This week’s post is a bit late because I’ve been under the weather. The good news is not leaving my bed unless I had to, means I’ve had the chance to read a couple very good books this week. It also means I get to share some giveaways with you these next couple of weeks. Merry Christmas of books!
The Wedding Chapel is the latest of Rachel Hauck’s novels (and I’m giving a copy away so be sure to go to the bottom!). Like The Wedding Dress, it has historical and contemporary storylines, and two romances developing through the pages of the book. They are connected by a beautiful Wedding Chapel which is a handcrafted demonstration of love that has never been used.The Wedding Chapel is very special. Those with hearts to hear sense something unique and otherworldly within it.
Yet their broken hearts have not found the wholeness of self-sacrificing love. The kind of love that requires full abandonment of self for another.
I found that this novel slowly reeled me in until I hit a point halfway through that I simply didn’t want to put it down. I’d reached the point of connection with each of the stories that I had to know how they were going to play out to resolution. The elderly couple is so sweet. I could easily imagine my Grandma and Grandpa in the roles. And the younger couple will resonate with so many who have been bruised and battered by love that failed them as children. The risks of opening your heart to another when you’ve never had a safe place to fall is heart-wrecking.
The Wedding Chapel gives you the hope to take that step and reach out to the heartbeat of Love. And as a side note, The Wedding Dress is on ebook sale for $1.99 right now. Snag that one while you can!
