(I received this book from a GoodReads/First Reads giveaway, and I thank the author and publisher for their generosity. This in no way influenced my opinion, which is ,as always, 100% mine) I will never regret being hit in the head by a falling copy of Sullivans Island a couple of decades ago. With that, I was catapulted into the low country world of Dorthy Benton Frank. And her latest work lives up to her reputation. Another fun look at a multi-generational family full of lies,secrets and innuendo balanced with love, generosity and characters you either want to kick to the curb or promote as saints. Ashley and Ivy, the two children of Liz and Clayton, their proverbial loves, losses, wins and paradoxical lives. On the Barrier Islands, it is an adventure living in Hurricane Alley, but those who do, love the tumult and the quiet of being off the beaten path. Their homes may be stable, but their lives, for good or for I'll, may be as roiling as the ocean right outside their doors

Not up to this author's standard. Seemrd thrown together. Character development poor. Story line muddled. Ending somewhat  too "happily ever after", and rushed. When I read one of Dot's books I start slowing down for last 50 pages not wanting it to end. I couldn't wait for this to be over. Loved her other books!

So disappointed in this book. The book's premise and characters had potential but she couldn't make it come alive. Flat, uninteresting characters. Predictable storyline. Dialogue unrealistic. I just got aggravated reading it because it was so poorly crafted. How did this get published!?

The Problems are Hidden Dorothy Benton Frank writes novels primarily set in the Low Country of South Carolina, usually around Charleston. Typically, they are interesting and enjoyable stories. This novel, The Hurricane Sisters A Novel, touches on many social problems through several different characters. The writer has ingeniously infused the characters with problems, all of which lead to the surprising conclusion. The book begins slowly, but when the “family secrets” begin to be revealed, the story picks up and begins to move along. I do not recommend this book to young people. In my opinion, it touches on problems about which young people need not be reading. Unfortunately, many young people have seen these problems all too often. Frank, through this book, seeks to help with these issues and try to put an end to them.

I, as a rule really like this authors work. I was anticipating her latest book. But, she was writing about a cause that meant a lot to her, Not to me.. I didn't find it a good read. Very disappointed..

In spite of some of the reviews, I liked the book! It was not quite as good, in some ways, as her others, but who is perfect all the time? I have all of her books, hard bound, paperback, and Nook. I never tire or am disappointed in what she writes, and am looking forward to another great book. I love the lowcountry, and reading about it, since I live in the flat part of the Midwest.

While the plot was pretty good , I can think of many ways in which it could have been made more dynamic. I won't spoil the plot by revealing them. The character development was good and the actual writing was excellent. Still, the plot was a little flat. I will read more from this suthorbin hopes it will get better, but I wouldn't recommend this as an outstanding book. Stephanie Clanahan

I am a fan, but this work does not live up to her previous works. Plot lines are thin & quite predictable, character development almost non-existent. I had to work to read all the way through.

I'm from the south so i appreciated this book about southern women. It aldo brought attention to domestic abuse and the need to help those who are victims.

This book is not so bad. This book keeps making yu worried about if they will be any hurricannes in this book. Or i the main chracters going to die. Another worry is that they will be any hurricanes in the real world. A great read. I recommend o people who like adventure gynres. Obviously, there is not a specific genre that easily proves it but, it is just a good read. What i mean by not so bad it means it us a good book not a great book. I recommend this to early forth graders. I have one more thig to say. I would rate this 3 1/2. This is highly recommended book. A must read. But, i am usally those fiction readers, friendship, and a little bit of fantasy.

Would have given it less than one star if I could

Every family has their differences but in the end, you are still family and when times are tough, your family should be there. At times this book was a little slow but the premise was good. I think I struggled with the book since I listened to it. I was not a fan of the narrator and I think I may be a little biased.
