I had the great pleasure of attending a benefit for the SC Autism Society last night and hearing Mr. Conroy speak. I can only think of one word to describe the experience ~ WOW! So many entertaining, touching and amusing stories within such a short period of time. I feel truly fortunate to have been there. Thank you also for writing a wonderful note in SOB to my parents that will definitely be their favorite Christmas gift and for posing with a photo with me. Thank you as well for taking the time to make each of us who stayed afterwards to speak to you feel truly special. Like you said ~ we were all there for a reason last night (and although I don't know what it is yet ~ I know I will).
Thank you again ~ It was an honor to attend and meet you!

I just finished "Beach Music"...the last of your fabulous books, as I had missed this one. "South of Broad" was amazing as well. All of your books have helped me in some strange way to come to grips with some of the unpleasant memories I have had with my own childhood. Thank you for sharing such poignant stories that have the magic of healing in the messages contained throughout. Please keep writing...I look forward to your next best seller!

Pat,
I just finished South of Broad. I am from Charleston and lived there during the time period in your book. As I read your description of Charleston I felt as if I had met an old friend. The book was fantastic!!! We also lived there and stayed there during Hugo and it brought back a flood of memories. The only complaint I have about the book is that I had to stop reading it while I went to work and sleep. I wanted to read it straight through!!! Thank you for bringing back a wonderful part of my life.

I just finished "South of Broad", and rarely has a novel moved me quite that much. As the story reached its ending, the floodgates opened. Thank you, Pat Conroy, for a beautiful, moving story.

I couldn't wait for the next Conroy novel. I started them reading Beach Music on vacation in the Low Country. I read others doing the same.

Thankfully, I have passed on the joy of Conroy's unparalleled writing to my 18 year old son who wrote a paper on My Losing Season and The Great Santini.

I enjoyed South of Broad so much that, when I couldn't sleep Saturday night, I spend the hours from 2-5 AM finishing this wonderful story.

While I haven't been to Charleston in 20+ years, I couldn't wait to speak to a colleague who just today returned! Pat, you made me long for my next visit.

I don't want to wait 10 more years, but if it takes that long to create a masterpiece, I may have to hold out!

I've just finished reading South of Broad and felt like I was saying good bye to an old friend. This book moved me like no other and the character of Leo touch me deeply. I was stationed in Charleston with the Navy during Hugo and remember those days very well. I wanted to complement Mr. Conway on his writing and the exceptional way he has of bringing his characters inside our souls. Leo's feelings of loss and coming to terms with his beliefs were masterful. Thanks Mr. Conroy for your prose and for allowing me to be exposed to your beautiful work.

I have been looking for a great Southern gothic novel since reading Flannery O'Connor at Salem in 1965. At last I have found it. Thank you for South of Broad. I shall reread and treasure it.

I loved this latest book. I was hesitant to finish it and leave the characters - or have them leave me. Amazing writing. I saw Leonardo de Caprio in the lead role right from the beginning; perfect for that role: Courtney Cox a possible Molly? You are a most talented writer. I was thrilled to see you had a new book out and it met all of my expectations. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. I have always been interested in visiting N. & S. Carolina - now I really want to see this area.
