When bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand says blogging bestie Kristy Woodson Harvey is “a major new voice in Southern fiction”, she wasn’t kidding… This voice is roaring back onto the scene with a new book (the first in a series we hear!) about the lives and loves of a mother and her three daughters. In Slightly South of Simple Kristy explores the complex bonds between these women and weaves a tale that is filled with Southern charm and heart.
One can’t help but be enchanted by the small coastal town of Peachtree Bluffs, Georgia, and fall in love with its inhabitants. Kristy’s love of beautiful settings shines through in her descriptive prose and if Ansley, the mother with an interior design business, were a real person, we’d hire her on the spot! Who wouldn’t want a home decorated with Barbara Cosgrove lamps and Pine Cone Hill textiles and a garden full of blue hydrangeas?
Whether you’re heading to the beach this summer, or whiling away the day on a swing with a green smoothie in hand, you need to spend some time Slightly South of Simple. We guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
P.S. After many years of reading Kristy’s blog, Design Chic, and following her on social media, we’re finally getting to meet her in person and toast her success today!
