Book 14
South of Broad, by Pat Conroy
I’ve always adored Pat Conroy’s epic stories that reek of personal history. I’ve devoured each one, making sure I have time to sink into the story, sink into the characters. Each one has left a mark on my heart, a character, a bit of the story, something that has stayed with me long after the last page has been turned. 
Though South of Broad deviated from his usual family stories, it still left a mark on my soul. What can I say, I’m such a sucker for a great story about friendship. Throw in some historical facts and I’m toast. 
Read this book if: You want to sink your teeth into a big novel with lots of story lines and great characters. You love authors with strong voices and stories that make you feel a full range of emotions.
Would this make a good book club books? This book is longer than your average book club read, but it offers many great themes that would make for an amazing conversation. Friendship, family, hopes and aspirations, destinies, and even life with AIDS in the 1980s. Definitely worth considering!
