Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Dorothea Benton Frank returns to her magical Lowcountry of South Carolina in this bewitching story of marriage, love, family, and friendship that is infused with her warm and engaging earthy humor and generous heart.
One enchanted summer, two couples begin a friendship that will last more than 20 years and transform their lives.
A chance meeting on the Isle of Palms, one of Charleston's most stunning barrier islands, brings former sweethearts Adam Stanley and Eve Landers together again. Their respective spouses, Eliza and Carl, fight sparks of jealousy flaring from their imagined rekindling of old flames. As Adam and Eve get caught up on their lives, their partners strike up a deep friendship - and flirt with an unexpected attraction - of their own.
Year after year Adam, Eliza, Eve, and Carl eagerly await their reunion at Wild Dunes, a condominium complex at the island's tip end, where they grow closer with each passing day, building a friendship that will withstand financial catastrophe, family tragedy, and devastating heartbreak. The devotion and love they share will help them weather the vagaries of time and enrich their lives as circumstances change, their children grow up and leave home, and their twilight years approach.
Bursting with the intoxicating richness of Dorothea Benton Frank's beloved Lowcountry - the sultry sunshine, cool ocean breezes, icy cocktails, and starry velvet skies - Same Beach, Next Year is a dazzling celebration of the infrangible power of friendship, the enduring promise of summer, and the indelible bonds of love.

SOPHISTICATION SOUTHERN STYLE

I found this to be a step up and in the right direction in the Low Country series. The multi- ethnic flavor (in all all its meanings) was engaging and stimulating, maki g this book more than just "a light" read. it was a great read I may keep to read again.

Not her best...

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I think an older audience will appreciate this book


What was most disappointing about Dorothea Benton Frank’s story?

The author seemed out of touch with references in her story. She should not use current topics and technology references if they cannot be done correctly.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bernadette Dunne?

I'm not sure who else to cast, but the narrator did not add to this story.
