“Summer of Songbirds”, following in the tradition of Harvey’s other work, is set in North Carolina, and is based on the author’s experiences at the world-famous summer camps in that area. Also like her other works, this story weaves an emotionally compelling, multi-generational narrative with themes of love, loss, and friendship.

The story follows June Moore, the matriarch of one of North Carolina’s once-pristine summer camps, now fallen into disrepair and in jeopardy of closing forever. When a group of lifelong friends who met at the camp as children learn of the impending closure, they must band together to attempt to save it, balancing the difficulties of adult life with the nostalgia that forms the backbone of their relationship.

Early reviews of this book place it among Kristy Woodson Harvey’s best work, with many calling it essential summer reading for women and fans of the Southern Fiction tradition everywhere. One reviewer stated, “I can honestly say Summer of Songbirds is KWH at her finest, and I have read all of her books. Add this to your TBR, pre-order a copy, request it from the library because I promise, this will be one not to miss this summer.”

The book release tour for this title is currently paused, and will resume on July 11th with the official release of “Summer of Songbirds” across all platforms. The first of many stops on this post-release leg of the tour is planned to take place in Nantucket, MA, with further dates and details being announced as these dates approach.

Harvey’s work has garnered praise from a wide variety of notable outlets in the past, and many of her stories have earned their place on the NYT Bestseller list. Her “Peachtree Bluff” series is also being adapted to the screen in the near future, and is currently in production with NBC.

Kristy Woodson Harvey is a writer, podcaster, and blogger who has been called the next great voice of the Southern Fiction genre, following in the footsteps of Alice Walker, Sue Monk Kidd, and Ann Patchett. Her upcoming novel will round her body of work out to 10 major releases.
