My Magnolia Summer by Victoria Benton Frank Book Summary

“[B]y writing My Magnolia Summer, a novel of low country food, family drama, and just the right amount of romance, Victoria Benton Frank shows that she is the rightful heir to the crown of summertime storytellers. Her mother would be so proud.” — Ann Patchett 

Escape to the South Carolina Lowcountry, where family bonds and hidden secrets run deep. In this gripping tale of self-discovery, Victoria Benton Frank introduces us to Maggie, struggling to find her place in the world when she receives a phone call bringing her back to her hometown of Sullivan's Island.

In New York City winter never seems to loosen its hold and for South Carolina transplant Maggie (born Magnolia after the fairest summer flower) the balmy beach weather of April back home on Sullivan’s Island feels like a distant memory. Until a phone call from her sister, Violet, changes everything.

Gran, the treasured matriarch, has fallen into a coma after a car accident caused by Maggie’s troubled mother, Lily. But once Maggie returns, she finds that her hometown of Sullivan’s Island holds even more secrets. The Magic Lantern, the restaurant owned and run by generations of women in her family, is now rudderless, and her sister seems headed for a savage breakup.

Once she is between the marsh grasses and dunes of South Carolina, she feels herself changing like the Atlantic tides, rediscovering the roots she left behind, and a new and different version of herself—one who can see how a minor crash into the back of a very handsome farmer’s truck may become fortunate. Or perhaps it’s even… fate?

When the three generations of South Carolina women join forces—the family pillar Gran, troubled Lily, impulsive Violet, and redoubtable Maggie—anything is possible. 

With stunning descriptions of the magic of the Lowcountry, this novel will transport you to a world of treasured family traditions and unexpected twists of fate.

Highly Recommend!. Magnolia (Maggie) returns to Sullivan’s Island after her grandmother was in a car accident that left her in a medically induced coma. Magnolia works as a relief chef for a popular NYC restaurant. Magnolia has been so focused on her career to the point that she hasn’t been back to visit her family in years. When she gets the call she needs to return to Sullivan Island, will this be the push she needs to figure out her life? I loved how the author described Magnolia returning to Sullivan Island as “finding her wings”! It perfectly describes where Magnolia is in life and pushes her to reexamine her own relationship with her family. When Magnolia discovers all the problems facing her family, she decides to put her NYC life and career on hold to help her sister Violet get the family restaurant back to being successful with home-cooked meals again. In the end, will this make her happy? Will she be able to find more clarity or will her life continue to spiral out of control? This book will have you turning the pages as Magnolia discovers who she is and what is really truly important to her in life! Did you know that Victoria Benton Frank is daughter of the late Dorothea Benton Frank? My Magnolia Summer is her debut novel and it’s fantastic! A beautifully written book that will make you laugh, cry, and even shake your head at times. Even though this book highlights how complicated family and work relationships can be, it is entertaining. I really enjoyed all the cooking tips in this book as this author once was a chef! Be sure to add this book to your pool or beach bag! It will bring you hours of entertainment! A great book club pick as well as it will lead to many interesting discussions.

Delicious. Victoria has done her Mother proud with her amazing first novel! A fun story about a group of Southern women dealing with life’s challenges. As a Southern woman and a foodie, I seriously enjoyed it! Can’t wait for more Magnolia!
