women, time-traveling back and forth in alternating chapters, to tell how one woman's story and connection to the wedding related item connected to another woman's story. There are elements of romance, faith, mystery, and legacy in each book, all woven together by their common threads that bring the book together.

    One thing I would say about this series? You have to pay attention. The time-jumping is easy to get lost in, and the mystery element to the stories make it harder to get a grasp on what's going on, so if you want to read these, read them in as close to one sitting as you can. The little details add up quickly and tie the story together, but they are easy to miss and then you can be left wondering who is who and what time period the story is in.

    Other than that, though, Rachel Hauck is onto something. The timeless elements and beautiful ways that the three stories come together in and of themselves, but also as a series of wedding related items, is fairly magical.

    Thank you to the Thomas Nelson and Zondervan Fiction Guild for providing me with copies of all of the books in this series. All opinions are my own.

    A most extraordinary tale, a little reminiscent of a time machine, thoroughly entertaining and hard to put down. I couldn't guess what would be next. It contained loving characters, sadness, yet showed faith in God while proving God loves us and has a plan for our lives and never gives up on us. Composed of fairy tale stuff - 4 ladies, 4 different sizes, one dress and yet it fit them all, not only in size but different era, styles, expectations and different ways of looking at things. God had a different path for each and yet there are many connections.

    I strongly recommend this book for all lovers of Christian Fiction.

    Rachel is a new author to me and I am looking forward to a lot more stories by her. I love her imagination and writing style.

    I would like to thank Fiction Guild for this riveting gem of a book.

    This review was written for The Wedding Dress.
    This is my favorite book by Rachel Hauck yet. I'm really becoming a fan of stories with dual timelines, where the reader hops between the past and the present. Charlotte and Emily are both captivating leading ladies who felt like my friends by the end of the book. The journey of the mysterious wedding dress was so unique and intriguing. I didn't want to put the book down.

    Readers will not be disappointed with this tale. It's romantic and nostalgic. It's mysterious and surprising. Historical and contemporary fans alike will enjoy it. The love stories are certainly included and they play a pivotal role, but the real focus is on the individual journeys of the women. Watching them each discover who they are and where their faith lies creates a remarkable story.

    I LOVED finding out how all their lives were connected and the ending was perfect. The story (and message) of the dress itself was beautiful. This entire series is one to keep and read over and over. I highly recommend it.

    I received a free copy from Thomas Nelson & Zondervan's Fiction Guild. No review, positive or otherwise, was required - all opinions are my own.

    This review was written for The Wedding Dress.
    I previously read this title back when it was released in 2012 but had very little, if any memory of it since then. Reading it again was like for the first time - both riveting, mysterious and awesome all rolled into one.

    As the title suggests - The Wedding Dress is about yep a wedding dress but about four very different woman who the dress finds its possession in. Our present day Charlotte is almost propelled into purchasing an old battered trunk from a overly persuasive (if slightly hypnotic) auctioneer. Spending way more than she should have - she brings home a welding shut trunk weighing almost less nothing apart from the weight of itself.

    Once opened - the aforementioned wedding dress is revealed and so starts a dawning realisation that this tale is definitely a saga and will each previous owner of the dress will form an intricate portrait once revealed.

    The Wedding Dress could well fall into the typical chick lit genre and starts off very much that way but soon morphs into something far deeper and more satisfying. Each previous owner of the dress has a story unique to her history and encourage the reader to find out just how they all magically link together. And despite the different eras and customs of each, the self same love story is told.

    I encourage anyone who loves a sweet yet satisfyingly deep narrative to give this one a go. You wont be sorry you did.

    This review was written for The Wedding Dress.
    Having read and enjoyed Rachel Haucks The Wedding Chapel, I was thrilled when The Wedding Dress showed up at my door as a review opportunity from The Fiction Guild. It surely did not disappoint. I generally despise stories in which there is a sense that the space/time continuum is disrupted, but for some reason, that doesnt bother me one bit in Ms. Haucks books. I love the connection between characters over time, and I also really enjoyed the flawed but loveable nature of Charlotte, and how most women could probably relate to her. I also really loved learning about Emily and the time period in general. I have no criticism of the book at all, and would recommend it for anyone who likes Christian romance.

    * I was provided this book in exchange for my honest review by The Fiction Guild. *
