One never knows what you'll find when you open your email in the morning. This morning, I was pleasantly surprised to find an email from my friends at Amazon.
Imagine how excited I was to read that my favorite author is about to publish a new book. Pat Conroy will release South of Broad next month!
Since reading Beach Music in 2002, no book has surpassed this masterpiece. Just when I thought other authors were great writers, Pat Conroy came into my life. I adore his style of writing.
Why do I love this book so much? Maybe it is because he writes about the South with such description you can immerse yourself in the midst of the novel. From Rome to the low country of South Carolina, I followed every word with such anticipation that I simply cannot put the book down. Perhaps it is because he brings us such wonderful characters that touch your heart. These are characters who must learn how to face the demons in their lives and also find solace. Pat Conroy creates page tuners.
Waiting with bated breath for August 11, 2009 to arrive, you bet I'll be first in line to acquire this new book. Ahhh...Pat Conroy, thank you for another great reading experience.
