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.

Pat,
I recently finished South of Broad. I fell in love with the characters and with the description of Charleston. I cannot imagine being able to write the way that you do. Thank you for a lovely read. Oh and Nancy Jane told me not to take offense to Starla Whitehead in that she was quite crazy....lol. No offense taken. I really hope that I can see you sometime soon....would love for you to sign my books.
Thanks,
Starla

Just finished South of Broad. Loved every minute of it. Lake Lure and Chimney Rock are in my home town, so I got a huge kick out of those references. Mr. Conroy is a master story teller. I laughed and I cried which is the mark of a great book!

Was on Harbor Island last week when remnants of Ida caused high winds, rain and cold. Sat down to read South of Broad, when I looked up, 5 hours had passed. That is a mark of an excellent book.
