But over the next few years, Leslie has no problem meeting Mr. Almost Right and accepts their proposal. After all, with the loss of her one true love no one would ever fill that void. Leslie must change what she wants with each new relationship, but what about love?
Fortunately, the thought of settling for less stops her, always in the nick of time. Though the end result, is a closet full of unworn wedding dresses and an aunt who owns a bridal shop and decides to have a charity auction to benefit a local women’s shelter. Join Leslie as she relives each voyage to love and decides which dresses she is ready to cast away. And what about her true love? Has he been there all along, and her engagement rings have sparkled too brightly to see him just beyond?

"Mary Oldham paints with her words- there’s no other way to say it. From the first I had to keep remembering that I was reading, not watching a movie playing out in front of my eyes. I laughed, I cried, I had to reread portions, then read parts to friends to share what was ‘happening now with this woman!’ Leslie became my friend, and became me, as I turned the pages- the sketches of dresses are scrumptious, BTW.I will reread the book and then I’m ready for the movie!"
"What a fun read! A new to me author and I can't wait for more books! Her writing style and voice are new and fresh - she's a savvy and witty author, and the story is unputdownable. Leslie's journey to finding Mr. Right has all the feels - this is a book you won't want to miss. A must read, get your copy today. 5 stars"
"Once I picked it up I could not put it down. I thoroughly enjoyed it."
"The Silver Lining Wedding Dress Auction is much more than the typical romance book. The author gives us an engrossing tale using each distinct wedding dress to tell Leslie's story. What I truly enjoyed was Oldham’s strong female lead brimming with a tenacity which demonstrates that even the worst setbacks in life are an opportunity to become stronger and fight for what you truly desire."
