Publisher's Summary

Dorothea Benton Frank is one of America's most insightful writers, weaving highly addictive tales of the conundrums of life with hilarity and heat. Now, in the Land of Mango Sunsets, Frank gives us one woman's journey toward a hard-won truth: that life isn't always what it appears to be, and the sooner you realize that pride won't keep you warm at night, the happier you will be. Meet Miriam Elizabeth Swanson, in a full-blown snit, buoyed by a fabulous cast who run the gamut from insufferable to wonderful. Miriam spins out from the revolving door of her postured life as a Manhattan quasi-socialite while she thirsts - no, starves - for recognition. How did she become what she hates the most and what does she endure to realize it? And where are the answers? It takes a few spins, dips, and one spectacular fall before Miriam gets her head on straight. Then, in a whoosh, she's off to the enchanted and mysterious land of Sullivans Island, deep in the low country of South Carolina.
Told straight from the heart in her vivid, highly entertaining style, The Land of Mango Sunsets just might be Frank's finest work to date. If you plan to listen to this book, don't make plans to do anything else for a while.

Excellent read!

Being a Dorothea Benton Frank fan, this book did not disappoint! Great storyline around relationships with distant children, an ex-husband, her mother and friends.

Sweet Story.

I liked the story; it was entertaining. The narrator was very good, but I probably would have chosen someone else to read. Ms. Savard made the lead character sound much older than I thought she'd be.
