Publisher Description

New York Times bestseller: A “powerful” Southern drama about the destructive repercussions of keeping an unspeakable family secret (The Atlanta Journal).

Tom Wingo has lost his job, and is on the verge of losing his marriage, when he learns that his twin sister, Savannah, has attempted suicide again. At the behest of Savannah’s psychiatrist, Dr. Susan Lowenstein, Tom reluctantly leaves his home in South Carolina to travel to New York City and aid in his sister’s therapy.
 
As Tom’s relationship with Susan deepens, he reveals to her the turbulent history of the Wingo family, and exposes the truth behind the fateful day that changed their lives forever.
 
Drawing richly from the author’s own troubled upbringing, The Prince of Tides is a sweeping, powerful novel of unlocking the past to overcome the darkest of personal demons—it’s Pat Conroy at his very best.

Jeremy Trueman ,

Top 5 favorites.

Truly a magical book. I love the way he writes.

Kash it ,

One of Conroy’s best

Characteristic Conroy writing...lyrical and sweeping. His writing style is is not for everyone except the poetically inclined. :)

The characters are real and sometimes haunting. Most people can relate to at least one of them if not more.

The final chapters drags on just a tad bit. But the ending is beautiful.

Perky too ,

The Prince of Tides

My favorite Conroy novel....in fact one of my favorite books ever. Characters are all very real....funny and heartbreaking. After you read this, rent the movie. Also one of my favorite films.
