About the Book:
One dress. Four women. An amazing destiny.

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.
My Thoughts:
The Wedding Dress was an engrossing read.  I felt I couldn’t read it fast enough.  Truly enjoyable, the novel is more than a romance.  Deep within the pages lie mysteries that will keep your nose in the book as you eagerly turn the pages to discover the truth.  This novel is full of well-developed characters, an interesting plot, well-chosen settings and one common factor that every girl can relate too, the perfect dress.  It is one of those books you have to force yourself to put down. 
Intercalary weaved; the author does a wonderful job of portraying each woman’s story individually yet woven together, attached by their common bond (the dress).  It will leave you with a smile and touch your heart ever so gently yet dramatically.  I don’t think you should miss out on this one!
