According to reviewers, the novel is ideal for book clubs given the multiple perspectives presented in the narrative, coupled with Harvey’s signature smooth writing style.

In a blog post that followed the book’s release, the author thanked her fans nationwide as well as those who stopped to see her on her book release tour. While the tour is now over, signed copies of the new novel are still available for purchase on Harvey’s website.

The audience for ‘The Summer Of Songbirds’ has praised its deeply nostalgic tone that still touches deeply on more serious, mature themes. The book’s intense romantic subplots have made it all the more popular among women’s reading groups, while the light, distinctly Southern overall narrative makes the story accessible and enjoyable to readers of all stripes.

One reviewer said the following of the novel: “I can never resist a good book about the power of female friendships. This was a feel-good read. Witnessing the love among these women—despite their challenges—encouraged me to call my own friends for a summer get-together.”

The novel follows the exploits of four women – three life-long friends, and June Moore, the matriarch of the camp where they spent their summers growing up. When June’s camp is imperiled by financial and personal struggles, the women must reunite after years of estrangement, band together, and save the camp – all while fighting their own highly-charged romantic battles.

‘The Summer Of Songbirds’ is Harvey’s tenth release, and joins many of her previous works on the New York Times Best Sellers list, debuting around #20 for the month of July. Of all her prior releases, this one may be her most personal, having been inspired directly by her own upbringing in the state of North Carolina where the novel is set.

The novel is available now from most major retailers, or directly from the author at the link below.
