Book Review - The Wedding Chapel by Rachel Hauck

The Wedding Chapel
By:  Rachel Hauck
Publisher:  Thomas Nelson-Fiction

 For sixty years, a wedding chapel sat silent, waiting for love. But times have changed and the hour has come when it just might be too late.

Jimmy “Coach” Westbrook now retired, has decided to sell the wedding chapel he built for the love of his live Collette Greer.  He fell in love with her the first time he ever saw her back in ’49. 
He has been promised the chapel will be used for the purpose it was intended…Love.  He sees no reason to continue to hope it will ever be used by his beloved Collette.

Taylor Branson left Heart’s Bend, Tennessee and her family behind and is trying to make a name for herself in New York as a photographer.  She falls head over heels in love with Jack Forester, resulting in an elopement and a lot of doubt because Jack can’t seem to overcome his past.  He can’t seem to tell Taylor the words in his heart. 

Taylor takes a job in Heat’s Bend.  As she returns to her hometown she uncovers family secrets that will cause her life to intersect with Coach. 

I was captivated from the first page.  “The Wedding Chapel” spans from post-World War II to the present day, with an emotional ride for each of the individuals as they struggle to find their way back to faith, love, forgiveness and understanding.  This is truly an inspirational book and well worth reading. 

Disclosure: I was given a copy of this eBook by the publisher, Thomas Nelson-Fiction, Zondervan through NetGalley blogger program for review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
