Publisher Comments:

Filled with her trademark wit, sassy, heartwarming characters, and the steamy Southern atmosphere and beauty of her beloved Carolina Lowcountry, The Hurricane Sisters is New York Times bestselling author Dorothea Benton Franks enchanting tale of the ties and lies between generations.

Beloved New York Times bestselling author Dorothea Benton Frank once again takes us deep in the heart of the magical Lowcountry—a sultry land of ancient magic, glorious sunsets, and soothing coastal breezes, where three generations of strong women wrestle with the expectations of family while struggling to understand their complicated relationships with each other.

Best friends since the first day of classes at The College of Charleston, Ashley Anne Waters and Mary Beth Smythe, now 23 years old, live in Ashleys parents beach house rent-free. Ashley is a gallery assistant who aspires to become an artist. Mary Beth, a gifted cook from Tennessee, works for a caterer while searching for a good teaching job. Though they both know what they want out of life, their parents barely support their dreams and worry for their precarious finances.

While they dont make much money, the girls do have a million-dollar view that comes with living in that fabulous house on Sullivans Island. Sipping wine on the porch and watching a blood-red sunset, Ashley and Mary Beth hit on a brilliant and lucrative idea. With a new coat of paint, the first floor would be a perfect place for soireés for paying guests. Knowing her parents would be horrified at the idea of common strangers trampling through their home, Ashley wont tell them. Besides, Clayton and Liz Waters have enough problems of their own.

A successful investment banker, Clayton is too often found in his pied-à-terre in Manhattan—which Liz is sure he uses to have an affair. And when will Ashley and her brother, Ivy, a gay man with a very wealthy and very Asian life partner—ever grow up? Then there is Maisie, Lizs mother, the family matriarch who has just turned eighty, who never lets Liz forget that shes not her perfect dead sister, Juliet.

For these Lowcountry women, an emotional hurricane is about to blow through their lives, wreaking havoc that will test them in unexpected ways, ultimately transforming the bonds they share.

Synopsis:

Hurricane season begins early and rumbles all summer long, well into September. Often people's lives reflect the weather and The Hurricane Sisters is just such a story.

The matriarch, Maisie Pringle, is a force to be reckoned with. Her daughter, Liz, is caught up in the classic maelstrom of middle age. And Liz's beautiful twenty-something daughter, Ashley, and her dreamy ambitions for the future keep them all at odds.

Ashley's brother, Ivy, is her fierce champion but he can't do much from San Francisco where he resides with his partner. And even Mary Beth, her dearest friend, can't talk headstrong Ashley out of a relationship with an ambitious politician.

While Ashley and Mary Beth wait for the world to deliver them from a ramen-based existence, they come up with a harebrained scheme to make money that could land them in huge trouble.

With her scintillating wit and crisp insight, Frank captures how a complex family of disparate characters and their close friends can overcome anything through the power of love and reconciliation.
