Publisher Description

New York Times bestselling author Dorothea Benton Frank evokes a lush plantation in the heart of modern-day South Carolina—where family ties and hidden truths run as deep and dark as the mighty Edisto River.

Caroline Wimbley Levine always swore she’d never go home again. But now, at her brother’s behest, she has returned to South Carolina to see about Mother—only to find that the years have not changed the Queen of Tall Pines Plantation. Miss Lavinia is as maddeningly eccentric as ever—and absolutely will not suffer the questionable advice of her children. This does not surprise Caroline. Nor does the fact that Tall Pines is still brimming with scandals and secrets, betrayals and lies. But she soon discovers that something is different this time around. It lies somewhere in the distance between her and her mother—and in her understanding of what it means to come home…

Plantation

Very interesting. Enjoyed this book.

GREAT

A tragedy has befallen me, I have just finished the last book in ms. Frank's Low Country series. They are all safely downloaded on my iPad. Now what do I do, oh wait at my age all I have to do is wait three or four months and reread them and it will seem like the first time. :-)

Seriously, she is a wonderful spinner of Low Country tales, I have fallen in love with every character.

Can't wait for the next one.......

Slow start turned to great book

I had a lot of trouble committing to this book right at the beginning. Fort, that didn’t last long, & I soon found myself with this book in my hands constantly in my hands. My only concern was the size of the font being quite small. But the storyline was so compelling. I loved it!
