Book Review: The Wedding Shop
In The Wedding Shop, Hauck tells the story of two women whose lives are connected by this bridal storefront. Miss Cora Scott inherited the shop from her great-aunt and has made a life for herself taking care of the local brides at Heart's Bend Tennessee in the midst of the Great Depression, but she herself has not walked down the aisle. She has promised her heart to Rufus, a riverboat captain who she sees only on rare occasions.
Eighty years later, former Air Force Captain Haley Morgan has returned home to Heart's Bend after a disastrous relationship bit the dust and her childhood best friend died. She discovers the wedding shop is about to be turned into a parking lot and she decides she is going to save it.
Hauck is a skillful writer, seamlessly intertwining these two beautiful stories about strong women, second chances, true love, and forgiveness.
If you are a fan of Christian romance, this is one book that you definitely want to add to your to-be-read list. It is actually the middle book of a trilogy. The other books are The Wedding Dress and The Wedding Chapel, neither of which I have read although now I certainly plan to. While the stories are connected, each can stand alone.
