Jenny’s Two Pennies: Kristy Woodson Harvey is My New Favorite Southern Fiction Writer


Slightly South of Simple

Kristy Harvey’s books always introduce me to a family that I know I am going to love. In her latest book, I met Ansley, mother to three grown daughters-Caroline, Emerson, and Sloane. They each are returning to their childhood beach home in Peachtree Bluff, Georgia with secrets in tow. With a beautiful setting, this story uncovers memories, some sweet and some painful. What emerges is betrayal, lost love, and tragedy, which ultimately leads this family to forgiveness, redemption, and the possibility of future happiness and healing.

The first book in this compelling series leaves me longing for the next installment. Kristy Woodson Harvey is the new southern fiction writer who is quickly becoming a favorite of many.
