very predictable romance story line...I wish I had not paid full price for this book.
I enjoyed this book. Although it is a little different than some of Dorothea Benton Frank's books and took a little bit to get into it I felt it was a good read. I would suggest reading the author's nopte in the back of the book before you start. It will give you a little insight into the connection Dorothea felt with these people she is writing about. There is real life history behind this story.
This book begins as two stories which eventually converge into one. I couldn't wait until the the purpose for this was revealed. Lots of Lowcountry flavor, a believable cast of characters give this book plenty of appeal and make it a very enjoyable read!
Very readable, in fact an easy read. Definitely knew who wrote it, Frank's style,but I thought it wasn't quite an entertaining as some of her earlier books were.
