The Wedding Dress

Rachel Hauck
Also Available In

The New York Times bestseller from award-winning author Rachel Hauck!

"A tender tale that spans generations of women, each a product of her time and ahead of her time. A beautiful story laced together with love, faith, mystery, and one amazing dress. Rachel Hauck has another winner in The Wedding Dress!" -Lisa Wingate, bestselling author of Before We Were Yours

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.

"The Wedding Dress is a seamless tale of enduring love that weaves the past and present in an intricate, wedding dress mystery. Hauck again manages to mesmerize for well over 300 pages with quirky characters, a compelling plot, and a satisfying happily-ever-after. Highly recommended!" -Denise Hunter, bestselling author of the Blue Ridge Romance Novels

"The Wedding Dress will capture you from page one with a story only Rachel Hauck could weave." -Jenny B. Jones, award-winning author of There You'll Find Me

"Rachel Hauck enchants us again! Tenley and Birdie are bound together by the understanding that creativity is a guiding force and that their stories must be told. A tale both bittersweet and redemptive, The Writing Desk is your must-read." -Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author

Sunday Afternoon Reading
5 stars By Felicity, Dec 30 2015
Rachel Hauck writes beautiful, whimsical fiction.  This book is one of her best works that I have read, reflecting her imaginative style in a way that is both realisticbelievable and captures the reader, which is impressive.  I haven't read any other author who can write that style, and this is one of her best works.  (In my opinion- her best work to date.) She weaves a tale of love spanning 3 previous generations of women and reaching out to Charlotte (the main character), a woman whose family is now gone.  The women are connected through the Wedding Dress, which the previous 3 women wore, and Charlotte now owns.

Personally, I love this tale because it speaks of God's love reaching out to the orphaned, and speaks of hope and love for anyone who may feel that they are alone in the world.

Read this book on a quiet afternoon with a cup of tea, and let Rachel take you on a sweet journey.
