Taking it sweet and slow in the Lowcountry
You’re invited to a barbecue engagement party in South Carolina’s Lowcountry, thrown by Diane English Stiftel to celebrate her son Fred’s engagement to wealthy Shelby Cambria, also an only child. On this gorgeous night, the bride's father discovers the limits of cell phone range, while Susan, the mother of the bride, learns about moonshine and dangerous liaisons.
Cut to Chicago: Nearly 1,000 miles from her familiar world, Diane attends Fred's second engagement party. If Shelby wants to marry Fred, the Cambrias will not stand in her way, even though Fred is far beneath her socially. But Diane worries she will lose her son forever.
This funny, sharp, and deeply empathetic Lowcountry tale of two worlds is classic Dorothea Benton Frank.
“Dottie Frank’s books have the fizz of a gin and tonic, the hilarity of a night out at a comedy club and the warmth of a South Carolina sun. Dip in, dive in, but no matter how you go, you'll love her.”—Adriana Trigiani
