Mary in 1939. And Hillary in 1968. Each woman teaches Charlotte something about love in her own unique way.

Download or read book The Wedding Dress written by Carrie Young and published by University of Iowa Press. This book was released on 2000 with total page 136 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: These finely wrought stories unfold in the Dakotas during the struggling pioneer days and bone-dry landscape of the thirties as well as the verdant years that followed, where the nighttime plains are bathed by softly radiant harvest moons shining down from dazzling northern skies. Young's absorbing narratives begin with the pleasant sense of “Once upon a time...” anticipation, but the firmly sketched details, warm humor, and vivid characterizations reveal an unanticipated and satisfying realism. The haunting title story is about a beautiful and tragic pioneer woman and her wedding dress; her gown takes on a life of its own and turns into an enduring symbol for the grace and compassion of homesteading women on the plains. In “Bank Night,” a hired hand working during the midst of the Depression wins $250 at the movies, careening him into a single night of notoriety that becomes a legend in its time. “The Nights of Ragna Rundhaug” tells the tale of a woman who wants only to be left alone with her white dog, Vittehund, and her crocheting but instead is propelled into a life of midwifery “because there was no one else to do it.” The babies have predilection for arriving during blizzards and always at night, when she must be transported across the dark plains by frantic husbands who have fortified themselves with strong drink and headstrong horses. All the stories in The Wedding Dress are linked by the enigmatic Nordic characters who people them and by the skill with which Young draws them. Emotions run so deep that they are seldom able to surface; when they do the interaction is extraordinarily luminous, both for the characters themselves and for the fortunate reader. The Wedding Dress is for all readers, young and old.

There, brooding historian Dr. Jared Butler will help her become the legendary Lady Aislinn…unless his surly attitude tempts Emma to slay him with the lady's sword first.

Download or read book The Wedding Dress written by Nicole Conn and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2001-05-15 with total page 115 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is the story of a single wedding dress and its remarkable journey throughout the ages. It is the story of the women with whom the wedding dress comes into contact as it is handed down from generation to generation, as it weaves a history, not only of their lives, but of the countries in which they live. We follow the sometimes sweet, sometimes tragic, always fascinating stories of women and men who fall in love--and we learn that marriage is only the first step in a partnership. It is also Madeline's story, a thirty-seven-year-old documentarian researching a project on divorce in 1997. The assignment initially reflects her own feelings about the tradition of marriage; that women young and old identify with pinning dreams and futures upon a tradition pervaded by romantic ideals--but that every year in the United States, fifty percent of those dreams are destroyed by divorce. In the midst of her project, Madeline is left an inheritance of a magnificent wedding dress and a hope chest filled with family heirloom memorabilia; diaries, journals, and letters. What she unearths is a migration to the past that soon becomes an obsession. T

Download or read book The Wedding Dress written by Fanny Howe and published by Univ of California Press. This book was released on 2003-11-25 with total page 182 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Novelist and poet Howe suggests new and fruitful ways of thinking about both the artist's role and the condition of doubt. In these original meditations on bewilderment, motherhood, imagination, and art-making, Howe takes on conventional systems of belief and argues for another, brave way of proceeding. In the essays "Immanence" and "Work and Love" and those on writers such as Carmelite nun Edith Stein, French mystic Simone Weil, Thomas Hardy, and Ilona Karmel--who were particularly affected by political, philosophical, and existential events in the twentieth century--she directly engages questions of race, gender, religion, faith, language, and political thought and, in doing so, expands the field of the literary essay. A richly evocative memoir, "Seeing Is Believing," situates Howe's own domestic and political life in Boston in the late '60s and early '70s within the broader movement for survival and social justice in the face of that city's racism. From publisher description.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Silk, tulle, satin and lace-mere yards of fabric to some, but to every bride are at the heart of a romantic dream -- her wedding dress." So begins Maria McBride-Mellinger's paean to the wedding dress, illustrated celebration of this most glorious of dresses. A contributing editor at Bride's & Your New Home magazine, the author brings to this gorgeous volume an appreciation not only of style and fashion history, but also of the cultural and personal significance of the wedding gown. No other garment is as imbued with symbolism and tradition as the wedding dress. From the earliest wedding ceremony, the bride has been dressed in the finest of clothes. Part I, The Wedding Dress in History, traces the development of wedding dresses from the gossamer white linen shifts worn by maidens in ancient Egypt to the delightful and varied creations favored by today's brides. Historical descriptions, vivid paintings, and fabulous photographs take the reader on a journey through wedding gown history, revealing the centuries of meaning that lie behind this special dress, and significance of such accoutrements as the veil, the train, and the bouquet. Today' bride enjoys as vast array of choices when selecting her own wedding dress. It might be a white silk ball gown with a cathedral train and floor-length veil; or a short, golden lace sheath with a lame stole and no veil at all; or perhaps a white leather jacket paired with a tulle miniskirt. The stunning photographs in Part II. The Modern Wedding Dress, show that the dress may be short, long, elaborate, simple, formal, informal, white, colorful, or any combination thereof -- as long as it fulfills the bride's own fantasies. Here areexplanations of the elements that make each dress wonderful: the details of shape -- from princess-line to sheath; of style -- from neckline to hemline; and of fabrics -- from silk to linen. Here, too, is a superb showcase of the top designers' most enchanting creations that will both delight and inspire the modern bride plus a look behind the workroom door at the creation of the dress from design through painstaking construction to delivery Part III, Your Wedding Dress, presents the basic considerations that go into choosing a dress: from the details of the wedding itself, such as season and locale, to the bride's own needs, from cut to comfort. Also included are a discussion of the various shades of white, tips on tactics to flatter every figure type, and advice on veils, undergarments, shoes, handbags, jewelry, and bouquets. Since for many brides the wedding dress is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to indulge in the luxury of custom-made clothing, here is a guide to the salon experience. The author offers helpful advice for dressing on the wedding day, and suggestions on how to preserve the gown after it's all over.
