by Kristy Woodson Harvey
Kristy Woodson Harvey writes the kinds of stories that readers enjoy. Those who have picked up books by authors including Dorothea Benton Frank will want to give this title a look. It is a women’s fiction title that has heart.
As is currently popular (and enjoyed by me), this story travels across several time periods. It spans many years, running from 1914 to the present day. The common thread (no pun intended) is a wedding veil, its history,meaning and beauty a part of the narrative.
This is a story about women who face challenges and changes. Readers will be absorbed spending time with everyone from a bride who feels uncertainty about her wedding in the present day to a grandmother who is making changes. One part of the story that I especially enjoyed had to do with a real people, Edith Vanderbilt and her daughter.
Is there a connection between the Vanderbilts and the other characters? Read this one to find out.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.

“The author easily switches between the time periods to locate momentous events in the characters’ lives and connect each story line with the veil at the center. Harvey, ever a fine storyteller, manages to keep the pages turning.”—Publishers Weekly
“Finding inspiration in the true story of Edith Vanderbilt and her mysteriously disappeared wedding veil, Harvey intertwines a veil’s generations-spanning journey, the lives of the women who wore it, and the strength required to remove the veil and follow one’s heart instead.”—Booklist
