The Wedding dress by Rachel Hauck is a wonderful story about a wedding dress and four amazing stories of love.
One day when Charlotte is driving around trying to think and she finds herself at an estate auction where she buys a trunk for $1000. Soon after that her life is turned upside down. Her fiancée wants to delay the wedding and a strange man in a purple ascot keeps coming around and confusing her with his words of wisdom. When Charlotte opens the trunk inside she finds a wedding dress in perfect condition. As she searches for the original owners of the wedding dress she finds friends, family, and stories of love.
Emily is a young girl living in 1912. Although she recently excepted the proposal from Phillip, her heart is for another man. Philip comes from a successful established family that will not only benefit her way of life but also her families. Emily is torn between her heart and her duties and the established law of segregation and thoughts of equality. As Emily learns to listen to her heart and God’s will she starts an amazing sequence of events that changes 4 generations of lives.
I really enjoyed this book. It is a feel good book. I know the author meant for the book to hold a lot more deep meaning (man with the purple ascot, etc) but I just read it as an entertaining book and enjoyed it. I do feel like the author tried to throw in too many tie ins to biblical stories and biblical references. They didn’t flow with the story most of the time. They more felt like after math snippets added.
