Description

"Dottie Frank's books are sexy and hilarious. She has staked out the lowcountry of South Carolina as her personal literary property."
--Pat Conroy, author of The Prince of Tides and South of Broad

The incomparable Dorothea Benton Frank is back with her latest Lowcountry Novel, Folly Beach. As she has with Lowcountry Summer, Return to Sullivans Island, Land of Mango Sunsets, and so many other delightful literal excursions to this magical Southern locale, the perennial New York Times bestselling author enchants readers with a heart-warming tale of loss, acceptance, family, and love--as a woman returns to the past to find her future. Folly Beach is a constant delight from "a masterful storyteller" (Booklist) who has already secured her place alongside Anne Rivers Siddons, Sue Monk Kidd, Rebecca Wells, Barbara Delinsky and other contemporary queens of bestselling women's fiction.

Back cover copy

With its glistening beaches, laidback Southern charm, and enticing Gullah tradition, Folly Beach has long been one of South Carolina's most historic and romantic spots. It is the land of Cate Cooper's childhood, the place where all the ghosts of her past roam freely. Cate never thought she'd return to the beach house named for this lovely strip of coast. But circumstances have changed, thanks to her newly dead husband, whose financial--and emotional--perfidy has left Cate homeless and broke.

Yet Folly Beach holds more than just memories. Once upon a time another woman found unexpected comfort within its welcoming arms. An artist, writer, and sometime colleague of the revered George Gershwin, Dorothy Heyward enjoyed the greatest moments of her life at Folly with her beloved husband, DuBose. And though the Heywards are long gone, their passion and spirit linger in every sunset and ocean breeze.

And for Cate, Folly holds the promise of unexpected fulfillment . . . of the woman she's always wanted--and is finally ready--to become.
