All the Single Ladies Summary


All the Single Ladies - The perennial New York Times bestselling author returns with an emotionally resonant novel that illuminates the power of friendship in women’s lives, and is filled with her trademark wit, poignant and timely themes, sassy, flesh-and-blood characters, and the steamy Southern atmosphere and beauty of her beloved Carolina Lowcountry.

Few writers capture the complexities, pain, and joy of relationships—between friends, family members, husbands and wives, or lovers—as beloved New York Times bestselling author Dorothea Benton Frank. In this charming, evocative, soul-touching novel, she once again takes us deep into the heart of the magical Lowcountry where three amazing middle-aged women are bonded by another amazing woman’s death.

Through their shared loss they forge a deep friendship, asking critical questions. Who was their friend and what did her life mean? Are they living the lives they imagined for themselves? Will they ever be able to afford to retire? How will they maximize their happiness? Security? Health? And ultimately, their own legacies?

A plan is conceived and unfurls with each turn of the tide during one sweltering summer on the Isle of Palms. Without ever fully realizing how close they were to the edge, they finally triumph amid laughter and maybe even newfound love.

    I have read all your books, and loved every one of them. This one got off to a slow and simple start. However, as the characters' personalities came to life I became melded in the low country I've come to enjoy. Last year we briefly visited all the places used in writing your stories. What an adventure. Can't wait for your next book!

    Not a big fan of this one. Too predictable and tied up with a nice boring bow. But I might name my next dog pickle.

    As per usual Dorothea draws you right into her story. I never want it to end. I love South Carolina because of her tales. She always wraps up the story instead of abruptly cutting it off. I love the epilogue.

    I am a third of the way through this book and am deeply disappointed. I haven't laughed or even smiled. A lot about sex but not much about life. What were you thinking Ms Frank? Have loved your other books.

    Expected much more substance. But it is summer reading after all.
