Lies and Other Acts of Love

By Kristy Woodson Harvey


Lovey is entering a new phase, having raised five very different women with her soulmate; she is now faced with the possibility of life without him. Her once grandiose life has now become a whirlwind of nurses, caregiving and latent fear. Lovey’s darling granddaughter was once the pride and joy of the family, always doing what she was supposed to do. However last year, just days before her idyllic wedding, she called it off and married a traveling musician. Now, as everyone’s routine is getting back to normal, Annabelle’s life is thrown upside down. As she tries to piece together the truth, she learns that her family has been hiding their own secrets. Will Lovey and Annabelle be able to sort out their lives and keep the peace or will their family be forever dissolved?

Kristy Woodson Harvey is an incredible author. The short chapters make it easy to read during the most chaotic of schedules and at night, as every reader tries to squeeze in one more chapter before sleep. However, each chapter tells its own tale and is chocked full of emotions and adds another layer to the overall plot. This story is told from both Lovey and Annabelle’s points-of-view, with Lovey reminiscing about her past, as well. Readers will be taken on an epic journey through the decades as they live vicariously through these women.


Yet another incredible read from North Carolina author, Kristy Woodson Harvey. I absolutely love her writing and can’t wait to see what she writes next.
