'Hauck tells another gorgeously rendered story. The raw, hidden emotions of Taylor and Jack are incredibly realistic and will resonate with readers. The way the entire tale comes together with the image of the chapel as holding the heartbeat of God is breathtaking and complements the romance of the story.' - 4 1/2 starred and a Top Pick (RT Book Reviews)

Eighty three year old former high school, hall of famer football coach, Jimmy Westbrook, once built a wedding chapel from stone for his beloved Colette Greer. But he went off to fight in Korea and she left, never to return. Now he's about to sell the chapel.
Colette has made a life in New York, star of a soap opera for 60+ years. She should be happy, but she left her heart behind in Tennessee, with Jimmy.
Taylor Branson moves from Heart's Bend, TN to live in New York as a photographer. She marries Jack but things just don't seem right to either one of them. Then she gets called to Heart's Bend to photograph the wedding chapel. There she discovers secrets, wounded hearts and wonders if life will ever be the same.
Rachel Hauck has the ability to cause her readers to become so invested in her characters that it is unreal. A page into the book, you're hooked. The heartaches and lives of these characters filled my heart and I ached for them. I love it when a book makes me feel this way. They jumped right off the page and into my heart, everyone of them. It's hard to pick up another book to read right after you finish one of Hauck's novels. You just want to hang onto these folks for a good long while, continuing to go over their trials, temptations and joys.
As usual, Rachel Hauck has her own special way of bringing the spiritual message to light. She is not afraid to bring Christ into her books and this is a huge draw for me. I FEEL the presence of the Holy Spirit in her books!
Rachel says in the afterword that she believes God created her to write books and she feels His presence during the process. I have to agree with those statements. How else could she write such powerfully, amazing books to the glory of God? Because that's what her books do: glorify God.
Now I am forced to wait a long time for another of Rachel's good books. I highly recommend this book.
A second love story set in the present is also interwoven throughout, that of Taylor and Jack. They too are natives of Heart's Bend who left the country to find fame and fortune and is so doing find each other. But each has a boatload of baggage that they've brought with them. In spite of that they both want desperately to make their marriage work but fear the unknown. Will the wedding chapel back in Heart's Bend bring these two closer or finalize their split?
A tale of love and lost love, secrets and lies, and healing of wounds is the central theme of this wonderful story. Interwoven with an unshakable faith in God, you'll find yourself rooting for the characters in this charming tale.
