About Isle of Palms:

Anna Lutz Abbot thinks she has her independence, and therefore her happiness, intact. She is a capable woman, a sensible woman, not someone given to risky living.

This all seems to be true enough until her lovely daughter returns from college for the summer a very different person, her wild and wonderful ex-husband arrives, and her flamboyant new best friend takes up with her daddy, turning a hot summer into a steaming one—only to be cranked up another ten degrees by Anna's own fling with Arthur, who is, heaven help us, a Yankee. All the action unfolds under the watchful eyes of Miss Mavis and Miss Angel, her next-door neighbors of a certain age, who have plenty to say about Anna's past, present, and future

Synopsis:

Frank's latest "New York Times" bestselling Lowcountry tale follows Anna Abbot, who returns to the idyllic place of her sweetest childhood memories. Now, she must find a way to deal with the secrets of her unpredictable past and confront the bittersweet parts of her past.

Synopsis:

Three "New York Times" bestselling Lowcountry tales of family, friendship, and love are packaged together in this deluxe boxed set. Includes "Sullivan's Island, Plantation," and "Isle of Palms." Original.

Synopsis:

The New York Times bestseller—in paperback for the first time!

Set in the steamy, stormy landscape of South Carolina, Sullivan's Island tells the unforgettable story of one woman's courageous journey toward truth.

Born and raised on idyllic Sullivan's Island, Susan Hayes navigated through her turbulent childhood with humor, spunk, and characteristic Southern sass. But years later, she is a conflicted woman with an unfaithful husband, a sometimes resentful teenage daughter, and a heart that aches with painful, poignant memories. And as Susan faces her uncertain future, she realizes that she must go back to her past. To the beachfront house where her sister welcomes her with open arms. To the only place she can truly call home.

Synopsis:

Anna Lutz Abbot considers herself independent and happy, until one steamy summer when she must find a way to deal with the secrets of her unpredictable family-and her past.
