Description

Pat Conroy called Dorothea Benton Frank's debut, Sullivan's Island, "hilarious and wise," while Anne Rivers Siddons declared that it "roars with life." Here, Frank evokes a lush plantation in the heart of modern-day South Carolina-where family ties and hidden truths run as deep and dark as the mighty Edisto River.

Publishers Weekly Review

May 28, 2001 – A follow-up to Frank's debut novel, Sullivan's Island, this colorful contemporary romance effortlessly evokes the lush beauty of the South Carolina Lowcountry while exploring the complexities of family relationships. When Caroline Wimbley Levine learns that her mother, Miss Lavinia, has supposedly gone mad, she leaves the big city bustle of Manhattan and returns to Tall Pines Plantation. Caroline originally left Tall Pines to escape her feisty, eccentric mother and her drunken brother, Trip, but when Miss Lavinia dies, Caroline is forced to come to terms with her family's troubled history as well her failing relationship with her husband. As Caroline reminisces about her past rebelliousness and her childhood, she realizes that her father's sudden and tragic death many years before served as a catalyst for the family's disintegration. Caroline and Trip also learn that their seemingly selfish and self-assured mother was not so uncaring after all. While most of the story is told from Caroline's point of view, journal entries written by Miss Lavinia open several of the chapters, providing the narrative with additional texture and warmth. Although the novel is short on plot, readers will enjoy immersing themselves in the lives of these deftly drawn, heartfelt characters.

GREAT

A tragedy has befallen me, I have just finished the last book in ms. Frank's Low Country series. They are all safely downloaded on my iPad. Now what do I do, oh wait at my age all I have to do is wait three or four months and reread them and it will seem like the first time. :-)

Seriously, she is a wonderful spinner of Low Country tales, I have fallen in love with every character.

Can't wait for the next one.......

Charming

If you like the south, family traditions, gracious manners and quirky characters, you will enjoy this book. Touching and funny. As a daughter of Yankees who is a pretend southern belle, I loved that south carolina's ACE river basin was almost a character in the story. An enjoyable read.

Plantation

I greatly enjoyed this artful splash of southern culture and charm. Plantation's characters and tale were beautifully developed to the point that her words were drawn into my ear in their native accent and color and not just into my mind's eye. I jeered with the mistresses and disdained the sallow fools then sometimes questioned which were which. A delightful look at relationships spun for all kinds of reasons but mostly out of history and our living it over, whether for ourselves or someone else.
