Overview

Full of Grace by Dorothea Benton Frank

The rich atmosphere of South Carolina, Hilton Head and Charleston, is brought vividly to life by Dorothea Benton Frank, a South Carolina native who, with her exquisitely evocative prose, makes you smell the sea air, see the palmettos, and savor the sweet tea, but this time it comes with a side of antipasti.

Hilton Head, a South Carolina retirement heaven -- at least it's supposed to be, but for Big Al and Connie Russo, the move from New Jersey to this southern paradise has been fraught with just a few complications. Especially for their daughter, Grace.

Well, that's what she likes to be called. Her family insists on Maria Graziella. Seriously, enough with the Neapolitan. That might have been okay in New Jersey, but now it's just plain silly, and Grace at thirty-two is, horror of horrors, still unmarried. No wonder her family drives her crazy. Well, that and the fact that she's living with the man she would marry if they both weren't so commitment phobic. Michael is a doctor and a scientist and Grace is pretty sure he's also an atheist. Over the years, Grace has become a bit ambivalent about her faith, but her family is as old-fashioned Italian as they come. So the stage is set for a major showdown that just might change Grace's outlook on life, family, and the New South.

Absolutely LOVED this book! Now I want to go to Mexico to visit the shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe! Enjoyed all of the books I've read so far -- can't wait to read the new one that just came out!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading "Full of Grace". The Russo family are a very interesting and believe was an example an Italian-American family. It was never dull to read about.

I really liked this book. All of her books are about some kind of growth, and this was no exception. This book helps you to see miracles can happen to anyone.

I am a huge fan of Frank. When I saw the review in regards to Franks knowledge of Italians and northerners I was worried but as I read this, I knew she did not let me down. Her descriptions of the Italian family life were spot on. As were her descriptions of northern points of view. (I'm originally from Morristown NJ). The only thing I thought was a stretch was her mothers secret but that is just my view. Other than that I thought the book was great and hoping there might be a sequel in the future!

I loved this book -- I am surprised to see such low ratings here. I found the book so easy to read -- lots of emotions -- happy and sad. I sure do recommend this book.

I have read almost all of Dorothea Benton Frank's books and this is by far my least favorite. The storyline drags from the beginning. I kept reading in hopes the characters would become more interesting - but I was disappointed. Oh well, "can't win them all".
