South of Broad

South of Broad by Pat Conroy

This book was just released in paperback a week ago and I received a free copy in the mail from Random House. Yahoo! I love receiving free books in the mail. I have never read a book by Pat Conroy so I am excited to add a new author to my ever expanding "to read" list.

South of Broad was a NY Times bestseller in hardcover. According to the back cover the book takes place in Charleston, South Carolina and spans two decades. The book begins in June of 1969, and follows a group of high school outsiders as their lives unfold amid racism, class divisions, Vietnam and love. I anticipate this will be a great book group book. Looking forward to reading this so watch for a review in the future.

As always, Happy Reading!
