Publisher's Summary

The rich atmosphere of South Carolina, Hilton Head, and Charleston is brought vividly to life by Dorothea Benton Frank, a South Carolina native who, with her exquisitely evocative prose, makes you smell the sea air, see the palmettos, and savor the sweet tea, but this time it comes with a side of antipasti.
Hilton Head, a South Carolina retirement heaven - at least it's supposed to be, but for Big Al and Connie Russo, the move from New Jersey to this Southern paradise has been fraught with just a few complications. Especially for their daughter, Grace.
Well, that's what she likes to be called. Her family insists on Maria Graziella. Seriously, enough with the Neapolitan. That might have been okay in New Jersey, but now it's just plain silly, and Grace, at 32, is - horror of horrors - still unmarried. No wonder her family drives her crazy. Well, that and the fact that she's living with the man she would marry if they both weren't so commitment phobic. Michael is a doctor and a scientist, and Grace is pretty sure he's also an atheist. Over the years Grace has become a bit ambivalent about her faith, but her family is as old-fashioned Italian as they come. So the stage is set for a major showdown that just might change Grace's outlook on life, family, and the New South.

Awesome Story!

If you could sum up Full of Grace in three words, what would they be?

Cancer's Miraculous Healing

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was the Priest Maria talked to about the trip which she was to take. He seemed to have the ear of God and knew what Michael needed most!

Have you listened to any of Susan Bennett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I have not.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This is a very heartwarming story. It gave me hope!

Not my favorite by Benton Frank

storyline is sad and reader's voice is not to my liking. I prefer happy stories over realistic.
