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: Designed by Kara Miller Interiors

Kara Hebert Interiors entry  


Happy Wednesday, friends! Hasn’t this week just flown by? It has for us, anyway. 


Kara Hebert Interiors living room  


We are so excited because after one year, one week and six days (but, again, who’s counting?) of being out of the Beaufort house, we are doing photo shoots for our fab friends at Serena & Lily there today! 


Kara Hebert Interiors kitchen  


So, no, we’re not move-in ready or anything, but after a lot of blood, sweat and tears (and painters up on ladders with hair dryers trying to get trim finished!) we have not one but TWO rooms that are ready (ish) for their close-ups! Make sure you pop back by on Friday to check out the kitchen. We’ll also be showing off the third floor, which is mostly playroom but also a little bit family space, next week!

But, today, we’re super thrilled to be touring someone else’s house! This light, bright, beautiful home by Kara Hebert Interiors, gorgeously captured by Brantley Photography, has us feeling calm, relaxed and super inspired. 


Kara Hebert Interiors dining room


We love every little bit, but we have to say that this stunning piece by EMYO art might be our favorite focal point. We’re having serious art envy!

Feels Like falling by Kristy Woodson Harvey

More About Feels Like Falling…

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand) and the bestselling author of the Peachtree Bluff series comes an odd couple tale of friendship that asks just how much our past choices define our happiness. 

It’s summertime on the North Carolina coast and the livin’ is easy.

Unless, that is, you’ve just lost your mother to cancer, your sister to her evangelical husband, and your husband to his executive assistant. Meet Gray Howard. Right when Gray could use a serious infusion of good karma in her life, she inadvertently gets a stranger fired from her job at the local pharmacy.

Diana Harrington’s summer isn’t off to the greatest start either: Hours before losing her job, she broke up with her boyfriend and moved out of their shared house with only a busted Impala for a bed. Lucky for her, Gray has an empty guest house and a very guilty conscience.

With Gray’s kindness, Diana’s tide begins to turn, but when the one that got away comes back, every secret from her past seems to resurface all at once. And, as Gray begins to blaze a new trail, she discovers, with Diana’s help, that what she envisioned as her perfect life may not be what she wants at all.

In her warmest, wittiest, and wisest novel yet, Kristy Woodson Harvey delivers a discerning portrait of modern womanhood through two vastly different lenses. Feels Like Falling is a beach bag essential for Harvey fans—and for a new generation of readers.
