The New York Times bestseller from award-winning author Rachel Hauck!
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.
"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
"Hauck seamlessly switches back and forth in this redeeming tale of a shop with healing powers for the soul. As Cora and Haley search for solace and love, they find peace in the community of the charming shop. Hauck succeeds at blending similar themes across the time periods, grounding the plot twists in the main characters’ search for redemption and a reinvigoration of their wavering faith. In the third of her winsome wedding-themed standalone novels, Hauck focuses on the power of community to heal a broken heart." —Publishers Weekly

Great book with an amazing message
This book truly touched my heart and illustrated throughout the book that the love of Jesus meets us where we are and is always there and waiting for us even when we don’t think we deserve it. This book has an amazing story and I couldn’t put it down.
THE WEDDING DRESS
I loved how the 100 years were woven in and out of the present/ the past. Excellent story and I lived the ending.... the symbol of Jesus and love.
TH E WEDDING DRESS
THE WEDDING DRESS by Rachel Hauck. She has done a beautiful job of an intriguing story of a dress and the four woman that were connected to it. How interesting to have Charlotte owning a boutique, but unable to find her special one. Going to an estate sale and bidding more, or even bidding and hope Tim, fiancé, would understand. Old battered trunk,a lock that wasn't easy to get opened. Showed the courage and faith these 4 woman had. Emly 1912, Mary 1939 Hilary 1968.
Given ARC. by Thomas Nelson for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
