Once again Dorothea Benton Frank takes us deep into the heart of her magical South Carolina Lowcountry on a tumultuous journey filled with longings, disappointments, and, finally, a road toward happiness that is hard earned. There we meet three generations of women buried in secrets. The determined matriarch, Maisie Pringle, at 80, is a force to be reckoned with because she will have the final word on everything, especially when she's dead wrong. Her daughter, Liz, is caught up in the classic maelstrom of being middle-aged and in an emotionally demanding career that will eventually open all their eyes to a terrible truth. And Liz's beautiful 20-something daughter, Ashley, whose dreamy ambitions of her unlikely future keeps them all at odds.
The Lowcountry has endured its share of war and bloodshed like the rest of the South, but this storm season we watch Maisie, Liz, and, Ashley deal with challenges that demand they face the truth about themselves. After a terrible confrontation they are forced to rise to forgiveness, but can they establish a new order for the future of them all? This is the often hilarious, sometimes sobering, but always entertaining story of how these unforgettable women became The Hurricane Sisters.

It took me to chapter 9 to figure out the characters and it didn't help I had Maisie and Liz confused however even with that I felt the story was shallow and could have been more enhanced on the story line. I almost returned it but being my first book from the author and hearing how people loved her books I wanted to plow through it.
The reviews I've read tell me this isn't her best novel and others are better. I have two in my library and I'll give it another shot. I however wouldn't recommend this as a good read. It needs more meat and potatoes in the story then it might have been worth the money,
I don't like to give poor reviews but I can't give this a better one.
A Paris Apartment or one of Nancy Thayers. I've read all but one of Elin Hildebrand whom I love but saving because I know it will be an excellent read.
Kate Rudd possibly or Veronica Roth
No not really
Disappointed thought it was going to be excellent.
Not so interesting. Predictable .
