An old, forgotten chapel holds the key to love and forgiveness.
Retired hall-of-fame football coach Jimmy Westbrook never imagined anything would come of his labor of love—building a wedding chapel for Collette Greer, the woman he fell in love with in 1949. But now a realtor wants the land the chapel sits on, and he sees no reason to hang onto the past.
Photographer Taylor Branson is trying to make a life for herself in New York. Leaving her hometown of Heart’s Bend, Tennessee, she put a lot of things behind her, including her family’s string of failed marriages. When she falls head-over-heels for Jack Gillingham, a top ad man, their whirlwind romance and elopement leave her with doubts. Jack, while genuine in his love for Taylor, can never seem to find the right way to show her he really cares.
When a post-mortem letter from Taylor’s Granny Peg shows up, along with an old photo, she is driven to uncover family secrets and the secret to her own happiness, starting with an assignment to photograph an unknown, obscure wedding chapel back in Heart’s Bend.
Taylor begins a mission to convince Jimmy that the chapel is worth saving—and that forgiveness and healing might happen within the chapel’s walls . . . for both of them.
About the Author
Rachel Hauck is a USA Today best-selling and award-winning author of critically acclaimed novels such as The Wedding Dress, Love Starts with Elle and Once Upon A Prince.
The Wedding Chapel is written by author Rachel Hauck. It is a stand-alone novel and is the first book of Rachel Hauck's that I have read though her books have been on my radar for quite some time.
Author Hauck has woven together stories from the past and the present. There are four storytellers: Taylor, Jack, Jimmy, and Collette. Between the four of the storytellers, the reader is able to fully understand the story. The story centers around a chapel built by Jimmy.
I did not have any problem with the story going back and forth. Family secrets make it very intriguing. It makes for a fast reading novel because you want to find out what is going to happen next.
Heartwarming, emotional and intriguing tale that readers will definitely enjoy.
