9780062378446: The Hurricane Sisters Low Price CD: A Novel

Once again Dorothea Benton Frank takes us deep into the heart of her magical South Carolina Lowcountry on a tumultuous journey filled with longings, disappointments, and, finally, a road toward happiness that is hard earned. There we meet three generations of women buried in secrets. The determined matriarch, Maisie Pringle, at eighty, is a force to be reckoned with because she will have the final word on everything, especially when she's dead wrong. Her daughter, Liz, is caught up in the classic maelstrom of being middle-aged and in an emotionally demanding career that will eventually open all their eyes to a terrible truth. And Liz's beautiful twenty-something daughter, Ashley, whose dreamy ambitions of her unlikely future keeps them all at odds.

The Lowcountry has endured its share of war and bloodshed like the rest of the South, but this storm season we watch Maisie, Liz, and Ashley deal with challenges that demand they face the truth about themselves. After a terrible confrontation they are forced to rise to forgiveness, but can they establish a new order for the future of them all? This is the often hilarious, sometimes sobering, but always entertaining story of how these unforgettable women became The Hurricane Sisters.

About the Author:

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

From Booklist:

In Frank’s fourteenth South Carolina novel (Porch Lights, 2012), prominent, conservative Charlestonians Liz and Clayton Waters are none too happy with their family. Never mind the constant antics of Liz’s octogenarian mother, Maisie, and her boy-toy, live-in companion, Skipper. Their exuberant daughter, Ashley, refuses to pursue either a meaningful career or a potential husband, harboring instead dreams of being a celebrated artist. Meanwhile, their son, Ivy (for Clayton Waters IV), is a hip, San Francisco men’s clothier, along with James, his Asian business- and life-partner. ’Nuff said. Each hypercritical parent manages to cope in his or her own way: Liz, by running a battered-women’s shelter; Clayton, by running off to Manhattan and having an illicit affair. But when Skipper suffers a stroke and Ashley is brutally attacked by a seemingly merely smarmy state senator, Liz and Clayton rally to their sides and rediscover the strength and solace only a strong family can provide. Hidden beneath Frank’s trademark buoyant and breezy Low Country patois is a passionate exposť of South Carolina’s alarming problem with domestic abuse. --Carol Haggas
