Her Daughter's Mother
by Daniela Petrova
Praise For This Book:
"Franks' fanciful and frothy slice of Lowcountry life is a feel-good, read-in-one-sitting escape. Benton has been delighting readers with tales of her native Sullivan's Island, South Carolina, for 20 years, and her newest will rally fans and all seeking diverting women's fiction." - Booklist

Praise for Dorothea Benton Frank: "Dottie Frank's books have the fizz of a gin and tonic, the hilarity of a night out at a comedy club and the warmth of a South Carolina sun. Dip in, dive in, but no matter how you go, you'll love her." - Adriana Trigiani, New York Times bestselling author of Big Stone Gap and The Shoemaker's Wife
