It was impossible to remember how gorgeous the Lowcountry was. It never changed and everyone depended on that.
Newly graduated from college, Beth Hayes has worlds to conquer. But her grand ambitions are put on hold when she's elected by the family elders to house-sit the Island Gamble--ghosts and all.
But there is much about life and her family's past that Beth doesn't understand. And her plans to rest and rejuvenate--to bask in memory and the magic of white clapboards and shimmering blue waters-- begin dangerously unraveling when she falls in love.
Still, everything here happens for a reason--and disappointment, betrayal, even tragedy are more easily handled when surrounded by beloved family and loyal friends.
- Sullivans Island and the Island Gamble are very special to Dorothea Benton Frank and her characters. What does the island and their beloved home mean to the Hamilton and Hayes families? What does it mean to Beth? Do you have a special place—or a special retreat—of your own? If not, what kind of "Island Gamble" would you want? What would you call it?
