Born and raised in idyllic Sullivan's Island, Susan Hayes navigated through her turbulent childhood with humor, spunk, and characteristic Southern sass. But years later, she is a conflicted woman with an unfaithful husband, a sometimes resentful teenage daughter, and a heart that aches with painful, poignant memories. And as Susan faces her uncertain future, she realizes that she must go back to her past. To the beachfront house where her sister welcomes her with open arms. To a place haunted by long-held secrets and devastating betrayals. To the only place she can truly call home. Download and start listening now!

    " Dorothea Frank took me on a tour of 20th century Sullivan's Island and Charleston as well and I so enjoyed the visit! Born and raised on the Island, and gifted with the art of writing beautifully, no one else could do it better! She was home as she wrote this story and so, also is the reader, settled in a comfy chase lounge on that huge beachfront porch reading about the low-country and the main character's return to her dysfunctional childhood in order to come to grips with the difficult circumstances of the present. "

    " Sorry ladies, I liked this book well enough, but didn't think it was anything special. I sympathised with Susan's plight, enjoyed her revenge and growth and was left with a sense of place, but still something was lacking for me. The fairy-tale ending I could live with, but the eventual discovery of who had been responsible for the death of her father felt like an anti-climax and I think I found the whole thing somewhat over-sentimental, albeit in a girl-power/sisters-rule sort of way. "

    " I truly loved this book! Sullivan's Island, NC, is a place where a family lived and endured both wonderfully happy and equally hurtful times...and where Susan Hayes returns to face the wreckage of her marriage, life with her teen-aged daughter, and the memories from the past. This is a well-written and poignant story made even more enjoyable by the author's talent for description, for developing likable and real characters, and for interjecting humor into the story. "

    " Dorthea Benton Frank writes a lot about Charleston and the areas surrounding. Great beach reads, lots of fun! "
