The Lowcountry comes back to life with this brand-new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Shem Creek.

When Becca Sims wanders into the beautiful seaside Gallery Valentine hoping to sell some of her watercolors, she has no idea her life is about to be transformed by the gallery's owner and his best friend. With the vivid, unforgettable characters, dreamy Lowcountry setting, and authentically brazen, compulsively readable Southern voice that have made her one of today's greatest storytellers, Dorothea Benton Frank delivers her most extraordinary novel yet.

A sweet but simplistic story about a group of people who find a new lease on life in the low country Pawley's Island. Unfortunately the author chose to narrate this book herself, without much dramatic distinction among the characters. She should have paid an actress. Because many of the characters spoke in the first person, it was confusing as to which person was speaking. Not much attribution that would have helped, such as "Abigail said...Rebecca answered...Olivia replied..." Also, there were a number of editing oversights--"between you and I"; "...asked you and I"--plus an abundance of cliches such as "cute as a bug," "hot as a pistol"--Predictable story line and stereotyped characters.
