Happy 2022, wonderful, amazing readers! We want to thank you so much for making 2021 our biggest, best year yet. May 3, 2010 Mom and I posted our very first blog post, on natural fiber rugs, thinking that we would keep this little spot on the internet for a year, tops. (For the record, we love that first bedroom we ever posted, designed by the Suzanne Kasler, just as much now as we did then.) Eleven and a half years later, we have grown from two followers (Dad and Will) to hundreds of thousands, and we look forward to being here with you every single day! We are always thinking about what you are loving, what you aren’t, what’s new, what’s next, and what makes our hearts beat a little bit faster. We are thrilled to share our most popular posts of 2021 with you. Thank you for another amazing 365 days in the books. And here’s to the next eleven and a half!

The Wedding Veil - Kristy Woodson Harvey

 

I’m so thrilled to share my first historical/contemporary novel- and first hardcover – releasing March 29, 2022, The Wedding Veil!  This is a true book of my heart, and deep diving into the world of Edith and Cornelia Vanderbilt, the first mistress and daughter of Biltmore Estate, kept me occupied during those first, dark days of shut down. The bride on the cover? Well… You’ll just have to read to find out about her

The Wedding Veil | Kristy Woodson Harvey

 

 

The Wedding Veil

BACK COVER COPY

The New York Times bestselling author of Under the Southern Sky and the Peachtree Bluff series brings “her signature wit, charm, and heart” (Woman’s World) to this sweeping new novel following four women across generations, bound by a beautiful wedding veil and a connection to the famous Vanderbilt family.

Four women. One family heirloom. A secret connection that will change their lives—and history as they know it. 

Present Day: Julia Baxter’s wedding veil, bequeathed to her great-grandmother by a mysterious woman on a train in the 1930s, has passed through generations of her family as a symbol of a happy marriage. But on the morning of her wedding day, something tells her that even the veil’s good luck isn’t enough to make her marriage last forever. Overwhelmed and panicked, she escapes to the Virgin Islands to clear her head. Meanwhile, her grandmother Babs is also feeling shaken. Still grieving the death of her beloved husband, she decides to move out of the house they once shared and into a retirement community. Though she hopes it’s a new beginning, she does not expect to run into an old flame, dredging up the same complicated emotions she felt a lifetime ago.

1914: Socialite Edith Vanderbilt is struggling to manage the luxurious Biltmore Estate after the untimely death of her cherished husband. With 250 rooms to oversee and an entire village dependent on her family to stay afloat, Edith is determined to uphold the Vanderbilt legacy—and prepare her free-spirited daughter Cornelia to inherit it—in spite of her family’s deteriorating financial situation. But Cornelia has dreams of her own. Asheville, North Carolina has always been her safe haven away from the prying eyes of the press, but as she explores more of the rapidly changing world around her, she’s torn between upholding tradition and pursuing the exciting future that lies beyond Biltmore’s gilded gates.

In the vein of Therese Anne Fowler’s A Well-Behaved Woman and Jennifer Robson’s The GownThe Wedding Veil brings to vivid life a group of remarkable women forging their own paths—and explores the mystery of a national heirloom lost to time.
