Years ago Jimmy Westbrook put his heart and soul into building a wedding chapel outside of Heart’s Bend, Tennessee to be used for his marriage to Collette Greer. However, that wedding never occurred. For 60 years that chapel has stood as a testament to his love. He feels it is now time to move on and sell it.
After a whirlwind romance, photographer Taylor Branson married Jack Forester. While Taylor’s business is slowly growing and Jack is a successful ad exec, their marriage is strained and in need of repair after only six months. Both are dealing with past secrets and demons. Taylor will have to face hers when she accepts a photo shoot of the chapel in Heart’s Bend, Tennessee.
Despite Jimmy’s insistence on selling, Taylor believes it is the wrong decision and is determined to change his mind. She knows that she feels the heartbeat of God there and is pretty sure Jimmy does as well. Both will soon find that they must confront their pasts to move forward. Along the way, secrets will be uncovered which could change the lives of many.
This is the first book I've read by Rachel Hauck, but I will definitely be adding her books to my TBR pile! "The Wedding Chapel" is told by alternating characters: Jimmy, Collette, Taylor, and Jack. The story shifts between the present and the past (1948-1951), seamlessly blending everything together to create a beautiful story. At times, the Taylor/Jack storyline is pushed to the side, but stick with it as there is a reason. The characters become more alive to the reader as the story unfolds. While complex, it is very easy to follow and each character is well-developed. This multi-generational tale is full of intricate details and vivid images. It is an uplifting and engaging read which will remind the reader that love requires honesty and risk
