The Wedding Chapel

The Wedding Chapel by Rachel Hauck

The Wedding Chapel follows several couples over a span of 60+ years.  Although I am usually not a fan of flashback novels, I am a fan of this book! 
I love fictional books that have a theme.  Now, I am not sure I always understand the intended theme of a book.  However, the themes I have in my head for The Wedding Chapel are: communication matters, nasty people can destroy many lives, and good people can make a difference in someone’s life.  (OH!  And although you can’t go back, you can go forward in a way that diminishes the mistakes of the past!)  You can hold onto hurts for years and years.  You can THINK you understand something correctly – but you don’t.  Mean people often know they are mean!
One of the minor characters, Sam Gillingham, is a person I would like to know – along with his wife!  He says, “You got anger?  You talk to the Holy Spirit. ‘Help me.  Give me your peace, your joy.”
There are too many stories to list and I am afraid I will give too many hints.  It is a GREAT book!  I loved it!

**I received this book in exchange for my honest review.**
