This week’s book recommendation is from another author that writes stories about the Lowcountry of South Carolina. It is “By Invitation Only” by Dorothea Benton Frank.
Ms. Frank has written a wonderful take of the upcoming wedding of two characters from very different family backgrounds. One set of parents is fully onboard and the other is not because of a “wealth” disparity but that is only a hint of this interesting novel. As I mentioned earlier, I love the fact that the story goes from here in the Low Country to Chicago, as we follow the characters on their journey. But then we end back in South Carolina. “By Invitation Only” was particularly interesting for me because I knew some of the places that were referred to in the book since I live here.
The storyline and characters will keep you engaged till the last page and is perfect for that first beach read of the Spring/Summer 2019 season even if the book was released last year. If you are looking for a book to get lost in, I highly recommend “By Invitation Only”.
