South of Broad is impatiently waiting for me to get my semester as a grad student AND an 8th grade teacher under control before I can pick it up. It is my reward to myself for starting my 10th year in the classroom! I CANNOT WAIT!
Take care of yourself, Pat! I eagerly anticipate your next 3 books and FINALLY meeting you. See you @ one of your signings!

Thank you Pat for this wonderful book, eagerly awaited by my family - and so worth the wait.

I am just finishing up Chapter 2 of South of Broad and my sides are aching from laughter. Not sure whether Leo's finding out his mother is a "professional virgin" or his catching Mrs. Poe under the "infield fly rule" is funnier. This is just beautifully written. I am a year younger than Pat and can relate to so many "period" references. Can't wait to read on. This will easily top the Great Santini and My Losing Season for humor and endearment to the characters. Congratualtions for a wonderful work. Peace.

Though I was born in "up country" I consider myself, above all else, a true southern lady of Charleston and thank you for "South of Broad". I have lived, smelled, tasted and endured all the events that unfolded in this novel! What a glorius story you have told of the "Queen". My praises are too many for only 700 characters!

No other author gives us what Pat does. The heart, soul, pain and humor of family/friend relationships. Live in WNC and appreciate the references -- but love Charleston and go whenever we can. A beautiful city with a beautiful history, including the passage of Pat Conroy - a man who has met and felled his demons and embraced what was good about his life and home.

I have been anxiously awaiting the release of South of Broad. Pat's books speak to my soul. I'll never forget the first time I read Prince of Tides and realized the heart of it was the story of my family also. He captured the raw nerves I have lived with so long. The few times I've tried to tell my story people don't get it and reading Prince of Tides gave me a reference point from with to start.
Thank goodness you write these painfully, beautiful books that help to open up the real world many of us dwell in.

I just finished "South of Broad Street" - a long book but I finished it in 2 days as I couldn't put it down. I've read all your books but this one brought tears to my eyes because I recently lost one of my dear friends who was my host during a visit to Fripp Island. She was Southern to the core and introduced me to all the good things of the South. Look forward to reading your next book. Saw the interview on Writing Out Loud on the local Tulsa TV Station a year or so ago and though - "I wish I could have been there too - talking with you and Teresa"

I am so grateful to you for giving us another of your wonderful books. You are my favorite author and I have waited not to patiently for this new book. South of Broad is as good as it gets. I can't begin to tell you how much your books have meant to me. I have read them over and over; Beach Music is my favorite, but I haven't finished South of Broad. Please don't keep us waiting so long for your next book. I can't wait to go back to Charleston and look at it through Leo's eyes.

South of Broad is like a very rich dessert. I have to stop every couple of pages to digest this glorious confection. I hope you will create many more wonders such as this. All of your books have been one of a kind.

I wish I could read a book you wrote every week... I'd even read a grocery list you wrote. I also live almost in Ninety Six... great little community... thanks for mentioning it.
