The Lowcountry comes back to life with this brand-new novel from
author of Shem Creek. When Becca Sims wanders into the
beautiful seaside Gallery Valentine hoping to sell some of her
watercolors, she has no idea her life is about to be transformed by
the gallery's owner and his best friend. With the vivid,
unforgettable characters, dreamy Lowcountry setting, and
authentically brazen, compulsively readable Southern voice that have
made her one of today's greatest storytellers, Dorothea Benton Frank
delivers her most extraordinary novel yet.
