THE MAGIC ROOM
by Jeffrey Zaslow
 

Currently, Jeffrey Zaslow is writing The Magic Room: A story about the love we wish for our daughters, due for publication in early 2012. The New York Times bestselling journalist takes us to a remarkable small-town bridal shop, where generations of mothers and daughters have shared precious dreams of love and life. You may not have heard of Fowler, Michigan, much less Becker’s Bridal. But for the thousands of women who have stepped inside, Becker’s is the site of some of the most important moments of their lives—moments that speak to us all. Housed in a former bank, the boutique owners transformed the vault into a “magic room,” with soft church lighting, a circular pedestal, and mirrors that make lifelong dreams come true.  FOR MORE ABOUT THE BOOK VISIT MAGICROOMBOOK.COM
