"A major new voice in southern fiction."â€”Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author
From the New York Times bestselling author of Under the Southern Sky comes a moving debut novel about two mothersâ€”one biological and one adoptive.
One baby girl.
Two strong Southern women.
And the most difficult decision theyâ€™ll ever make.
Frances â€śKhakiâ€ť Mason has it all: a thriving interior design career, a loving husband and son, homes in North Carolina and Manhattanâ€”everything except the second child she has always wanted. Jodi, her husbandâ€™s nineteen-year-old cousin, is fresh out of rehab, pregnant, and alone. Although the two women couldnâ€™t seem more different, they forge a lifelong connection as Khaki reaches out to Jodi, encouraging her to have her baby. But as Jodi struggles to be the mother she knows her daughter deserves, she will ask Khaki the ultimate favor...
Written to baby Carolina, by both her birth mother and her adoptive one, this is a story that proves that life circumstances shape us but donâ€™t define usâ€”and that families arenâ€™t born, theyâ€™re made...
â€śDear Carolina is Southern fiction at its best....Beautifully written.â€ťâ€”New York Timesbestselling author Eileen Goudge
