Dorothea Benton Frank. Perfectly understandable, even though Trip was running out of beds. But Owen wanted to look at Rusty’s things and envision her there, to remember how her life was. Perfectly understandable, even though Trip was running out of beds eally. I mean, let’s be honest; sensitive, sentimental straight men are on the endangered-species list. He wanted to get to know Trip and even his young hellions he had heard so much about. The unfortunate thing about this arrangement was that Trip was not up to the job of playing the gracious host

Dorothea Benton Frank once again brings her love and passion of the LowCountry to the pages making her characters come alive. From wit, charm, drama, and local flavor-from fresh fish, dogs, dolphins, music, seagulls, seaside, laughter-and dreams, a powerful place, happiness-home at last. Not as extreme opposites as Green Acres, the American TV sitcom, starring Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor, couple who move from New York City to a country farm. However, I found myself saying, "Really? I should care about these characters because?" repeatedly during the book.

Dorothea Benton Frank is a native of the South whose novels vividly capture the wild beauty, laid-back atmosphere, earthy characters, and charming eccentricities of life in South Carolina's Lowcountry. Written with compelling honesty and emotional depth, her stories have touched readers from coast to coast, and propelled her to the top ranks of bestsellerdom nationwide.

If it wasn't for Dottie Frank, I'd never have known about the beauty and magic of South Carolina. At first readers only notice all the domesticity and manners of this southern state. But once one becomes a veteran reader of Frank's books, it becomes clear she's passing along some valuable life lessons...in a most comfy, cozy way. I like being privy to her good cookin' and good judgement about many different types of folks and their motivations. Good job Dottie, looking forward to more.

...it's not worth the 7.99 you shell out. Normally, I enjoy most DBF books. But Caroline Wimbley is simply an awful heroine. There she is, judging her nieces and sister-in-law as trash; while she sleeps around more than they do. What lends this character her meant-to-be-accepted without question, high moral ground? Nothing. The way she treats and speaks about her nieces is appalling. What adult picks on kids to make themselves feel better about their own messed-up life? Caroline Wimbley does; but readers are supposed to accept this as rational behavior because it's The South, 'eah? At least, rational behavior from a character that is painted to be entitled to their nastiness.

Honestly, take a pass on this book. I dislike heroines that aren't meant to be the anti-heroine, but still are - as long as you suspend your disbelief. There's nowhere to slot their personalities.

DBF should have known better than to revisit the least likeable character she's ever created.

Love Frank's books. Read the first low country novel and this picks up shortly after the death of its matriarch. Her daughter, the main character in this book, is moving forward but is slowly taking on some of the character traits of her mother (a good thing). The relationships between characters (boyfriends, friends and daughter) are sad at times but funny too. Her characters are certainly "full bodied" and easy to picture in your mind. A good read that makes you feel good too.

The tales just do not stop! What a great story streamed with wonderful historical information, customs and heritage!
Great characters who are richly developed and are like they are right in your living room.
While filled with so many colorful and humorous events, the subject of sobriety and teaching one's children appropriate behavior resonates throughout the book.
Another great read by Dorothea Benton Frank! What's next?!?!

Another well-conceived novel of family strife and life the Lowcountry of South Carolina. I enjoy everything Dorothea Benton Frank writes, but especially give 5 stars to her accurate representation of the beauty of this part of our great country. She always weaves a terrific story and tells the story in a meaningful and local-accurate manner.
I'm always sorry when the books ends...then, I still have not exhausted all her novels, so onward!

If you are over 50 and like easy, beach reads, this is a pleasant book to spend an afternoon reading. One must be able to identify with the issues the characters deal with to appreciate the plot line, and this is definitely the case with Lowcountry Summer. As a lover of the lowcountry, I enjoy the setting and background as much as the story. As an over 50 female reader, a grandmother, mother of adult children and sister with siblings in the baby boomer age range, I found the book light and fun and the characters issues similar to those of people in my world. While Plantation is by far her best work ever, both deep and engaging, Lowcountry Summer was a lovely sojourn back to life on the plantation, years later.

I watch the new book list in anticipation from this author. My first book was Shem Creek and I've been hooked ever since. Funny how you can actually picture her characters while you are reading her books. Some even seem like family members of your own. I have stayed up many a night until dawn because I couldn't put down the book. Lowcountry is the second book in a set that started with Plantation. You gotta read it first or you won't understand what's going on and who's who. You will never forget the cook & the sister-in-law. A must read for summer.
This is part two of a very interesting novel of family, home, and life in the low country. For me it was the second time I read it in a few years. Was it as intriging and entertaining? Absolutely. I would highly recommend anything Dorothea Benton Frank produces, but PLANTATION, LOW COUNTRY SUMMER:APLANTATION NOVEL remain at the top of my list.
