Palm Beach Style refers to a distinct architectural and design aesthetic that is closely associated with the work of John and Jane Volk, a husband-and-wife duo who significantly contributed to shaping the look and feel of Palm Beach, Florida. John was an architect and Jane a preservationist and advocates of the mid-20th century, and their influence on the region’s architectural landscape is still evident today.


As advocates for preserving the architectural heritage of Palm Beach, they were instrumental in promoting and maintaining the integrity of the town’s architectural identity by designing in harmony with the existing surroundings and encouraging the use of local materials.



Their work significantly shaped the development of Palm Beach, and many of the homes and buildings they designed have become iconic landmarks in the area.



The influence of their Palm Beach style can also be seen beyond Florida, as their approach to indoor-outdoor living and elegant, tropical design has inspired architects and designers in other coastal regions around the world.



The architectural and design style associated with John and Jane Volk is characterized by Mediterranean and Bermuda influences, indoor-outdoor living, lush landscaping, elegant interiors, a white color palette, and nautical/coastal themes.



Their contributions have left a lasting legacy on the architectural identity of Palm Beach and beyond. Preorder your copy of Palm Beach Style and it will be on your doorstep on the release date of September 5!

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.
