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.

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.......
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.
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.
