More About Under the Southern Sky

 

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.

House Tour: The Enchanted (Second) Home

Good morning, chic readers! We love her and we’re sure you do too… Tina of the breathtaking blog, The Enchanted Home, is known for her great taste, her penchant for blue and white and her superb hostessing skills. (If you don’t follow her, don’t wait another minute!)

Today, we are so thrilled to be teaming up with Southern Home Magazine to share Tina’s (enchanted!) South Carolina home with all of you!

In 2017, when Slightly South of Simple, the first book in my Peachtree Bluff Series, released, Tina hosted a party at her beyond fabulous Long Island home with dear, darling mutual blog friends. We all started our blogs at the same time, about a decade ago, and to finally be in the same place at the same time was a dream!

It was almost as dreamy as the party that Tina threw for all of us, in fact… Let’s just say that the only thing that could possibly wow as much as Tina’s homes are her hostessing skills.

While the overall feels of the homes in South Carolina and New York are a little different, they both have that signature Tina touch that makes them stunning, special and warm all at once–just like the woman who designed their every detail!

And they both contain plenty of the blue and white that she has become known for and that her store practically can’t keep in stock!

We have had the pleasure of sitting around Tina’s glamorous dining room table. And now we’d like nothing more than to sip champagne on her laid-back porch. What is your favorite space in this perfect Southern home?

 

Thank you to Southern Home for allowing us to feature! And kudos to John O’Hagan Photography for displaying this stunning home in style!
