From USA Today bestselling author of The Wedding Dress comes The Wedding Chapel.
A lonely wedding chapel built as a tribute to lost love just might hold the long-awaited secret to hope and reconciliation.
For sixty years, the wedding chapel has stood silent and empty. Retired football hall-of-famer Jimmy “Coach” Westbrook built the chapel by hand, stone by stone, for his beautiful and beloved Collette Greer, whom he lost so many years ago. The chapel is a sanctuary for his memories, a monument to true love, and a testament to his survival of the deepest pain and loss.
Photographer Taylor Branson left her hometown of Heart’s Bend, Tennessee, to make a new life for herself in New York. She had lots to run away from, not least of all a family history of broken promises and broken dreams. Love catches Taylor off guard when she falls for Jack Forester, a successful advertising executive, and their whirlwind romance leads to an elopement—then to second guesses. Jack, in spite of his very real love for Taylor, is battling his own demons and struggles to show her his true self and the depths of his love for her.
Taking a photography assignment in Heart’s Bend, Taylor is thrown back into a past of family secrets buried deep beneath the sands of time. When Taylor and Coach’s journeys collide, they each rediscover the heartbeat of their own dreams as they learn that the love they long to hold is well worth the wait.
“Hauck’s engaging novel about love, forgiveness, and new beginnings adeptly ties together multiple oscillating storylines of several generations of families. Interesting plot interweaves romance, real life issues, and a dash of mystery. (…) Recommend for mature fans of well-done historical fiction. ” (CBA Retailers and Resources)
‘Hauck tells another gorgeously rendered story. The raw, hidden emotions of Taylor and Jack are incredibly realistic and will resonate with readers. The way the entire tale comes together with the image of the chapel as holding the heartbeat of God is breathtaking and complements the romance of the story.’ – 4 1/2 starred and a Top Pick (RT Book Reviews)

I really enjoyed The Wedding Chapel by Rachel Hauck. It all started with the book blurb and when I saw the cover of the book, I knew I had to read it (I am a visual person!) What I found between the covers of the book was a wonderful, heartfelt romantic story that spanned generations.
The Wedding Chapel shows the true nature of people; how they trust or lack trust, how hurt plays a pivotal role in how we view love, and sometimes, when we let our guard down, faith steps in and people do come through.
The Wedding Chapel is a beautiful story of forgiveness, love and faith and it was truly an inspiring read. I am giving the book five stars and I can most definitely recommend this book.
