I just finished "South of Broad" and what a pleasure it was. I couldn't get enough and was sorry it was over. This is great art and description with words. Pat Conroy is one of my favorite authors.

Just started reading your cookbook. I started in Tuscany because we loved Tuscany so much when we visited there. I didn't get past the second page of the chapter before I was in tears. Such beautiful imagery, I have the films of your novels, but if this is a typical example of your writing I'm going to read them all. I so admire your ability to paint such a beautiful picture with your words.

Mr. Conroy: It was such a pleasure and a thrill to have the opportunity to meet you at the book signing in Mt. Pleasant. I would like to reiterate my heartfelt invitation to attend our book club meeting and would make any allownces for time or venue. You are the epitome of the true southern gentleman with all the intellect, grace and humor. It is such an honor that you serve as a symbol of our state in all its foibles, failures, surprises and grace. I sincerely hope that you conquer your health concerns and remain with us in all your vitality for a long time to come. Please consider my invitation as an honest one that would give us the greatest thrill of our life. SOB was, as always, a wonderful ride and tour of the human spirit. Thanks so much for everything. Lisa

Thank you Mr. Conroy for another wonderful journey. "South of Broad" has taken me to places in my own life that have not be touched for years. If you ever read this, please know that you have helped me find the courage to visit those sites and face into those spaces that I have tried to erase.

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!
