Few writers capture the complexities, pain, and joy of relationships - between friends, family members, husbands and wives, or lovers - as beloved New York Times best-selling author Dorothea Benton Frank. In this charming, evocative, soul-touching novel, she once again takes us deep into the heart of the magical Lowcountry, where three amazing middle-aged women are bonded by another amazing woman's death.
Through their shared loss, they forge a deep friendship, asking critical questions. Who was their friend, and what did her life mean? Are they living the lives they imagined for themselves? Will they ever be able to afford to retire? How will they maximize their happiness? Security? Health? And ultimately their own legacies?
A plan is conceived and unfurls with each turn of the tide during one sweltering summer on the Isle of Palms. Without ever fully realizing how close they were to the edge, they finally triumph amid laughter and maybe even newfound love.

Sometimes a book finds you at just the right time; this was that book for me. DBF transported me to a lovely town with heart-warming characters who I enjoyed following their journey through the ups and downs of life. While I loved this book, reading too many books like this will ruin the feeling. Novels like this are meant to be enjoyed like truffles, only one or two every now and then. Too many too often and the decadent richness turns sour.

Tried to like it.
I really wanted to like it as this author was recommended to me by a friend. I had to make myself finish it. I thought I could relate as the ladies were approximately my age. What I found was a group of judgemental, self-righteous gold diggers. Not the strong independent southern belles we hear so much about. I just couldn't like any of the characters and had predicted the end by the third chapter. Just wasn't for me.
