Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Dorothea Benton Frank writes highly addictive tales of life's conundrums with hilarity and heat. Meet Miriam Elizabeth Swanson, in a full-blown snit, buoyed by a fabulous cast that runs the gamut from insufferable to wonderful. First is the arrival of Liz Harper, Miriam's tenant from Birmingham, who sets a new cycle in motion. Her other tenant, Kevin, stalwart companion with more style than Cary Grant, shakes Miriam out of her fog to see which battles are worth the fight. Then there's Miriam's estranged son, who announces he's marrying a Jamaican woman. And what about her ex-husband, Charles, and that sordid lingerie model of his? Finally, you'll laugh and cry when Miriam meets a man named Harrison who changes her into a gal named Mellie.

Miriam spins out from the revolving door of her postured life as a Manhattan quasi-socialite while she thirsts, no, starves for recognition. It takes a few spins, dips, and one spectacular fall until 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 Lowcountry of South Carolina.

Told straight from the heart in Frank's vivid, highly entertaining style, The Land of Mango Sunsets just might be her finest work to date. If you decide to read this book, don't make plans to do anything else for a while.

I' ve read all of Ms. Frank's books. I started my Frank journey with Full of Grace because it centered around an Italian family. I continued with what came after and ended up with Mango Sunsets. Harry, the parrot, is my favorite character in the novel. He is correct in saying that the main character thinks of her ex- husband. Kevin rents an apartment from Miriam and he is truly a best friend. LizHarper is another story altogether. Thank you, God, forMiriam in her life. This novel has humor, sadness, perserverance, and devotion. I like the book's jacket which depicts abandon and freedom.
   Ah, the sunset!
This is the second book I' ve read. I had forgotten how good it is. I am reading all of my favorite author's books in honor of her. It seemed like the right thing to do after finishing Reunion Beach. Even though I did not meet her, she was my friend. I like to go to Sullivan's Island whenever I pick up a book from her. How can you not be with someone you never met? I don't know, but I do. Thank you, Dorthea Frank, for sharing your story.
   Always a Joy to read
The words of wisdom and hope interwoven in a delightful story is what Benton- Frank always has. It's good to read for relaxation.
   Really like this author
I like this author and I don't think this one is that good. I didn't think this measured up to others. However I enjoyed reading it.
   Love love the low country
I love all of Ms. Frank's books, but this one was very special. It's a place that's dear to my heart. It was even more so because of the mother and daughter connection. We did everything together and I loved my mother very much. Advice never got old because of her stories. I cared for my mom until she died. I knew my mother had gone to her reward when the light left the room. Smiling and smiling, I look forward heaven. I love you. Enjoy this book. I may revisit it.
   Love all Dorothea Benton Franks books.
There will be no more. I don't know which is my favorite. It is true to the nature of the low country.
   Such a great read
I only allow myself to read Mrs. Franks' books occasionally because I am afraid of catching up and having to wait for a new one. The characters like Mellie were great. I would like to jump in my car and go to the Island.
