Author, Rachel Hauck commented, “I’m honored so many are reading The Wedding Dress, a book inspired during a girls’ weekend in Nashville. Our hostess was telling us of finding her daughter’s wedding dress, along with the story of her own gown, and I was suddenly lost in the idea of a wedding dress worn by four women over the span of a hundred years. The idea hit instantly and sank deep. I knew I had to write the story of that dress and the women who wore it.”
The story told in The Wedding Dress is about a dress worn by four women over a one-hundred-year time period. Emily from 1912, Mary Grace from 1939, Hillary from 1968, and then Charlotte, the protagonist, in 2012 is a bride-to-be. As Charlotte finds the dress, she discovers its history, and the story of the women who wore it, before her. Each with a story of promise, pain, and destiny. The Wedding Dress is a story about heritage, the power of courage and faith, and the timeless beauty of finding true love.
