Just finished South of Broad. we all waited a long time and you didn't disappoint.I loved how Leo was able to maintain his faith through it all.

I finished your book today and then went for a walk in Hyannisport where another man of great faith left us this week. His mother's mantra of To whom much is given much is expected was never fcorgotten by him.

Your new book will always be mixed in with my memories of this week on Cape Cod

The soothing sounds of the water, a strong faith and friends who love us through good and bad. What more?

Dear Mr. Conroy,

I just added this comment to my Linkedin page:

"This has got to be Pat Conroy's best; from the Water is Wide to the Great Santini and on through Beach Music and now, South of Beach, Conroy proves once again that he is a master of character development and descriptive atmosphere. In South of Beach, Conroy captures the essence of Charleston and takes us on a trip that is at once a love song and a danse macabre across the Queen City of the Low Country. For my money, only a handful of contemporary authors -- James Lee Burke comes to mind -- rise to the standards set by Conroy. A must read for anyone looking to be pulled into, and swept through, a communal journey of personal and group discovery. "

Dear Mr. Conroy,
I've just finished your new book, "South of Broad" and I found myself engrossed with your story. This is my first book I've read by you and I have to say that you write a wonderful story. I hope it rises to the top where it belongs. As a retired teacher I was impressed by your knowledge of schools and the young people who attend them. I found myself crying several times during the reading of this special story. As Vietnam Vet, who was taken prisoner and tortured there isn't much that can shock me, but when I read what those young people went through I knew it would leave an impression on me for a long time. Thank you once again for this wonderful book. I'll surely recommend it to my friends, of course they'll have to buy their own copy, I'm keeping mine.

Dear Mr. Conroy,

I can't even begin to tell you how much I enjoy your writing. I am so glad to have read in your newsletter for this month that you have plans for more in the near future.

As a former teacher, I love "The Water is Wide" and have recommended it to many first year teachers. "Beach Music" is still an all time favorite. All of your books have captured me from start to finish with laughter, tears and a desire to travel to Charleston, especially after reading "South of Broad". I would love to walk Leo's paper route as you did with your publishers/agents!

Thanks for such beautiful writing and for the joy you have given me with your work. I look forward to more!

I just finished "South of Broad". Your writing is so lyrical. I've read every book you've written and the song keeps getting more melodic with each book. I am not a weeping woman, nor am I very empathic. I have wept and hurt through this entire book. YOU sir, are a WRITER.... Thank you. Please don't wait another 14 years. I'm 78 and will have to read the next one in "another place".

God Bless your luminous gift.

I finished reading South of Broad this afternoon. I did not want it to end. I will miss Leo and his friends. Is there a possibility of a movie, I would love to see the characters in this book brought to life!

Leo King so reminds me of the kind of person that the Citadel is trying to build. Charleston is an amazing place and no matter how short or long you are there it leaves a mark. I am so happy my son survived his Knob year and can now relax and enjoy the magic that surrounds. I hope he has lots of Leo King's around him.

At anchor on the m/v Steel Magnolia. Just finished my second reading of Beach Music and knowing it'll be a while for Pat's newest novel to pass from hand to hand down to Guatemala. (sigh)

I was quite fortunate to have visited Charleston for the first time last year. It was so great to be able to connect Conroy's heartstricken writing with the actual places I'd just seen!
