Publisher Description

The New York Times bestselling journalist and author of The Girls from Ames, Jeffrey Zaslow, takes us to a multi- generational family owned small-town bridal shop to explore the emotional lives of women in the 21st century.
You may not have heard of Fowler, Michigan, much less Becker's Bridal. But for the thousands of women who have stepped inside, Becker's is the site of some of the most important moments of their lives-moments that speak to us all. Housed in a former bank, the boutique owners transformed the vault into a "magic room," with soft church lighting, a circular pedestal, and mirrors that make lifelong dreams come true.

Illuminating the poignant aspects of a woman's journey to the altar, The Magic Room tells the stories of memorable women on the brink of commitment. Run by the same family for years, Becker's has witnessed transformations in how America views the institution of marriage; some of the shop's clientele are becoming stepmothers, or starting married life for a second time. In The Girls from Ames, beloved author Jeffrey Zaslow used friendships to explore the emotional lives of women. In The Magic Room, he turns his perceptive eye to weddings and weaves together secrets, memories and family tales to explore the hopes and dreams we have for our daughters.

Great stories

wonderful well written didn't want to put it down loved the detail and the exploration of the brides and their families

Wonderful storyteller

A beautifully told collection of personal stories that reveals not only the emotions of being a bride but the hard facts of life and the statistics they yield, which are part of the whole love phenomena. Mr. Zaslow always gives me more than I expect in each of his books, and I look forward to the surprises each time I start a new one.

We have lost a beautiful soul from this earth...he is gone too soon. I can only imagine the loss his family feels as I am only a faithful reader and yet I find his death truly heartbreaking.

Sucker for reading ,

The book had a lot of great stories, but did get boring at times.
