Hurricane season begins early and rumbles all summer long, well into September. Often people's lives reflect the weather and The Hurricane Sisters is just such a story.

The matriarch, Maisie Pringle, is a force to be reckoned with. Her daughter, Liz, is caught up in the classic maelstrom of middle age. And Liz's beautiful twenty-something daughter, Ashley, and her dreamy ambitions for the future keep them all at odds.

Ashley's brother, Ivy, is her fierce champion but he can't do much from San Francisco where he resides with his partner. And even Mary Beth, her dearest friend, can't talk headstrong Ashley out of a relationship with an ambitious politician.

While Ashley and Mary Beth wait for the world to deliver them from a ramen-based existence, they come up with a harebrained scheme to make money that could land them in huge trouble.

With her scintillating wit and crisp insight, Frank captures how a complex family of disparate characters and their close friends can overcome anything through the power of love and reconciliation.
