RETURN TO SULLIVANS ISLAND
Genre: Mainstream, General Mainstream Fiction
Frank's sequel to Sullivans Island moves on to the next generation. Readers are immediately transported to the Low Country with vibrant description and colorful, larger-than-life characters. It's a captivating journey of the many firsts involved in leaving the teen years behind, moving into adulthood and embracing who you are.
Having just graduated from college, Beth Hayes had planned to go straight to graduate school. But she is chosen, without her consent, to spend a year back home on Sullivans Island to watch over Island Gamble, the family's ancestral home.
Resentful that she has to put her life on hold, Beth receives an education in adulthood as she experiences the highs and lows of navigating life on her own for the first time. Beth realizes she has a lot to learn about her own family, and no matter how hard she tries to put distance between them, those ties wrap themselves ever more firmly around her.
