​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.






In Good Taste: Park and Oak Design

Park & Oak Design entrance

Even their name conjures good feelings. Park and Oak Design. It sounds like a firm that brings the outdoors in. That creates simple yet beautiful design schemes that feel totally livable.

Park and Oak dining room


It’s kind of like judging a book by its cover. You’re really not supposed to but, sometimes, the cover does give you a really accurate glimpse into what the book is about.


Park and Oak family room


In this case, we judged a firm by its name. And like that book cover, it did give us a pretty accurate glimpse into what was to come.


Park and Oak butler's pantry


If we had to pick one word to describe Oak and Park Design, we think we’d choose… airy. (It’s hard to choose one word, especially when you’re used to getting 85,000 to describe things.)


Park & Oak Design living room


There’s a minimalistic air about this firm’s work that we find incredibly appealing and totally refreshing.


Park and Oak kitchen


A modern streak runs through all of these designs that pairs well with traditional touches.

And you know how we love a white kitchen!


Park and Oak


We love how simple this kitchen is. You can never go wrong with wood beams, white pendants and a touch of natural fiber.

Park & Oak Design kitchen

It took us a while to warm up to the idea, but we are now big fans of mixing metals. This kitchen is case and point!



These pendants are perfection.

Park & Oak Design dining room

Speaking of pendants, this is one of our favorites. It’s even more stunning in real life!


Saarinen tables are always a favorite. Sleek, modern and totally functional, they’re a great pick for a breakfast room, especially one that isn’t huge.

Park & Oak Design bathroom

The right combination of high and low, rustic and modern, this gorgeous bathroom is the perfect mix of favorite elements blended together in just the right way.


Looking for the perfect spot to work from home?   This home office is perfection!  All in all, we think you’ll agree that the work of Park and Oak is in good taste. Which is your favorite room?

I am over-the-moon about my first starred review from Publishers Weekly! Can’t wait for all of you to read Under the Southern Sky on April 20! It’s available for preorder now wherever books are sold. 

From PW: Harvey (Feels Like Falling) delivers a heart-wrenching tale of love and loss in this tearjerker…Harvey brings her characters to life, including Greer, whose heartbreaking journal entries reflect on scans of the embryos and imagine the family she and Parker would have. These passages are particularly wrenching, making the book’s happy ending all the more moving. Fans of women’s fiction will devour this. (Apr.)
