“Dottie Frank’s books are sexy and hilarious. She has staked out the lowcountry of South Carolina as her personal literary property.”
—Pat Conroy, author of The Prince of Tides and South of Broad

The incomparable Dorothea Benton Frank is back with her latest Lowcountry Novel, Folly Beach. As she has with Lowcountry Summer, Return to Sullivans Island, Land of Mango Sunsets, and so many other delightful literal excursions to this magical Southern locale, the perennial New York Times bestselling author enchants readers with a heart-warming tale of loss, acceptance, family, and love—as a woman returns to the past to find her  future. Folly Beach is a constant delight from “a masterful storyteller” (Booklist) who has already secured her place alongside Anne Rivers Siddons, Sue Monk Kidd, Rebecca Wells, Barbara Delinsky and other contemporary queens of bestselling women’s fiction.


  • Good but slow in places

    By Jay sevens
    This is a good story and a nice subplot. It does tend to drag in places. There was a couple of times that I had to force myself to continue reading out of boredom. Overall a good read but I will not be reading any more of her books in the near future.

    Ended up enjoying the book. I have to admit at the beginning I didn't like the format back and forth in playform. Because itwas one of my favorite southern authors Ipersisted on. True to Dorthea Benton Frank form she did not dissappoint. I even learned something along the way . Thankyou and can'twait to see what she writes next.
