Overview

Pawleys Island by Dorothea Benton Frank

Dorothea Benton Frank presents a refreshingly honest and funny novel about friendship, family, and finding happiness by becoming who you're meant to be.

Catapulted from her home, her marriage and her children, artist Rebecca Simms has come to Pawleys Island, South Carolina, to hide herself from herself. Little does she know that on this “arrogantly shabby” family playground, she’ll encounter three people who will change her life: a wise and irresistible octogenarian who will pry her secrets from her, a gallery owner who caters to interior decorators and heaven save us, tourists, and a retired attorney from Columbia who’s complacent in her fat and sassy life until Rebecca’s stormy advent...

Having read all of Dottie Frank's books, I wondered if this one could hold my interest, I couldn't put it down!! I love her witty humorous portrayal of women who deal with their lives and relationships with courage and wisdom(sometimes!). She makes the Lowcountry come alive similarly to the way Pat Conroy makes one long for the Tidewater country. What a great read--can't wait for the next one!!

I was just introduced to Dorothea Frank, I have finished five of her many titles at this point. I enjoy her style, in reading her works you learn about yourself just a bit more each time. Keep up the good work.

I agree - Dot has done it again. Once you read one of Dot Franks' books, you will be hooked. I loved this story with it's strong women characters and obstacles they must overcome, as well as the relationships that develop between them. Dot will have you feeling like these are your best friends. Usually I can figure out what's going to happen next - but not so with Dot's books. She surprises me at every turn. I tend to laugh out loud (or cry) when I read something I didn't expect - and believe me - Dot WILL make you laugh. She is a very witty lady who puts a charming southern - low country spell in each of her stories. If you're from the south - you will get it. If you're not - you will wish you were from the south. Surprise's at the end with Pawleys Island as the back drop - this book is perfect.

Speaking as a westerner, I totally sunk my teeth into this Lowcountry tale. Every character jumps from the pages as a true Southern experience. From the first page, to the last of Pawleys Island, the wisdom and humor of Dot Frank's written word touches hidden places within your soul. It's a must read, summer or winter!

Author Dorothea Benton Frank reads her fifth Low Country tale with confident charm, carrying listeners to a small South Carolina island. Those who enjoy low-key stories centering on family and friends with a touch of surprising excitement will find much to relish in this story. Abigail Thurmond and Huey Valentine are an idyllic if unique pair. They're the best of friends, enjoying each other and the lazy-hazy days on Pawleys Island. Abigail, a retired attorney, came to he island from Columbia; Huey has lived there for some time with Miss Olivia, his 80-plus year old mother. Their home is he family plantation, and his business is Gallery Valentine, a shop that caters to decorators and all who enter there. Enter Rebecca Simms, a gifted artist whose works Huey is happy to display. However, Rebecca isn't just visiting the Island, she's running from what has been too painful for her to endure. Leave it to Miss Olivia to find out exactly what that might be. Then leave it to Huey and Abigail to help heir new found friend. An especially pleasing listen. - Gail Cooke

I thoroughly liked this story. reading about southern life is soothing to the soul. Makes me think of gentler times and the caring and friendship between a different assortment of people.

I enjoyed the inside peak into divorce law but this story was a bit sappy. It tried to pull on your heart strings a little too hard. 'Isle of Palms' was better.

This is my first time reading Dorothea, I look forward to reading more of her books. The charactors were people you could relate to.

I didn't get a damned thing done today because I could not put this book down. Read all day long and reveled in the richness of the characters, situations and alternated between smiles, disgust, tears and...... well just feeling very satisfied! Love this author!

Artist Rebecca Simms turns to Pawleys Island as a sanctuary from her tumultuous past. In this quaint town, she finds a cast of characters who are desperate to know her past and help her have a better future. Abigail Thurmond left the drama of the courtroom behind, when she retired to Pawleys Island to begin a new career as an author. However, when she meets Rebecca, Abigail knows she must dive back into her old career, to fight for Rebecca. Dorothea Benton Frank’s writing is a bit predictable, and light-hearted, which makes for a good beach read. Though this is the fifth book in the series, it works well as a standalone. The setting of Pawleys Island makes this a great vacation for one’s mind. Notes: This review was written for My Sister's Books. This review was originally posted on the Ariesgrl Book Reviews website.
