Description : Under The Southern Sky

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.

My Review

Sometimes trauma binds us together.

In the case of Amelia and Parker – it certainly was the catalyst.

Amelia is reeling from an unexpected divorce, and Parker is still grieving his dead wife.

They’ve known each other for years, but this summer was the one that brought them together. I loved watching it happen.

There are so many details that the author included that really made it easy for me to believe I was on the coast of NC.

I loved the family dynamic, and the intricacies of the plot line.

This would be a perfect beach read, or for lounging on the couch if you’re escaping the heat. I really enjoyed this book.
