A Happier Life Garden Party with Kristy Woodson Harvey

garden party with kristy woodson harvey july 5 at roanoke island inn for novel a happier life Set against the lovely waterfront of Beaufort NC amid legendary summer suppers and historic house tours, A Happier Life cements Kristy's claims to a chaise in the Beach Read Queens cabana.  A Southern hostess with the mostest, Beck Saint James will never know her granddaughter, Keaton, or that she will be the one to unravel the mystery surrounding her disappearance, along with her husband Townsend, forty years ago. As Keaton peels back the layers of their life, along with hers, she discovers a family (and town) saga in which the past has remained frozen in time- along with the Saint James home- yet continues to affect the present and future of everyone who sat at Beck's Last Supper. A Happier Life asks the unanswerable question- how would you end a beautiful life if you knew that life was coming to an end? With a mix of romance and mystery, Harvey's unforgettable novel proposes that maybe, just maybe, there is an answer and maybe it is the perfect ending.
