Publisher Comments:

PAT CONROY, Americas preeminent storyteller, delivers a sweeping novel of lyric intensity and searing truth-the story of Jack McCall, an American expatriate in Rome, scarred by tragedy and betrayal. His desperate desire to find peace after his wifes suicide draws him into a painful, intimate search for the one haunting secret in his familys past that can heal his anguished heart.

Spanning three generations and two continents, from the contemporary ruins of the American South to the ancient ruins of Rome, from the unutterable horrors of the Holocaust to the lingering trauma of Vietnam, Beach Music sings with lifes pain and glory. It is another masterpiece in PAT CONROYS legendary list of beloved novels.

Synopsis:

Jack McCall, living in Rome with his daughter after the suicide of his wife, finds his solitude disturbed by the appearance of his sister-in-law. She begs his help in tracking down a former classmate who went underground as a Vietnam protester--and never resurfaced.
