Publisher's Summary

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? Who welded the lock shut and tucked the dog tags in that little sachet? Who left it in the basement for a ten-year-old girl? And what about the mysterious man in the purple vest who insists the dress had been “redeemed”?
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 her own story of promise, pain, and destiny. And 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.

Pleasantly Surprised

I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would. I downloaded this book for a road trip I was taking and wanted something easy-listen. I've had a lot of thinking/action books lately and wanted something more simple. I enjoyed the back and forth between the past and the present. I could see where they were going with it a bit early on, but one part near the end did surprise me. It was a fun listen, worth your credit if you like Christian Romance. I'm very picky about my Christian literature because I like good writing, likable characters, and a plot that makes sense and makes me feel for the people involved. This book did those things and it was an enjoyable listen. The narration was also easy to listen to and pleasant. Best book ever!?!? No. Would I highly recommend it? Eh... I'd recommend it, but not highly. It was nice. Not an amazing work of literature, but I'm willing to check out more by this author based on this book.

The Wedding Dress

A delightful surprise!!! I picked this book during one of the $4.95 deals and did not know what to expect. I loved it! This is an inspirational romance and mystery. It is actually two stories about two different women (one from 1912 and one from today). The story goes back and forth between the two stories, eventurally connecting these two women. I will definitely look for more books from this author. Jennifer

Nice

This is a really nice book, it doesnt have a gripping storyline but is so lovely you want to keep listening. I really felt i knew the central character and was drawn into her world. I would recommend this to anyone who just wants to relax and listen to a nice book.
