(NAPSI)—A New York Times best-selling author has a new offering that’s been described as charming, evocative and soul touching. Dorothea Benton Frank’s latest novel, “All the Single Ladies” (Harper-Collins), takes readers deep into the heart of South Carolina’s Lowcountry, where three middle-aged women forge a new friendship after the death of a mutual friend.

Frank illuminates the power of friendship in women’s lives in a novel 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.

Through their shared loss, the women in the novel forge a deep friendship, asking critical questions about their late friend and the meaning of her life.

They also examine their own lives against the backdrop of health, happiness, love, security as they age and, ultimately, their own legacies.

Eventually, the women in the story triumph amid laughter and maybe even newfound love. Liane Moriarty, #1 New York Times best-selling author of “Big Little Lies” and “The Husband’s Secret,” said, “’All The Single Ladies’ is vintage Dorothea Benton Frank—a funny poignant read.”

Born and raised on Sullivan’s Island in South Carolina, Frank currently divides her time between South Carolina and New Jersey. She has appeared on NBC’s “Today” show, Parker Ladd’s “Book Talk” and many local network-affiliated television stations.

She is also a frequent speaker on creative writing and the creative process for students of all ages and in private venues such as The National Arts Club, the Junior League of New York, Friends of the Library organizations and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

In addition, Frank has been a guest speaker at the South Carolina Book Festival; Novello, North Carolina’s festival of books; and the Book & Author annual event in Charleston, S.C., sponsored by The Post and Courier.

“All The Single Ladies” is available online and where books are sold.
