Folly Beach by Dorthea Benton Frank...R&G!

I just finished the latest from Dorethea Benton Frank....Folly Beach.  Here is the scoop on my latest read...

Folly Beach, South Carolina, with its glistening beaches, laid-back Southern charm, and enticing Gullah tradition, is the land of Cate Cooper’s childhood, the place where all the ghosts of her past roam freely. Now, thanks to a newly deceased husband whose financial and emotional perfidy has left her homeless and broke, she’s returning to this lovely strip of coast.


Once, another woman found comfort here: an artist, writer, and sometime colleague of the revered George Gershwin. With her beloved husband, DuBose, Dorothy Heyward enjoyed the greatest moments of her life at Folly. Though the Heywards are long gone, their passion and spirit linger in every ocean breeze.


To her surprise, Cate is about to discover that you can go home again, for Folly holds the possibility of unexpected fulfillment—not just the memories of the girl she was, but the promise of the woman she’s always wanted to become. . . .

At first I found the bouncing back between the two stories (one of Cate and the other of George Gershwin) a bit hard to follow but once I got into the style I became engrossed in both stories.  I particularly enjoyed the character of Cate and who proves despite the heartache of so much betrayal there is the possibility for something much brighter.  A great read!  Pick up your copy on Amazon today..

I love to read. I would guess I read about 100 books a year. I know I read at least 2 books a week most weeks. This sounds like a great one.

If children's book count, it would be 700+. I probably read 50 adult books in a year.

I personally don't read but I enter because both my daughter and sister read ALL the time. I raised my children with books, always taking them to the library so now, they love to read. This book, being in South Carolina also, is where my sister is from. It sounds rather interesting so thanks for this giveaway

Oh my. I would think I read at least one a week, so I guess I will say 60. No, my math isn't fuzzy, there are probably some weeks I read more than one! Thank goodness for my local library!

We read hundreds and hundreds of childrens books in a year. When I only had one child I used to read probably 50 books a year. Now that I have so many little ones I don't get time to read like I used to. I'd say I probably read 12-18 adult books in a year now.

daveshir2005 said...
