Summer reading


What would summer be without a good book. I'm caught up in the pages of Dorothea Benton Frank's "Plantation", a story that takes place in the Low Country of South Carolina.


Nothing like a good cup of coffee and a good book to read on a warm summer day.

I enjoy her as an author and have read a couple of her books. I don't think I have read this one yet, however. Hope you enjoy it.

I've just started "Return to Sullivan's Island" - her latest - a sequel to Sullivan's Island, which I just re-read ... LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this author to pieces!!! Her reads are always my summer vacation (*smile*).

I've read every one of her books. She is one of my favorites. I went to school in that part of the country, and Charleston is my favorite of all cities.

Enjoy!
