Customer Reviews For "The Wedding Shop (Unabridged 11 Cds)"Write Your Own Review
I enjoyed this story of Cora from the 1930's and Haley, 80 years later. They both are passionate about helping Brides have their dream day. The Wedding Shop has become abandoned and there is a bid for the land to make it into a parking lot for town growth. Haley has returned home after leaving the Air Force and rediscovers her dream of opening the Wedding shop and returning it to its original purpose. There are some lovely twists and some heartbreaking moments as the story unfolds. I think you'll enjoy this Romance by Rachel Hauck.
The Wedding Shop is a dual timeline story. In the present, there is Haley, ex-Air Force captain who has returned to her hometown of Heart's Bend, Tennessee, to fulfil her childhood dream of reopening Miss Cora's once-famous wedding shop. The past story is Miss Cora's. While the two women initially appear completely different, over time we find they have a lot in common. I thought these commonalities and the clever (and careful) way in which they were gradually revealed was one of the major strengths of the story. I often find one story in a dual timeline novel draws me in more than the other. That certainly wasn't the case with The Wedding Shop. The Wedding Shop is a true winner with an underlying message of God's forgiveness, our identity as children of God, and the lies we allow ourselves to believe. I haven't read The Wedding Dress or The Wedding Chapel, and it's not necessary in order to enjoy The Wedding Shop. Those who have read the earlier novels will no doubt enjoy the references to both. Those who haven't might not even pick up on them if they didn't know there were previous novels. Recommended. Thanks to Zondervan and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.
