Before we went on vacation I discovered Dorothea Benton Frank's books at the library. My family moved to South Carolina when I was twelve and I grew to love the Charleston area (the Lowcountry) when my cousin lived there for awhile. Ms. Frank grew up in the Lowcountry and that is where her books take place.
Isle of Palms of is set on the Isle of Palms (go figure!) and is a story about finding yourself. The main character, Anna, lived on the Isle of Palms until her Grandmother made them move to Charleston after her mother's death. Anna spent the rest of her life longing for the Isle of Palms. So she finds a way to move back disrupting what had been her normal for a long time. Thus starts an intriguing and interesting tale about what is important in life and what really matters.
