I like the setting of the story. I am from SC and know first hand the magic and beauty of the low country, Charleston/Sullivan's Island area. The author is witty and talented but the characters are flat and dull. I just didn't ever care what happened to them. They seem unreal and the drama in their lives seems somewhat histrionic like they make a bigger deal out of stuff than it really is and that really bothers me. Pat Conroy's review says the book has the funniest sex scene he's ever read and I do agree with that! It is hilarious! but overall I am not a fan of the book.

While reading this book I could almost smell the salt air and feel the hot sand under my feet. A fun read with interesting family relationships.

A well written tale full of low-country Gechee grit. Kept my interest through to the end. Better than Plantation, just as good as Isle of Palms

An excellent story..took me awhile to get into it, but then the story picked up and really got interesting. It's a series of flashback to 1963 and then back to present day...very well done!

One of my absolute favorite books of hers!! I really had a hard time putting it down. I have read others by Franks but for some reason this one, so far, is the one for me.
