I was shocked to wake to the sad news of Dorothea Benton Frank’s untimely passing. I’ve heard she died after a short illness. I am so sorry to hear this news.
I had the pleasure of hearing Dottie speak at a literary luncheon in Naples a few years ago just after her novel, PORCH LIGHTS, was published. I love that novel and am lucky to have spoken with her about the book. She will be missed so much.
I am reposting my post of PORCH LIGHTS in memory of Dottie.
Frank’s latest novel, QUEEN BEE, was published in May and it’s on my to-read list. I will savor it.
We have copies of QUEEN BEE at Copperfish and they’re discounted 20% off. They won’t last long…
