Praise

“Zaslow captures the joy, hope, love and magic.” (Top Pick) — Bookpage

“A compelling and sincere chronology of the experiences, tragedies, and love that led them to the shop. His narrative is sprinkled with fascinating statistical information … and insights into the lives and relationships of the four generations of Becker women who have worked at the store … A study of individual lives and dreams, this is recommended for casual readers and those with an interest in cultural and social customs concerning marriage, women’s roles, and parent-child relationships.”

Library Journal

"The Magic Room has all the makings of a cozy, nostalgic wedding read. Tulle, check. Satin and organza, check. Bridezillas, drama and tears? Yes, yes, yes….the highlight of the book is the comings and goings of bride after bride through Becker’s, Zaslow also details the excitement and joy of getting married and the commitment and dedication it takes to stay married."

Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Interesting, rewarding and heartbreaking”

The Washington Post

“Shows the poignancy in everyday love stories.”

The New York Times

“Forget bridezillas.  A best-selling journalist visits a small-town wedding shop to uncover the poignant dreams of real women on the verge of commitment.”

O, the Oprah Magazine

“A tenderhearted portrait of a bridal store in a small Michigan town… In a handful of their stories, Zaslow gently delineates the changing lives of women and finds—in among the mishaps, misunderstandings and tragedies that derail many relationships—ample evidence of the enduring power of marriage.”

People Magazine

“The book itself — to use the manliest possible term — is lovely. As lovely as a bride.”

Detriot News

Anyone looking for happily-ever-afters will find plenty of them here.”

Columbus Dispatch

“Zaslow’s profile of the bridal shop, from the geopolitics of dressmaking to the effects of TV shows like Bridezillas, is almost as riveting as the bridal tales. The author plucks at the heartstrings as he relates all the yearnings of the brides-to-be and the travails they encounter on the way to the altar.”

Kirkus Reviews

“Tender and intimate.”

Publishers Weekly
