Shannon McManus, Janet Metzger, Rebekkah Ross, and Megan Tusing narrate Harvey’s (Under the Southern Sky) novel about an heirloom wedding veil and the women who wore it. Edith and Cornelia Vanderbilt’s family originally owned the veil that Julia Baxter is scheduled to wear at her own wedding at the famed Biltmore House in Asheville, NC. Julia’s grandmother Babs remembers the veil, passed down from her mother, with fondness from her own wedding, although, as a recent widow, she is struggling to move on with her life. All of the women who have worn the veil have had to make difficult life choices, so Julia considers calling off her wedding at the last minute because she does not want to jinx the luck of the veil. Each narrator convincingly voices one of the four women and their thoughts about weddings, marriage, and life.
VERDICT Recommended for those who enjoy romance, women’s fiction, or historical fiction and feel a kinship with North Carolina.
