With characteristic humor and a full cast of eccentric and wonderfully lovable characters, Dorothea Benton Frank delivers a refreshingly honest and funny novel about an artist who suddenly enters the complacent lives of several Lowcountry locals – and turns them upside down. It’s a twist-filled tale of friendship, family, and finding happiness by becoming who you are meant to be.
