Description

Leslie Anne Greene Carter is The Last Original Wife among her husband Wesley's wildly successful,Atlanta social set. His cronies have all traded in the mothers of their children they promised to loveand cherish--'til death did them part--for tanned and toned young Barbie brides.

If losing the social life and close friends she adored wasn't painful enough, a series of setbacksshake Les's world and push her to the edge. She's had enough of playing the good wife to a husbandwho thinks he's doing her a favor keeping her around. Now, she's going to take some time forherself--in the familiar comforts and stunning beauty of Charleston, her beloved hometown. Inher brother's stately historic home, she's going to reclaim the carefree girl who spent lazy summerssharing steamy kisses with her first love on Sullivans Island. Daring to listen to her inner voice, shewill realize what she wants . . . and find the life of which she's always dreamed.

Told in the alternating voices of Les and Wes, The Last Original Wife is classic Dorothea BentonFrank: an intoxicating tale of family, friendship, self-discovery, and love, that is as salty as aLowcountry breeze and as invigorating as a dip in Carolina waters on a sizzling summer day.

display_description "Leslie Anne Greene Carter is the last original wife among her husband's group of cronies. They've all traded in for younger... blonder... more enhanced models. But she is proud of her status and the longevity of her marriage. Sure the spark isn't quite there the way it once was. And it would be nicer if her husband paid a bit more attention to her desires but there's something to be said for a comfortable relationship. Or at least she thinks so until one day, out golfing with her husband and his friends, she falls into a manhole. And nobody realizes that she's gone. With her eyes finally open to what her perfect life has truly become, Leslie must trust in the healing powers of South Carolina's lush beaches, beautiful sunsets, and feisty residents. The Last Original Wife is a classic tale of friendship and love dipped in the salty waters of a South Carolina summer"--
