Description:

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.
