Bulls Island

I am a great fan of Dorethea Benton Frank and even met her in Atlanta with my book club. Friends call her Dottie! This book was a good read, although not her best. The story of lifelong love, small town politics, family dynamics, and secrets abound. The main character moves away after a tragedy, leaving her fiance (who's baby she happens to be carrying) and his controlling mother.
The book is choppy in places and when some of the secrets are revealed ~ there is little or no drama or excitement it seems from the characters. I was a little disappointed, but will continue to faithfully read her work!!! B- If you've not read some of her others, I HIGHLY recommend them to you!!
