    Step into the powerhouse life of Bull Meecham. He's all Marine -- fighter pilot, king of the clouds, and absolute ruler of his family. Lillian is his wife -- beautiful, southern-bred, with a core of velvet steel. Without her cool head, her kids would be in real trouble. Ben is the oldest, a born athlete whose best never satisfies the big man. Ben's got to stand up, even fight back, against a father who doesn't give in -- not to his men, not to his wife, and certainly not to his son.

    Pat Conroy is without doubt America's favorite storyteller, a writer who portrays the anguished truth of the human heart and the painful secrets of families in richly lyrical prose and unforgettable narratives. Now, in Beach Music, he tells of the dark memories that haunt generations, in a story that spans South Carolina and Rome and reaches back into the unutterable terrors of the Holocaust.

    Overall

    Only a handful of books have moved me like this one. I found myself driving down the road laughing out loud, crying, and reacting as though I were right in the middle of the lives of these achingly beautiful characters. Such gorgeous writing - the way the author can turn a phrase and tell a story is of the highest measure. The narration is absolutely perfect and even though I am a Southern girl, I never for a moment doubted the accent. Simply wonderful from start to finish. Do yourself a favor and listen to this extraordinary book - it will be a reading experience you will never forget.
