For a limited time, enjoy Dorothea Benton Frank's New York Times bestseller Return to Sullivans Island at a special price and receive an exclusive from her new novel, Porch Lights, available June 12th.

In Return to Sullivans Island, newly college graduate Beth Hayes must put all her grand ambitions on hold when the family elders elect her to house-sit the Island Gamble, ghosts and all. Instead of conquering new worlds, Beth will rest and rejuvenate while basking in memory and the magic of white clapboards and shimmering blue waters. But there is much about life and her family's past that she does not yet understand—and her simple plans begin unraveling with the intrusion of developer Max Mitchell. Still, everything here happens for a reason—and disappointment, betrayal, even tragedy are more easily handled when surrounded by loving family and loyal friends.
