From New York Times bestselling author comes The Wedding Dress.

"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

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.

Christian author Rachel Hauk wrote a lovely story about a hundred year old dress and the four brides who were married in this designer dress. Each lady adds something different to the tale. Definitely a light read but well done.

I was really looking forward to reading this book; the idea of a wedding dress, and the stories behind the brides who wore it. I was very disappointed. This book did not even rate 1 star for me, I gave one for the idea. I felt I had been dropped into a 1950's soap opera, or a really BAD romance from that era. Badly written pulp fiction with a christian twist that did not carry the story.

It had a great story line and I enjoyed it until I reached the 3/4 mark and then it just took a turn which resulted in it becoming a typical chick-lit read with a predictable ending.

Engaging story! Touches on some of the history of the South in the early 1900's. One dress, 4 brides and 4 love stories - easy to follow. Hard to put down!

Much better than Once Upon A Prince.
It was a slow start but gradually gained momentum. Lots of tears, but the ending wasn't too cheesy.
