​Two childhood friends discover that love - and family - can be found in unconventional ways in this timely, moving novel from the USA Today best-selling author of the “beautifully Southern, evocative Peachtree Bluff series” (Kristin Harmel, internationally best-selling author of The Winemaker’s Wife).

Recently separated Amelia Saxton, 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, number one New York Times best-selling author), Under the Southern Sky is a fresh and unforgettable exploration of love, friendship, and the unbreakable ties that bind.

WOW! Worth more than a credit

Get it, stay with it, and when you finish this novel it will be one of those few books at the top of your favorites list.
I almost stopped listening after the first few chapters, but as the story unfolded, I realized the sad parts were needed to create the deep layers that unfolded into this well written and well narrated gem, “Under the Southern Sky” by Kristy Woodson Harvey.

Sweet Summer Read with a Happy Ending

If you’re looking for a quick summer read with a happy ending.. this is the book for you. The premise was included an awkward love triangle.. but overall the story was a sweet ‘girl and boy next door fall in love’ story.

Tediously repetitive!

I am not sure I have ever listened to a book that I couldn’t wait to end more than this one. It draws you in just enough to want to know how it ends and that is all. It just keeps on and on and on repeating and going back over the same feelings again and again and again.....yes I am repeating this on purpose to get you into the right frame of mind for this book. There are just too many books in the world to waste HOURS listening to this one.

Another Wonderful Story from Kristy Woodson Harvey

This book was just incredible. I very much enjoyed how Kristy brought us through each characters journey. She is very skilled in the way she writes in first person for her characters so that you can truly get a full idea of what is happening. Her books never disappoint and even when you think you might have figure the story out she surprises you with a twist!
The narration was excellent! The man who voiced Parker truly did a wonderful job capturing the southern accent in a non stereotypical way.

Excellent Beach Read

This was my first book by Mrs. Harvey, but it won't become last. Normally, I am a Thriller gal, however I am so glad I listened to this book. The love story in this book is so sweet and realistic, that I cried several times.

The Best Yet

Kristy Woodson Harvey has written a story that just kept on giving. A story of family, loss, love, new hope. Wonderful to listen to, because the narrators brought the characters alive.
