Hidden in Plain View Thursdays

Sullivan's Island
by Dorothea Benton Frank

Welcome to the weekly feature where we use to pick a book from our library shelves (real or virtual) and bring it out into daylight.  To join in, follow the guidelines posted here.
    Be sure to leave us a link to your post so we can compare notes.
    Can you find this one?  It's not quite in plain view.

    I read this one when it came out in paperback, and have read all of her books s  If you enjoy Anne Rivers Siddons, or Pat Conroy, you'll definitely like reading Dorothea Benton Frank's delicious fiction set in the low country of South Carolina.  Sullivan's Island, the first of six  novels in the Low Country series tells a story of one woman's search for truth, after she left an unfaithful husband, and unpleasant life and returned to her childhood roots.

    I've read the first two, and I'm looking for more.


    1. Dorothea Benton Frank is one of my favorite authors. I think Plantation was one of her best, although Sullivans Island is certainly a wonderful read. I'm glad you enjoyed the book.

    2. I haven't read any of this author's work, but it does sound like a perfect vacation book.

    3. I have never heard of her, but this sounds a bit tempting.

      I must say though that these glimpses of your bookshelves make me so, so, so

    4. I've never read any of Frank's works; I usually am more of a clasics reader. Speaking of which, that's what mine is this week. :)

    5. I read SULLIVAN'S ISLAND years ago and loved it. I don't know why I haven't gotten around to reading more by this author. I think I even have one or two of her books in my TBR pile!


    Welcome, thanks for stopping by. Now that you've heard our two cents, perhaps you have a few pennies to throw into the discussion.
