Few books are only available in 'with images' version.

“The setting and the characters are blazingly authentic. . . . Frank evokes the eccentric Hamilton family and their feisty Gullah housekeeper with originality and conviction; Susan herself—

smart, sarcastic, funny and endearingly flawed—makes a lively and memorable narrator. Thanks to these scrappily compelling portraits, this is a rich read.”

—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Dorothea Frank and I share the exact same literary territory. . . .

Sullivan’s Island is hilarious and wise, an up-to-the minute report on what it is like to be alive and female in the South Carolina Lowcountry today. It contains the funniest sex scene I have ever encountered.”

—Pat Conroy

“Dottie Frank’s take on the South Carolina Lowcountry is tough, tender, achingly real, and very, very funny. Sullivan’s Island roars with life.”

—Anne Rivers Siddons

“In Sullivan’s Island, southern womanhood has found a new voice, and it is outrageous, hilarious, relentless and impossible to ignore.”

—John Berendt

“A satisfying treat. . . . Dorothea Benton Frank ventures into the territory of another three-named writer, Anne Rivers Siddons.”

—Orlando Sentinel

“Frank’s wit, her fast pacing and the details of Lowcountry life and place give the novel a solid grounding. . . . The book’s greatest pleasure lies in the delightfully realized Susan, who has all the pluck, charm and gutsy good humor anyone might wish for. . . .

Sullivan’s Island is really a treat. It’s fun, fast reading. . . . a good writer with a fictional creation who—as they say in the movie biz—has legs.”

—The State (Columbia, SC)

“One heck of a beach book. . . . Frank keeps you reading compul-sively.”

—The Charlotte Observer

“Those who enjoy Pat Conroy or Anne Rivers Siddons will not be disappointed.”

—Library Journal

“A novel with such authentic characters and setting that the reader is reminded of the rich storytelling of Pat Conroy and Anne Rivers Siddons. . . . Filled with Lowcountry and Gullah legend, this delightful contemporary romance is a very moving story of family, love and place.”

—Knoxville News-Sentinel

“A novel that should be on every ‘beach reading’ list this summer.”

—The Greenville News (Greenville, SC)

“A guaranteed reading pleasure.” —News Chief (Winter Haven, FL)

“Rarely in contemporary fiction have we encountered a heroine so real, so sympathetic, so at once courageous and outrageous. . . .

Sullivan’s Island is the kind of novel readers are always asking for—

and, usually these days, can’t find.”

—Putnam County Courier (Carmel, NY) Praise for


“Effortlessly evokes the lush beauty of the South Carolina Lowcountry while exploring the complexities of family relationships . . .
