I loved South of Broad. I love all of your books, but this one was so long in coming that I cherished it. I eagerly await the next book from both you and Cassandra King. And I love your crab cake recipe!!

South of Broad is another delicious example of Mr. Conroy's wonderful talent. I laughed and cried to the end. Thank you!

I have read all Mr. Conroy's books (except The Boo) and have enjoyed them very much. I just finished South of Broad and loved it. The descriptions of conditions in San Fransisco will haunt me. Thank you Mr. Conroy--I didn't think another book could touch my heart the way Beach Music did--but South of Broad will stay with me for a long time.

I was visiting a Barnes & Noble and a gentleman picked up the very last copy of the book in the store. Then he made a stupid decision: he returned the book to the display table. That is when I picked it up and I am go glad I did. I have not read any of Mr. Conroy's other books, but this one really touched me. Chapter 15 "The Tenderloin" is perhaps the novel's most moving. That chapter is the first but not the last one that brought tears to my eyes. So do yourself a favor and pick up this book and read it. Just be sure that you catch the tears before they hit the page.

Curses! I have not finished South Of Broad! However, I was enjoying glancing through the comments here until someone posted major details about the end of the book! Readers beware of spoilers!!!!

Read Faulkner for years for pleasure, then I discovered you. Loved The Boo, I knew and served with lots of Santinis (no offense) I know the Water is Wide (I teach school at a Juvenile Correctional Facility) the Lords Of Discipline reminded me of VMI; Beach Music and Prince of Tides made me Cry (Lots of Times)...I admire your Prose and Characters so much...Wish I could paint a picture with words the way you do.

Thank you for another wonderful book. I bought two copies, one for me to share and another for one of my sons who lives on 'Ashley Ave, in Charleston. He is an interloper from WNY via Atlanta. We met years ago at the GA Authors Luncheon. Not an author, just an avid reader who wanted to see the new Ritz, get a lunch for $8 and hear you speak. Your writing speaks to me and makes me want to share stories of characters I knew so you could make them stars. One promise I ask of you. Please don't let Barbra Streisand anywhere near this book. Sister Mary Donata of the Sisters of Mercy and I forgive you for the I instead of me on page three. Small potatoes. Too old to wait for your next book.

In September 2003 my husband and I made our first trip to the Carolina's, specifically to see Beaufort, SC because of my love of all things "Conroy". Upon our arrival it was as if I had stepped into one of your novels; the sights and smells. Craig (my husband) thought I was crazy when we were having dinner on Bay Street and my eyes filled with tears, the experience was everything I had read...down to the turtles hatching on Hunting Island beach...and the southern gentleman who laughed his head off as we stumbled through his campsight lost in the dark! We are traveling from NORTHERN NEVADA to meet you and have our books signed...your writing is a gift to us all!

Just finished your new book and absolutely loved it. Your characters are wonderful. I did find an error in that you mention porpoises in several places and I think you should have said Dolphins. Having lived in the lowcountry many years I can honestly say I have never seen a porpoise in the waters. Thank you forgiving us a fantastic new book that makes my heart yearn for the Lowcountry.

Thank you so much for finally writing a new book. Whatever took you so long? Your books are so real after I finish one it takes me weeks to realize I'm not living with the characters. You reach into their souls to make them real and you are one of my very favorite authors. Beach music was so good I wore it out reading and had to buy a new copy. Until South of Broad I had never heard of catching a bass in brackish water on a shrimp, but my boys say it's possible. Also that Boll Weevil statue is in Dothan, AL not Enterprise. I know this because my brother lives in Enterprise and I bet you hear from Dothanites! Please don't wait so long to write another. You have a special God-given talent.
