Summary:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “A big sweeping novel of friendship and marriage” (The Washington Post) by the celebrated author of The Prince of Tides and The Great Santini
 
Leopold Bloom King has been raised in a family shattered—and shadowed—by tragedy. Lonely and adrift, he searches for something to sustain him and finds it among a tightly knit group of outsiders. Surviving marriages happy and troubled, unrequited loves and unspoken longings, hard-won successes and devastating breakdowns, as well as Charleston, South Carolina’s dark legacy of racism and class divisions, these friends will endure until a final test forces them to face something none of them are prepared for.
 
Spanning two turbulent decades, South of Broad is Pat Conroy at his finest: a masterpiece from a great American writer whose passion for life and language knows no bounds.
 
Praise for South of Broad
 
“Vintage Pat Conroy . . . a big sweeping novel of friendship and marriage.”—The Washington Post
 
“Conroy remains a magician of the page.”—The New York Times Book Review
 
“Richly imagined . . . These characters are gallant in the grand old-fashioned sense, devoted to one another and to home. That siren song of place has never sounded so sweet.”—New Orleans Times-Picayune
 
“A lavish, no-holds-barred performance.”—The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
 
“A lovely, often thrilling story.”—The Dallas Morning News
 
“A pleasure to read . . . a must for Conroy’s fans.”—Associated Press

    I loved this book. The author is so discriptive I got immersed in the story. Every character came to life and I felt like I had known them. I love long stories with detail. Some books I just race through to get to the end. I guess they call those page turners. I want to enter each page and feel like you are right there. Only one complaint. I used to live in SF and the reporters name is pronounced Herb "Kain" not Kann. Even though it's spelled Cain. LOL If you want a good southern story with lots of twists and turns and wonderful character development, read "South of Broad".

  • Ann Passarelli

    I loved part 1, then it all fell apart for me. A lot of exposition and drama with no build up or reason, and flimsy characters

  • Anonymous

    There was so much tragedy in so many of the characters in this book, it was hard to keep track of or figure out who had the saddest story.
