About the book:
The Wedding Chapel (Zondervan, November 2015)
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.
Retired hall-of-fame football coach Jimmy "Coach" Westbrook never imagined anything would come of his labor of love---the wedding chapel he built for Collette Greer, the woman he fell for back in '49. But now an offer has come to turn the chapel into what it was meant to be---a place for love---and Jimmy sees no reason to hang onto his dream any longer.
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 abysmal marriage rate. But love surprises her when she falls head-over-heels for Jack Forester, a top ad man. Their whirlwind romance results in an elopement, and a mountain of doubt. Jack, while genuine in his love for Taylor, can never seem to overcome his own demons to find the words of his heart.
When Taylor takes an assignment in Heart's Bend, the job does more than send her back to her hometown, but into a world of family secrets buried beneath the sands of time.
When Taylor's journey intersects with Coach's, they rediscover the heartbeat of their dreams and that the love they long to hold is right in front of them. And worth every waiting moment.

This latest novel from Rachel Hauck is in my top ten favorite books that I have read this year. Seriously, it is very well-written and with two stories woven together I was completely wrapped up in all of the characters' lives and their stories spanning across generations and years. The chapel that Jimmy lovingly built with his hands has set empty and has been a secret for so many years and this amazing piece of architecture brings Taylor back home. This story just immediately tugged at my heart and really pulled me in beginning with a photograph in 1948 and the devastation of war and then in the next chapter jumping ahead to present day. I loved how the chapters flowed seamlessly back and forth among decades; I never felt confused or lost. I cannot even say enough about this book, just that it is not to miss. It is such a sweet story filled with emotions and the characters all dealing with individual things in their lives and also relationship issues as well creating such a great read.
