Dorthea Benton Frank takes us to the Low Country once of South Carolina again for this engaging tale of two families who vacation on the same beach for some twenty years. The story examines family, marriage, love and friendships, as Adam finds former girlfriend Eve renting a home next to his and his wife Eliza’s home. Eve is gorgeous and has an extremely handsome husband named Carl. Are hearts stirred remembering old romances? As friendships increase, are Eve and Carl finding a mutual attraction? Summer after summer the two couples reunite at the beach. Their children grow up, and other family members come along. The characters are rich, and you will laugh, and get irritated along with them. Frank always takes me back to sand and sun in her stories. She is one of my favorites. Enjoy!
