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.

Refresh Your Guest Room for the Holidays

bedroom refresh with Serena & Lily

 

Before

 

Man, oh man, do we ever love a good before and after. And when it’s our own house, all the better! When we bought our house in Beaufort, our main goal was to keep things simple, clean and streamlined, so we could walk in and feel spacious and spa-like. But, well, let’s just say that, in this bedroom, maybe we took that a little too far!

 

Serena & LIly | bedroom refresh

 

After

 

The guest room is a fairly decent size, and a headboard just never felt like it took up enough space. Even when we eventually put a bench at the end of the bed, it just felt too light. When we saw this Whitaker Sun-Bleached Pine 4-Poster Bed, we knew it was the answer, that we could maintain that light and airy feeling while lending the room a sense of gravitas.

 

| bedroom refresh Serena & Lily

 

The color is absolutely exquisite–and the quality is even better than we anticipated. (And we had high hopes.) This is a heavy, sturdy, incredibly well constructed piece of furniture, truly heirloom quality.

 

| bedroom refresh Serena & Lily

 

And the color blends so beautifully with our favorite Shore Bench. We love the contrast between the textures here. The whole vibe comes off as coastal without being kitschy. And these pillows and throw are a gorgeous finishing touch–as is that stunning Serena & Lily duvet.

 

| bedroom refresh

 

Y’all, we hate to play favorites, but if we could have these artichoke lamps (similar here) in every single room in our house, we totally would. They are so whimsical and fun, true statement pieces that can’t help but draw the eye.

 

 

We’re in love with these Venice Rattan Chairs. They are deep enough to be comfortable without being bulky and the open weave lends that light and airy feel we’re looking to achieve while still being substantial and high quality. Add a neutral pillow, made of the most luxurious linen, for a finished feel.

 

 

Plus, with colder weather coming, this throw is a must-have. (And, don’t forget, my eighth novel, CHRISTMAS IN PEACHTREE BLUFF, releases in 2 weeks on October 26!! SIGNED COPIES are available from Oxford Exchange, and it will be on shelves wherever books are sold!) And this week, Target has a special preorder of buy 2 get 1 free!  Get 1 for yourself and 2 for gifting! What could be better?!

Thrilled for the Christmas in Peachtree Bluff Trailer

 

The fourth book in my bestselling Peachtree Bluff Series is releasing October 26 but is available NOW for preorder from your bookseller of choice! 

In the newest installment of New York Times bestselling author Kristy Woodson Harvey’s Peachtree Bluff series, three generations of the Murphy women must come together when a hurricane threatens to destroy their hometown—and the holiday season in the process.

When the Murphy women are in trouble, they always know they can turn to their mother Ansley. So when eldest daughter Caroline and her husband James announce they are divorcing—and fifteen-year-old daughter Vivi acts out in response—Caroline, at her wits end, can’t think of anything to do besides leave her with Ansley in Peachtree Bluff for the holidays. After all, how much trouble can one teenager get into on a tiny island?

Quite a lot, as it turns out.

As the “storm of the century” heads toward Peachtree Bluff, Ansley and her husband Jack, with Vivi in tow, are grateful they’re planning to leave for the trip of a lifetime. But Vivi’s recklessness forces the trio to shelter in place during the worst hurricane Peachtree has ever seen. With no power, no provisions, and the water rising, the circumstances become dire very quickly…and the Murphy sisters, who evacuated to New York, soon realize it’s up to them to conduct a rescue mission. With the bridges closed and no way to access Peachtree Bluff by land or air, they set sail on Caroline’s boat, The Starlite Sisters, determined to rebuild their beloved town—as well as their family.

In “pitch perfect tones” (Publishers Weekly) and written with her signature Southern charm, New York Times bestselling author Kristy Woodson Harvey explores the magic of Christmas, the power of forgiveness, and the importance of family in a tale that reminds us that, no matter the circumstances, home is always where we belong—especially during the holidays.

      fabulous cover for The Wedding Veil by Kristy Woodson Harvey

There is a LOT going on over here at Kristy Woodson Harvey World Headquarters! (i.e. me at my dining room table.)

But today I’m so thrilled to reveal the GORGEOUS cover for my March 29, 2022 release, The Wedding Veil! My first historical/contemporary novel–and my first hardcover–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. She’s a beauty, isn’t she? Do you recognize the house in the background? If not, it’s Biltmore Estate! And the bride on the cover? Well… You’ll just have to read to find out about her!

​Two childhood friends discover that love—and family—can be found in unconventional ways in this timely, moving novel from the USA TODAY bestselling author of the “beautifully Southern, evocative Peachtree Bluff series” (Kristin Harmel, NYT bestselling author of The Book of Lost Names).

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, Cape Carolina. 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.
