Leslie Anne Greene Carter is the last original
wife among her husband Wesley’s wildly successful Atlanta social set. His
cronies have all traded in the mothers of their children they promised to love
and cherish—’til death did them part—for tanned and toned young Barbie brides.
If losing the social life and close friends
she adored wasn’t painful enough, a series of setbacks shake Les’ world and
push her to the edge. She’s had enough of playing the good wife to a husband
who thinks he’s doing her a favor keeping her around. Now, she’s going to take
some time for herself—in the familiar comforts and stunning beauty of
Charleston, her beloved hometown. In her brother’s stately historic home, she’s
going to reclaim the carefree girl who spent lazy summers sharing steamy kisses
with her first love on Sullivans Island. Daring to listen to her inner voice,
she will realize what she wants—and find the life of which she’s always dreamed.
Told in the alternating voices
of Les and Wes, The Last
Original Wife is
classic Dorothea Benton Frank—an intoxicating tale of family, friendship,
self-discovery, and love, that is as salty as a Lowcountry breeze and as
invigorating as a dip in Carolina waters on a sizzling summer day. Download and start listening now!
