Wonderful book and series. However, on Kindle I am unable to get the next book in the series, Return to Sullivan's Island. It is unavailable on Kindle. Folly Beach is not available either. I love all book by Dorothea Benton Frank. It details emotions and situations that many of us experience in our families. It is fun and enlightening to read about the fun way they handle it. Her writing is very descriptive and I learned so much from places they traveled to.
I've now read four of Dorothea Benton Frank's Lowcountry books and have loved each one. The characters come alive on the pages and I find myself thinking about them all the time before I finish the book. Hers are not the type of books you "have to get into," because you are captured in the first few pages. I am also learning a lot about the Lowcountry area and find it fascinating. This is an author I am sticking with!
I have listened to and read many of DBF's books, but I had to return the audible copy of it and "read" the book. As a rule "authors" should not narrate their own books. But I really didn't care for this Pawleys Island after "reading" it either. It almost seemed like someone else wrote it. I hope the books I have not read yet are not like this one...because I really do like her stories.
Last year I actually traveled to the Low Country of South Caroline, simply drawn by Doretha’s descriptions and stories. To say she is a favorite author of mine would be an understatement.
I visited Pawley’s Island, Isle of Palm and all the other places she writes of. They had to drag me kicking and screaming out of Charleston!
To top it all I actually got to a luncheon and book-signing and sat at the Author’s Table with Ms. Benton-Frank.
I am her avid stalker?!!
Anything she writes is sure to be filled with history, humor and huge tales of dysfunctional familes and friends.
I have read this book several times, just as I do with all her books! You will love her.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book because of visiting Pawleys Island so often. I smiled as the story traveled over roads that I travel & even experienced weather that I had experienced. I enjoyed how this book demonstrated the growing of women of all ages. New carreers, new relationships & new homes were discovered & molded into life changing experiences. It is the story of a brutal divorce and how it effected so many. Even the worst of times allows us to grow, meet wonderful new people & even open our hearts to solid new relationships. Love the book.....
Disappointing shallow dialogue and character development. I have loved several of this author's books but this will not be one I remember as realistic or tasteful or representative of what being a strong woman from the south means. There is some disappointingly bad dialogue between a mother and her teenage daughter, which comes off as treating what could be a serious and important coachable moment about body image as something that can be resolved with flip comments. The death of a child and the complications of an extramarital affair end up miraculously handled, resolved and disposed of without addressing the realistic feelings that would actually be generated by those events. So disappointed.
I'm a fan of Dorothea Benton Frank. I like her writing style- her descriptions, her characters, the flavor she injects into each scene, and the locales of many of her novels. I find it a good way to just relax and enjoy.
I love her stories about Sullivan's Island so I thought Pawleys Island would be similar. Seeing we live in Myrtle Beach, it is always interesting to read about places fairly close to home. Her characters in this book were not quite as realistic as in her other books but still a good read. I'll always buy her books, she usually writes about people in a way that makes you want to be their friend, to know them better, to be a next door neighbor or at the least, a dinner companion!
