Praise

“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)
 
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.”—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.”—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.”—The State

“One heck of a beach book…Frank keeps you reading compulsively.”—The Charlotte Observer
 
“Filled with lowcountry and Gullah legend, this delightful contemporary romance is a very moving story of family, love and place.”—Knoxville News-Sentinel
