Publisher's Summary

This powerful and breathtaking novel is the story of four cadets who have become bloodbrothers. Together they will encounter the hell of hazing and the rabid, raunchy, and dangerously secretive atmosphere of an arrogant and proud military institute. They will experience the violence. The passion. The rage. The friendship. The loyalty. The betrayal. Together, they will brace themselves for the brutal transition to manhood... and one will not survive.

With all the dramatic brilliance he brought to The Great Santini, Pat Conroy sweeps you into the turbulent world of these four friends - and draws you deep into the heart of his rebellious hero, Will McLean, an outsider forging his personal code of honor, who falls in love with a whimsical beauty... and who undergoes a transition more remarkable then he ever imagined possible.

    "Wordsmithing at its best"

    The late Pat Conroy was amongst the greatest wordsmiths of my lifetime. This book displayed his ability to sculpt and mold a story into ever more romantic, poetic and troubling turns.

    "Great story, Great storytelling"

    I read this book several years ago, and enjoyed it more the second time through. The performance of Dan Miller was excellent, and appropriate for the story setting. He did an excellent job of portraying each character and bringing the words to life. RIP Pat Conroy.

    "Pat Conroy at his finest"

    He wears the ring. The simplicity of that first line is so difficult to define that the words become complex and undefinable.
