READ The Wedding Dress

Tin hand stitched and timeless in its design But where did it come from Who wore it Who welded the lock shut and tucked the dog tags in that little sachet Who left it in the basement for a ten year old girl And what about the mysterious man in the purple vest who insists the dress had been redeemedCharlotte's search for the gown's history and its new bride begins as a distraction from her sputtering love life Bu. While I did like the underlying premise of the bookany enjoyment was outweighed by the author's amazing ability to include two major race tropes while only having ONE character of color There is the whole magical negro trope represented by Taffy the black dress maker She appears makes this magical dress of which the entire novel is centeredthat transends time and of course imparts her wisdom on Emily about the courage she is going to need to make the right decision as to which person to marry Then becasue apparently no novel set the south can be without this element there is the great white savior trope OF COURSE the author had to mention serveral times how Emily fought for the rights of the convict workers and how brave she was for being the first white women to wear a wedding dress made by a person of color with no mention of the danger or sacrifice of Taffy Its always about how revoluntionary white people are when it comes to race issues sighI laughed when i saw this novel classified as historial fiction By the time I read that Emily was arrested for breaking Jim Crow laws but Taffy got away without punishment in 1912 i had already made up my mind this book should stay firmly on the purely fiction shelf

UGH I did not know that this was religious fiction going into it By the time I figured it out which wasn't too long all the characters have the same language about God and Him and churchiness I wanted to know what happened in the end so I skimmed it For that I give it 2 stars I was so disappointed that it is as religious as it is I mean why ruin a decent story It's one thing if religion is specific to a character If that's who they are fine Details like that add to dimension and can make them seem real But if all the characters have the same viewpoint then it feels like the author's opinion not the characters' Very distracting from the story And that is NOT the point of literature in my view I want to escape not be preached at I want the characters to appear lifelike not puppets As for the writing there was a lot of unnecessary dialogue didn't show character move the story forward or create tension The relationships were all so so not very well drawn There weren't any characters that I enjoyed spending time with I just don't get why this book has such great reviews I suppose it's meant for Christians who want to read something that they know will be safe Iffy writing and heavy handed Christianity Not my cup of tea Kokoro: de wegen van het hart unnecessary dialogue didn't show character move the story forward or create tension The relationships were all so so not very well drawn There weren't any characters that I enjoyed spending time with I just don't get why this book has such great reviews I suppose it's meant for Christians who want to read something that they know will be safe Iffy writing and heavy handed Christianity Not my cup of tea
