New York Times bestselling author Dorothea Benton Frank returns to the Carolina lowcountry with a soul-satisfying tale of chance, honor, and star-crossed love, infused with wit, grace, and Southern charm It has been years since Elizabeth â€śBettsâ€ť McGee has returned to her once-adored Bulls Island in the Carolina lowcountryâ€”ages since tragic fate coupled with nasty rumor ended her engagement to fabulously wealthy Charleston golden boy J. D. Langley. Having successfully reinvented herself as a top New York banking executive, Betts is now heading up the most important project of her career. But itâ€™ll transform the untouched island she loved in her youth into something unrecognizable. And itâ€™s forcing her to return to the bosom of her estranged family, where she may not be welcomed with open armsâ€”and uniting her with ex-flame J.D., whoâ€™s changed . . . but perhaps not enough.
