This enchanting retreat captures the essence of luxurious lakeside living while maintaining an air of relaxation that welcomes both residents and visitors alike. From the moment you approach the graceful entrance, it’s evident that the lake house is no ordinary dwelling. 



The architecture seamlessly marries sleek lines with warm textures, invoking a sense of timelessness that’s perfectly attuned to its lakeside setting.



Inside, you’re enveloped in an atmosphere of effortless refinement. Thoughtfully curated, they boast a palette that echoes the tranquil blues and greens of the lake just beyond its windows.



The carefully chosen furnishings strike a delicate balance between style and comfort, offering a space that’s as welcoming as it is sophisticated.



Oversized windows flood the interiors with natural light, creating a seamless connection between the indoor and outdoor spaces. Whether you’re lounging in the cozy living room, preparing a meal in the state-of-the-art kitchen, or enjoying a leisurely dinner in the elegant dining room,



the lake’s serene beauty is always within sight.

Four women come together to save the summer camp that changed their lives and rediscover themselves in the process in this heartwarming new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Veil

Nearly thirty years ago, in the wake of a personal tragedy, June Moore bought Camp Holly Springs and turned it into a thriving summer haven for girls. But now, June is in danger of losing the place she has sacrificed everything for—and begins to realize how much she has used the camp to avoid facing difficulties in her life.

June’s niece, Daphne, met her two best friends, Lanier Bradley and Mary Stuart Harris, during a fateful summer at camp, and the three are inseparable even in their thirties. But when attorney Daphne discovers that Lanier’s fiancé—who just so happens to be her client—has done something highly illegal, she must choose between her job and her friendship.

Meanwhile, Lanier is hiding secrets both new and old that might make Daphne see the situation in an entirely different light. When one of those secrets unexpectedly rises to the surface, it threatens to change the very fabric of their friendship.

But when the women learn that their childhood oasis is in danger of closing, they put aside their own problems and band together with June to save it, sending them on a journey that promises to open the next chapters in their lives.

From an author whose “writing coats your soul with heart” (E! Online), The Summer of Songbirds is a lyrical and unforgettable celebration of female friendship, and a love letter to the places and people that make us who we are.
