Congratulations to Kristy Woodson Harvey on her new novel, LIES AND OTHER ACTS OF LOVE. I had the amazing opportunity to read a NetGalley copy in March and have been dying to tell you about this novel. It made me laugh, cry, and wish it wouldn’t never end.
Lies and Other Acts of Love kept me glued to the page. I don’t know who I loved more, Lovey or Annabelle, but Kristy Woodson Harvey doesn’t make readers choose. The story weaves both of their narratives, grandmother and granddaughter, together into one beautiful tapestry. The story touched me deeply, making me think of the women in my own family, especially my own grandmother, and the first time my heart was broken.
The women in Lies and Other Acts of Love are strong and resilient, but vulnerable enough that we as readers can relate to them. With a beautiful setting and a look into the lives of those who are blessed to wile away their Summers at the beach house, Harvey gives us a very human look at what it really means to have, and to not have, what is necessary in life, and it has nothing to do with money.
Filled with lively characters, family drama, and unconditional love, readers will enjoy unraveling the mystery of Lovey and seeing Annabelle discover what she really wants in life.
