THE WEDDING DRESS
Genre: Historical Romance
As a war widow herself, Virginia Ellis is drawn to the "
quiet tragedies and triumphs of women who lost their men forever." She calls on her own emotions to bring forth a story of courage and hope in the face of despair.
News of their task spreads and people give them buttons, thread and lace to add to the dress, which has become a symbol of hope for the future. Even "sightings" of ghostly soldiers do not deter the sisters from looking forward.
This lovely, sweetly touching tale, told through Julia's eyes, is inspiring and uplifting in its message of hope. You will believe in the light at the end of the tunnel and that good can come from tragedy. For all its simplicity, THE WEDDING DRESS is a hauntingly beautiful story with a powerful message, teaching us how to leave the past and look to the future, for even a wedding dress without a groom can have a happy ending. SWEET (Jun., 292 pp., $21.95)
