Something different today for my Wednesday’s Guest feature is this cover reveal for a new book by Kristy Woodson Harvey. I’m a huge fan of her work, as any of you who faithfully read my blog know. I’ve reviewed all of her book here, and I’m really excited about her new book which will release in April.
I love the cover. What do you think?
“Sometimes the key to new love lies hidden in old friendships. In Under the Southern Sky, Kristy Woodson Harvey stirs up a warm-hearted mix of hometown charm and the sort of thoroughly modern problems that bring us back to the people who know us best and the places that remind us of who we really are.” – Lisa Wingate, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of Before We Were Yours and The Book of Lost Friends.
“Two childhood friends discover that love—and family—can be found in unconventional ways in this timely, moving novel from the USA TODAY bestselling author of the “beautifully Southern, evocative Peachtree Bluff series” – Kristin Harmel, internationally bestselling author of The Winemaker’s Wife.
Recently separated Amelia Buxton, a dedicated journalist, never expected that uncovering the biggest story of her career would become deeply personal. But when she discovers that a cluster of embryos belonging to her childhood friend Parker and his late wife Greer have been deemed “abandoned,” she’s put in the unenviable position of telling Parker—and dredging up old wounds in the process.
Parker has been unable to move forward since the loss of his beloved wife three years ago. He has all but forgotten about the frozen embryos, but once Amelia reveals her discovery, he knows that if he ever wants to get a part of Greer back, he’ll need to accept his fate as a single father and find a surrogate.
Each dealing with their own private griefs, Parker and Amelia slowly begin to find solace in one another as they navigate an uncertain future against the backdrop of the pristine waters of their childhood home, Buxton Beach. The journey of self-discovery leads them to an unforgettable and life-changing lesson: Family—the one you’re born into and the one you choose—is always closer than you think.
From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, #1 New York Times bestselling author), Under the Southern Sky is a fresh and unforgettable exploration of love, friendship, and the unbreakable ties that bind.
I’m so excited about this new book from Kristy and am thrilled that I received an advance review copy. I will be reading it soon! I’ve really enjoyed all of her books from the first one, Dear Carolina that I reviewed on the blog, through the Peachtree Bluff Series and Feels Like Falling.
If you haven’t read any of her books, you might want to give them a try. They are all top-notch stories about interesting, and strong, women.
