Sullivan's Island by Dorothea Benton Frank
Set in the steamy, stormy landscape of South Carolina, Sullivan's Island marks the debut of a uniquely talented storyteller. Susan Hayes navigated her turbulent childhood with humour and characteristic Southern spirit. But years later, she is a woman with an unfaithful husband, a sometimes resentful teenage daughter, and a heart that aches with painful, poignant memories. As Susan faces her uncertain future, she realizes that she must go back to her past. To the idyllic beachfront house of her childhood, a place haunted by long-held secrets and devastating betrayals. To Sullivan's Island.
