  • So, so...

    By Jetb5758
    The book was confusing at first, since in Plantation, Caroline was deeply in love with Jack. Now, no mention at all of the handsome doctor. Caroline has turned into a difficult character to like - sleeping with just about anyone who seems remotely available. A timeline issue that an editor should have caught - it's been ten years since the end of the last book, yet little Chloe, who was born by the end of Plantation, is said to be seven years old and in second grade. All in all, this is that rare book from Dorothea Benton Frank that is a disappointment.
  • Lowcountry Summer

    By Boswellcat
    What a disappointment ! The main character goes on about dignity and manners and then proceeds to sleep around while she judges others as being crass. She also likes to imagine how her family killed those dirty yanks during the civil war... Yes obviously because she lives on a plantation... I won't be buying any more of these books. it portrays all of the south's ugliness and none of the kind people's charm.
  • Lowcountry Summer

    By The Pilot's Daughter
    Having lived for three years on the coast of southern Georgia, this book brought back so many flavors and pictures of this magical place. Southern women don't mince words as those of us on the receiving end well know. It's just softened so that it takes one a few moments to realize what had been said wasn't so sweet. Though the granddaughter was seen as "ugly" it was a true to life thought. It was not something ever said aloud, nor was the child treated in an "ugly" manner. I could hear those southern accents as I read and "see" the mannerisms of each of these strong women. I read this one before "Plantation" and wish I hadn't. A good read that showed emotional growth in the characters that life and its messiness hopefully evokes.

  • Lowcountry Summer

    Fun, light read. Frank's love of the lowcountry is obvious in her perfect descriptions.
  • Lowcountry Summer

    By Spyderann
    I was very disappointed in this book. It had none of the wit and charm of her first books. The main character was crude and constantly making sexual comments or moves towards any man that was still breathing. Also I found her remarks about the little girl being ugly just plain mean. She found all sorts of creative ways to call the girl ugly...not funny just mean. I really liked her first books Shem Creek and others. But I wish I had never spent the money on Lowcountry Summer. Also it was depressing. A major storyline had to do with a death and funeral. Not a good read.
