I've loved Dorothea Benton Frank's books since her first one, "Sullivan's Island," came out, and I've always awaited the arrival of her next book. Her books are easy, happy reads that are enjoyable. However, by this book (what, her 5th book?) my interest is starting to wane. They all seem to follow the same formula - woman (sometimes has a child, sometimes not) is unhappy with her life in either NYC or NJ; woman goes back to the Carolina's island on which she grew up (often begrudgingly); woman "unexpectedly" finds herself happy and where she belongs; she lives happily ever after. I still have 2 books of hers that I have purchased but haven't yet read, and I will probably read them. However, if one of them doesn't break the chain of predictablility, I will probably stop there.
