“Populated with funny, likeable characters, powerful settings, and, best of all, realistic, colorful dialogue that will make the reader laugh out loud.”—Savannah Morning News
 
“She combines evocative descriptions of the place and its culture with rollicking tales of middle-aged women making a fresh start in work and love.”—The Charlotte Observer
 
“Having Shem Creek in your possession will be a great excuse to get in one more weekend at the beach.”—Winston-Salem Journal
 
“Fans no doubt will love it...few can capture an over-the-top, colorful voice better than Frank.”—Lexington Herald-Leader
 
“This delightful book embraces characters that will not soon be forgotten...You’ll enjoy your visit to Shem Creek.”—The Decatur Daily
 
“You can practically smell the homemade biscuits in this warm, evocative tale of food and family set in South Carolina’s scenic Lowcountry.”—Perform
