“Frank…writes with genuine adoration for and authority on the South Carolina Lowcountry from which she sprang….[Her] stuff is never escapist fluff—it’s the real deal.”
—Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Return to Tall Pines in the long-awaited sequel to Dorothea Benton Frank’s beloved bestseller Plantation. Lowcountry Summer is the story of the changing anatomy of a family after the loss of its matriarch, sparkling with the inimitable Dot Frank’s warmth and humor. The much-beloved New York Times bestselling author follows the recent success of Return to Sullivans Island, Bulls Island, and Land of Mango Sunsets with a tale rich in atmosphere and unforgettable scenes of Southern life, once again placing her at the dais, alongside Anne Rivers Siddons, Sue Monk Kidd, Rebecca Wells, Pat Conroy, and other masters of contemporary Southern fiction.

The worst book ever. Like who writes like this. Clearly there’s a “mammie” figure who says lawdy and yes’em and just happens to know Gullah Voodoo. Literally no plot, just reading about a menopausal woman’s sex life. Obviously the author wishes she was the character. No middle aged woman is having that much sex with that many people while living in the middle of no where. I can’t stand the main character. Her internal monologue should never be heard by anyone. It’s backwards. She talks about a 10 year old girl as being fat and homely. Example: “Chloe asked for another piece of pie and I wanted to say ‘the last thing you need is another piece of pie Missy’” This is not a direct quote it’s an interpretation Don’t waste your time
