New York Times bestselling author Dorothea Benton Frank returns with The Last Original Wife (release date June 11, 2013), a Carolina Lowcountry tale about a woman, Leslie Ann Greene Carter, who is the last “original” wife in her husband Wesley’s successful Atlanta social circle. When Leslie decides she has been reminded enough of this fact and decides not to keep playing the good wife, she leaves Atlanta to return to her beloved hometown of Charleston. Now that she has time to herself, she reflects on her life and tries to reclaim the carefree vivacious girl she once was. In this quest to find herself and the love she deserves, Leslie rediscovers life, love, family and true friendship.
