Another Pat Conroy Gem!

South of Broad was a wonderful read - January choice for our book club. I have always loved Pat Conroy's books and South of Broad proved to be as good if not better than his others. Each chapter has you turning the page to the next to see what happens to the group of friends in this book and once you get to the last page - you'd like it to continue on - but then the book would be way over 500 pages! That seemed intimidating to several in our club but the book flows so well it's not long before you have enjoyed his newest tale of South Carolina!

Great book

I loved this book. It is the first of his that I have read, but as a result of this book I have bought 3 others. I am from Charleston, South Carolina. This book really hit home with me as I grew up in Charleston during the time most of this book took place.
