Under the Southern Sky

 

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.

MORE ABOUT FEELS LIKE FALLING:
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 extremist 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, Diana Harrington, 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 worn-out 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 her first love returns, 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, 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.

In Good Taste: Meredith Ellis Design

 

It has officially turned cold in North Carolina (Okay, well, high 50s… but it feels cold.) and we are feeling the need to snuggle up and stay close to home

 

Meredith Ellis designed dining room

 

These spaces by Meredith Ellis Design have all the trappings of the kinds of places we want to spend our days and nights right now. 

 

Meredith Ellis designed library

 

Deep, moody blues create the perfect work space,

 

Meredith Ellis designed dining nook

 

And perfectly imperfect gallery walls and stacks of books embody the homey feel we’re craving this winter. 

 

Meredith Ellis designed dining nook

Bright sunny spots blent with rich wood antiques for spaces that are the best of both worlds,

 

Meredith Ellis designed family room

 

And libraries for whiling away sleepy, restful days take precedence.

A deep, real-wood fireplace is necessary,

And bonus points are given for a sloped, dreamy ceiling–

And cozy covers to crawl underneath. 

 

 

Dark wood and bamboo accents ground a space,

And even the mudroom feels dark, moody and just right for right now. We couldn’t love these gorgeous, perfectly designed spaces any more. What’s your favorite Meredith Ellis-designed room?
