Of the many barrier islands that pepper the coast of South Carolina´s Lowcountry, Pawleys Island, the ´´arrogantly shabby´´ family playground for generations, might be the most mysterious and charming of them all. It is here and in the surrounding area that Dorothea Benton Frank has placed her latest Lowcountry tale, Pawleys Island. Meet Huey Valentine, the owner of Gallery Valentine, catering to interior decorators and, heaven save us, tourists. Huey resides on his family plantation on the shores of the Waccamaw River, where he cares for his mother, Miss Olivia, a wise and irresistible octogenarian. And meet Huey´s great friend Abigail Thurmond, retired attorney from Columbia, who has laid claim to her family´s home on Pawleys Island. Huey and Abigail are complacent in their fat and sassy lives until the stormy advent of the artist Rebecca Simms. Rebecca has been catapulted from her home, her marriage, and her children. She has escaped to Pawleys Island to hide herself from herself. But after Miss Olivia pries Rebecca´s secrets from her, Huey and especially Abigail are challenged to reenter life outside the dream state their idyllic geography evokes. They will see that Rebecca has her day in court, but they never expect to provoke a national forum for discussion. With characteristic humor and a full cast of eccentric and wonderfully lovable characters, Dorothea Benton Frank brings us her most honest and entertaining story to date. People have secrets they never want anyone to know. People have pasts they would prefer be left out of conversation. In Frank´s nimble hands, it all comes spilling out to be examined and reconciled. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dorothea Benton Frank.

They encounter much more than they bargained for when they become entangled with Japanese fascists on the high seas. Hunting for lost gold, rescuing survivors on a sinking ship, and being captured by pirates, mark just some of their unexpected adventures. Fact and fiction are interwoven in this exciting novel based on two historic events. The first involves gold stolen during World War II.

The author also set up his own travel company and drafted the concept for the first PACIFICA festival in Auckland, New Zealand. Publisher´s website: www.sbpra.com/RoyVaughan
