Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pat Conroy has created a huge, brash thunderstorm  of a novel, stinging with honesty and resounding  with drama.

Spanning forty years, this is  the story of turbulent Tom Wingo, his gifted and  troubled twin sister, Savannah, and the dark and  violent past of the extraordinary family to which  they were born.

Filled with the vanishing  beauty of the South Carolina lowcountry as well as  the dusty glitter of New York City, The  Prince Of Tides is Pat Conroy's most  magnificent novel yet.

If you have seen the movie wait some time before you read the book,the movie does this book no justice, this is a compelling story of the various tests thrown our way when growing up, a fantastic read, an enticing story and a wonderful cast of characters, this book was a fantastic read, buy it for a loved one going on a trip, yourself for some indulgent "me" time or a special friend they will thank you for it belive me
