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.

    " Reminiscent of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants... and who doesn't love reading about weddings. A great story, easy read. "

    " Fun to read. Read it in a couple days "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cathie | 2/7/2014

    " It's finally happened. I have fallen head over heels in love with a book. Beautiful story. Wonderful, rich dialogue. Generations of great characters who had the courage to listen to their hearts even through static of societal pressures and easier choices. An absolutely wonderful Christian love story. I was memorized by the preacher at the end of the story, who knew to stop preaching and just get on with the loving. What every union should contain. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 1/31/2014

    " Such an easy read, switching between present and past "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynthia Hickey | 1/17/2014

    " Rachel Hauk did a masterful job of weaving in the dress's beginning and the tales of the four women who became "owners" of the dress. From our modern day woman to the bride of 1912, the secret of the dress and a strange man wearing a purple vest will keep the reader turning the page. Well done! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Olivia | 1/8/2014

    " I like the theme of one dress and four brides. Many times I felt the author was holding back information to make the stories mysterious, and at other times, she just gives away the clues and it ruined the mystery. "
