Litfuse Blog Tour: The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck
Charlotte Malone is getting married. Yet all is not settled in the heart of Birmingham's chic bridal boutique owner. Charlotte can dress any bride to perfection-except herself. When she discovers a vintage mint-condition wedding gown in a battered old trunk, Charlotte embarks on a passionate journey to discover the women who wore the gown before her.
Emily in 1912. Mary in 1939. And Hillary in 1968. Each woman teaches Charlotte something about love in her own unique way. Woven within the threads of the beautiful hundred-year-old gown is the truth about Charlotte's heritage, the power of faith, and the beauty of finding true love.

I Loved this book about "Love", it is so very heartwarming and refreshing. The story begins in 2012, but again it begins in 1912. The book keeps unfolding, and the beautiful wedding dress is at the heart of this story. Four different brides! Yes, Love is everywhere, enduring! You can just picture this beautiful dress, and then picture each bride in it. I never really expected the ending in this book, and it is such a great story, that seems to have really happened just as it is written.
We live in the lives of all of the characters with the help of Ms Hauck...I wanted to be back in 1912, and them again at each of the three other weddings.
I would read this book again and again. I highly recommend this historical fiction book!
