And then there's Brad Jackson, a former investment banker of Atlanta, Georgia who hires her to run his restaurant on Shem Creek. Like everyone else, Brad's got a story of his own - namely an almost ex-wife, Loretta who is the kind of gal who gives women a bad name.
The real protagonist of this story is the Lowcountry itself. The magical waters of Shem Creek, the abundant wildlife and the astounding power of nature give this tiny corner of the planet its infallible reputation as a place for introspection, contemplation and healing.
As in all her previous work, you'll find Shem Creek to be compulsively readable, irreverent but warm and blazingly authentic - and you'll dread reaching the last page. It is her vivid writing, colorful characters and rich narrative that have made Dorothea Benton Frank one of our nation's greatest storytellers. Shem Creek is a triumphant novel that proves we are all entitled to a second chance. The challenge is to learn how to recognize it when it comes and to know which chance to take.

Loved the story and the narration. The reader can make or break an audiobook for me. Sometimes I just give up and read the real book. I thought the narration was outstanding. Each character's voice was distinct and instantly recognizable as soon as I heard it. I know different people have different tastes, but I personally thought it was extremely well done. The story captivated me from the get-go and I very much enjoyed and cared about the characters. I found the complete audiobook humorous, engaging and a true pleasure from start to finish. 2 thumbs up from me!
