Publisher's Summary

In this warm and moving anthology, a group of best-selling authors and writers pay tribute to legendary, larger-than-life New York Times best-selling author Dorothea Benton Frank and her literary legacy.

Inspired by the title Dorothea Benton Frank planned for her next book - Reunion Beach - these close friends and colleagues channeled their creativity, admiration, and grief into stories and poems that celebrate this remarkable woman and her abiding love for the Lowcountry of her native South Carolina - a land of beauty, history, charm, and Gullah magic she so brilliantly brought to life in her acclaimed novels. 

  • From Elin Hilderbrand, number-one New York Times best-selling author, a sequel to Summer of ’69.
  • From Adriana Trigiani, New York Times best-selling author, comes a heartwarming, humorous interview from the hereafter with Pat Conroy and Dorothea Benton Frank, two beloved icons of Southern literature.
  • From Patti Callahan, best-selling author of Becoming Mrs. Lewis and Surviving Savannah, comes The Bridemaids, a story about a trip to the South Carolina beach. 
  • From Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times best-selling author, Mother and Child Reunion, a heartwarming story set under the warm South Carolina sun. 

Reunion Beach also features letters, short stories, poems, and essays from:

  • Mary Norris, New York Times best-selling author and staff writer for The New Yorker
  • Cassandra King Conroy, best-selling and award-winning author of Tell Me A Story
  • Nathalie Dupree, James Beard Award-winning cookbook author
  • Marjory Wentworth, former Poet Laureate of South Carolina
  • Gervais Hagerty, author of In Polite Company
  • Jacqueline Bouvier Lee, Peter Frank, Victoria Peluso, and William Frank

Infused with Dorothea Benton Frank’s remarkable spirit, Reunion Beach is a literary homage and beautiful audio keepsake that keeps this dearly missed writer’s flame burning bright.

Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.

All over the place, no plot

After 7 1/2 hours I had to give up, I only made it that long because I was praying that it would get better.
Probably my least favorite book of all time.

Great Anthology in honor of Dorothea Benton Frank

Having previously read a few of D B Frank's books (and really enjoyed them), this great collection made me sad not to have known her, as there are many parallels and inspire me to read more of her books as well as the other authors, want to cook and drink some of her favs and get to know her family! I now know what to read next! I feel sure she would be pleased. My condolences for your loss. May your memories give you much comfort!
