Summary, etc.:
Firmly ensconced back in the family home in South Carolina’s Lowcountry, Caroline Wimbley Levine’ s life would be perfect were it not for the drunken escapades of her hopefully soon-to-be-ex-sister-in-law, Frances Mae. In love with another woman and exasperated by his wife’s drinking, Caroline’s brother, Trip, has repeatedly asked Frances Mae for a divorce, which only fuels her alcohol-induced antics. When an under-the-influence accident endangers the life of their youngest child, Frances Mae is sent off to rehab rather than face jail time. Her absence gives Caroline and Trip’s girlfriend, Rusty, the opportunity to turn Trip’s pack of she-wolf daughters into young ladies—a Herculean task, considering the girls think Rusty a potential stepmother worthy of the Brothers Grimm. Unfortunately, it will take a tragedy to fully bring the lessons of grace, honor, and tradition home to this next generation of Wimbley women. Reprising the characters introduced in Plantation (2001), Frank creates a richly atmospheric tale of a loving, if dysfunctional, Southern family. -- from Booklist / Carol Haggas
