Dorothea Benton Frank was born and raised on Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina and first began to delight readers with tales of life in the lowcountry with the publication of her first book, Sullivan’s Island––which now has over a million copies in print.
In the intervening years, Frank has found success as author of Plantation, Isle of Palms, Shem Creek, Pawleys Island, Full of Grace, The Land of Mango Sunsets, The Christmas Pearl, and Bulls Island. With Return to Sullivans Island, ten years and ten New York Times Bestselling novels later, fans can read the story of the next generation of Hamiltons and Hayes - and their beloved home, the Island Gamble. Dot Frank now resides in the New York area with her husband, but makes frequent visits back to the lowcountry.
