The Wedding Veil by NYT Bestselling Author, Kristy Woodson Harvey releases March 29, 2022

 

 

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.

House Tour: Transformed Tudor in Tuxedo Park

Millner-Busch, Hart tudor home

Good morning, chic friends! I leaving Atlanta today heading to beautiful Charleston for The Secret to Southern Charm signings… but I have had the most amazing time in Atlanta! 

Millner-Busch, Hart tudor home

No matter where your heart lies, this fabulous home from Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles won’t disappoint! 

 tudor home entrance

Traditional elements with the right mix of modern…

 tudor home living room

Hints of glamour in all the right places…

 tudor home living room

And architectural details that accentuate at every turn…

 tudor home living room

This beautiful space is just the right kind of chic.

Tudor home kitchen

Steel doors and windows always make a stunning statement. And we just adore toning down a more formal room with a natural fiber rug.

Tudor home dining room

Upholstered dining chairs feel so cozy and welcoming. They’re a family-friendly touch in a formal dining room.

Tudor home family room

The right shade of paint makes a paneled library still feel traditional but also freshened and bright.

Tudor home kitchen

A beautiful banquette is one of our favorite parts of a breakfast room — and such a good use of space!

Tudor home kitchen

Whimsical elements tie this space together perfectly.

Tudor home bedroom

A canopy bed creates instant impact. A settee on the end of a bed is comfy but can look stuffy. This casual alternative is the ideal touch.

Tudor home bedroom

We love a chaise, but it’s not always the right look. This chair and ottoman give the style — and the comfort — in a way that’s right for the space.

Tudor home bathroom

And, of course, every gorgeous home needs an amazing soaking tub. We think this one looks heavenly! 

Thank you so much for visiting with us today. We always love getting to see you!

Resolving to read more this year? Pick up your copy of Slightly South of Simple, the first novel in my Peachtree Bluff series, and preorder book 2, The Secret to Southern Charm, releasing April 3! I have the best readers in the whole wide world! Thank you so much for your support. 

Happy weekend and thank you for making Design Chic a part of your day!
