The Man You’ll Marry

From  Elaine Pasquali

Title:  The Man You’ll Marry

Author:  Debbie Macomber

A “magical” wedding dress is the focus of the novel.  Family myth holds that whoever is in possession of the dress will marry the first man she sees.  Thus, the dress is passed on from aunt to niece to niece’s friend, and finally friend’s mother.  The reader witnesses the ensuing romances and romantic struggles.  A fast reading novel that could readily be adapted for a Hallmark Saturday night television show.  The Man You’ll Marry provides an enjoyable,  light change of pace and is analogous to palate cleansing sherbet enjoyed at the end of a heavy meal.
