Dear Pat,
May I echo all the eloquent praise rendered here? As I grow older, I find a need to say "thank you" to those who have made a difference in my life. Times of pure bliss, moments of complete happiness, have been rare. I've experienced that bliss each time I've been caught up in one of your incomparable stories, and like all of your readers, I never want them to end. In South of Broad, you exhibited such a deep understanding of the human condition so many times...much less expensive and painful than therapy:) Is there anything that feels better than being understood - than knowing that someone "gets it". You have magically charmed all of us since the beginning, and let us know that we are not alone. You have my deep gratitude and prayers for improving health and long life!

There is no one else on Earth who has such a command and mastery of the English language as Pat Conroy. He could make watching grass grow or watching paint dry an emotional experience! Just the greatest author ever, and I've read almost as much as he has! Love you, Mr. Conroy!

I have been journaling since the age of eleven. I grew up on Galveston Island with my last years there spent in a Victorian one bedroom home that housed our family of eight.
My mother and stepfather, had a turbulent marriage that included infidelity, abuse, child abuse and molestation.
My only consolation was writing . . . recording my sadness and inablitity to change the life we lived.
Your words that I have read inspire me in such a way that I cannot describe . . . from The Prince of Tides I found the words, "In families there are no crimes beyond forgiveness", and have held on to them in search of an attempt at understanding.
I have been to Beaufort and felt to be drawn to your wonder . . . your way with words. At the Firehouse bookstore I hoped to meet you: perhaps one day.

I prayed South of Broad would never end. I was swept away by the characters and wanted to know them even better. Where were they on Bloomsday, 2010??? Thank you, Mr. Conroy. Now on to your other works....

As a born and bred "carolina girl" from HHI to the Palmetto area of SC I have followed your books/writing since the Water is Wide. While I have my favorites for various reasons; South of Broad is excellent in all the ways critics praise your work. Thank you for keeping the smile on my face and heart to be a Proud Carolina Girl. My dream is one day have a burger lunch at Poe's on Sullivan's with you, your talented wife Cassandra and several other southern writers! Just let me know when you both are free.

I saw the film The Great Santini when I was 10 years old, while living on a Marine Air Station. I read your book immediately after - I stole it from my Mother and kept it hidden under my bed. My childhood was very similar to The Great Santini... your writing was a great source of strength for me, however limited my understanding was at the time. I read it and reread it until it fell apart and then stole a copy from the library. I always keep a copy in my library.

As a young woman, I fell in love with Prince Of Tides, and was surprised and pleased and really, I was unsurprised my when I realized my childhood 'survival guide' was another work of yours.

Your writing gave me strength. Thank you.

Hello Mr. Conroy!

I am just finishing South of Broad, and as a Columbia native growing up in the Charleston summers, I thoroughly enjoy your poetic memories of this great Southern city. I hope to make it to Savannah for your book signing, and cannot wait to read your other books and a potential novel about Atlanta. Having lived in the booming Hotlanta for the past five years, I can give you great tips from a 20-something POV.

Be safe and healthy!
Best, Kat Reynolds

I am honored to be able to write my comments about your books. Your books sing to me in a way that no other book ever does. I love the wittiness of your characters dialogue. I love the descriptions of the various places that the characters are in... But mostly, I love how the way your books carry me along like in the rivers or marshes you love so much. Your books sing in a way that touches my sould and moves me to tears...
Thank you for writing.
