Description

"Her books are funny, sexy, and usually damp with seawater."

—Pat Conroy, author of The Prince of Tides

In Return to Sullivans Island, Dorothea Benton Frank revisits the enchanted landscape of South Carolina's Lowcountry made famous in her beloved New York Times bestseller Sullivans Island. Frank focuses on the next generation of Hamiltons and Hayes, earning high praise from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which writes, "Frank brings to vivid life the rich landscape and its unpretentious folks....A reader need only close her eyes for a moment to feel that thick-sticky heat, smell the wild salt marshes." If you enjoy getting lost in the works of Anne Rivers Siddons, Rebecca Wells, and Pat Conroy—novels brimming with atmosphere and strong Southern charm—you are going to love Dotty Frank's Return to Sullivans Island.

      • content: Robin Miles's spot-on narration transforms this lightweight story into an engaging performance. Beth Hayes, a newly minted journalist, reluctantly returns to Island Gamble in South Carolina to house-sit the ancestral beach house while her mother goes off to teach in Paris. There Beth falls blindly in love with schemer Max Mitchell, and her life becomes a tangled web of lies. Miles authentically presents Beth's heartrending emotions, love for her family, and journey of discovery. Her narration lyrically moves from Beth's young voice to the Southern drawl of her African-American confidante. We almost hear sounds of the ocean waves and breezes that enter the haunted house. Miles's pace and intonation enhance the suspense of a story that might otherwise be somewhat tedious. K.P. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine

        May 11, 2009
        Frank (Sullivan's Island
        ) creates a world in which aspiring writer Beth Hayes, whose chirpy internal monologues and quiet uncertainties make her easily endearing, is as much a character as the house she lives in. After graduating from college in Boston, Beth returns to the South to spend a year house-sitting her family's home, Island Gamble, while her mother, Susan, visits Paris. Frank's portrayal of a large and complicated family is humorous and precise: there's Susan, adoring and kind; Aunt Maggie, a stickler for manners; twin aunts Sophie and Allison, who run an exercise-and-vitamin empire; and uncles Timmy and Henry, the latter of whom has ties to Beth's trust fund. Frank's lovable characters occasionally stymie her pace; there's almost no room left for Beth's friends or her love affairs with sleazy Max Mitchell and cherubic Woody Morrison, though these become important later on. Frank is frequently funny, and she weaves in a dark undercurrent that incites some surprising late-book developments. Tight storytelling, winsomely oddball characters and touches of Southern magic make this a winner.

        Asked to defer her graduate studies at the Iowa Writers Workshop to tend her familys ancestral home on Sullivans Island, Beth Hayes bristles at the idea of putting her life on hold. But she is not her mothers daughter for nothing, and knows its useless to protest. In the South Carolina Low Country, family is all, and with her mother off on a dream job in Paris, Beth holds down the memory-laden fort with trepidation that quickly turns to confidence when she lands a job as a freelance reporter for the local paper. Her first assignment brings her face-to-face with charismatic builder Max Mitchell, a seductive raconteur whose real-estate development is in need of a financial bailout. Thinking with her heart instead of her head, Beth invests in his project, and learns several hard lessons in the bargain. Featuring her trademark down-home southern wisdom and wit, Franks long-awaited sequel to Sullivans Island (2004), her captivating debut best-seller, is sure to please devoted fans.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2009, American Library Association.)
