Chico’s Book Club Pick: “The Wedding Veil”

Our Fall Book Club Pick

The Wedding Veil
by Kristy Woodson Harvey

Four women. One family heirloom. A secret connection that will change their lives—and history as they know it.

The New York Times bestselling author of Under the Southern Sky and the Peachtree Bluff series brings “her signature wit, charm, and heart” (Woman’s World) to this sweeping new novel following four women across generations, bound by a beautiful wedding veil and a connection to the famous Vanderbilt family.

In the vein of Therese Anne Fowler’s A Well-Behaved Woman and Jennifer Robson’s The GownThe Wedding Veil brings to vivid life a group of remarkable women forging their own paths—and explores the mystery of a national heirloom lost to time.

    I’ve started it and I’m only on page 51 and I’m already hooked! I can’t wait to read how everything is connected!

    I just started reading The Wedding Veil, it’s more interesting to me because I’ve been to the Biltmore Estate so I’m curious as to how the estate is going to connect in the book.

  3. I love The Wedding Veil. I think it’s KW Harvey’s best book, and that’s saying a lot.

    Chico’s in Biltmore Village is one of my main shopping destinations. I look forward to seeing Kristy there.

    Fantastic book, especially if you have been to the Biltmore. Kristy is a wonderful writer and 8 loved her first foray into historical fiction.

    This book was absolutely amazing and I loved when the Chit Chat Chic ladies went live with their conversation about the book. I especially connected with Babs and thoroughly enjoyed her relationship with Julia.
