“Dottie Frank’s books are sexy and hilarious. She has staked out the lowcountry of South Carolina as her personal literary property.”
—Pat Conroy, author of The Prince of Tides and South of Broad

The incomparable Dorothea Benton Frank is back with her latest Lowcountry Novel, Folly Beach. As she has with Lowcountry Summer, Return to Sullivans Island, Land of Mango Sunsets, and so many other delightful literal excursions to this magical Southern locale, the perennial New York Times bestselling author enchants readers with a heart-warming tale of loss, acceptance, family, and love—as a woman returns to the past to find her  future. Folly Beach is a constant delight from “a masterful storyteller” (Booklist) who has already secured her place alongside Anne Rivers Siddons, Sue Monk Kidd, Rebecca Wells, Barbara Delinsky and other contemporary queens of bestselling women’s fiction.

New York Timesbestselling author Dorothea Benton Frank was born and raised on Sullivans Island, South Carolina. She resides in the New York area with her husband.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Folly Beach A great read! Ms. Frank sweeps you into life in South Carolina's Lowcountry so vividly that you swear you can feel the beach sand between your toes, see the palmetto fronds swaying in the breeze from the Atlantic Ocean and hear the waves lapping the shore. I highly recommend Folly Beach.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Folly Beach A new facet to Ms. Benton Frank's writing skill's. While her previous book, "Bulls Island" was different than her former writing,this one had the 30's touch, great characters and turned out to be one of her best. I hope she finds something "low country " to once again capture our fancy. I can't believe we haven't all sold up and moved there ourselves!

Editorial Reviews

Alternating between Cate’s personal journey of renewal and flashbacks into the lives of the Heywards, Frank’s lush and literary paean to her beloved Lowcountry provides a romantic glimpse into an artistic past.
