Publisher's Summary

Pat Controy has created a huge, brash thunderstorm of a novel, stinging with honesty and resounding with drama. Spanning 40 years, this is the story of turbulent Tom Wingo, his gifted and troubled twin sister Savannah, and their struggle to triumph over the dark and tragic legacy of the extraordinary family into which they were born.

Filled with the vanishing beauty of the South Carolina low country as well as the dusty glitter of New York City, The Prince of Tides is Pat Conroy at his very best.

©2002 Pat Conroy; (P)2009 Brilliance Audio, Inc.

What the Critics Say

"Conroy has achieved a penetrating vision of the Southern psyche in this enormous novel of power and emotion." (Library Journal)

    "Great story"

    Great book. It reminded me a lot of "to kill a mockingbird" but MUCH better.

    Story
    "FRANK MULLER IS A STAR!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES


    What does Frank Muller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The nuances he adds to the voices of the characters, his inflections, EVERYTHING about the way he read the story was wonderful. He brought the book to life!! I will look for more books that he narrates.

    "Incredible"

    One of the most entertaining and heartfelt books I've listen to this year! Narration was perfect Storyline was witty heart tugging any tear pulling. You have to be careful when listening in public places. You can double over with laughter at any time

    "Amazing!"

    I bought this on the daily deal and I'm sure glad I did! I had high doubts about it. I couldn't quit listening to it! It is by far the best book I have heard all year

    Story
    "Worth the time"

    Southern gothic, with picturesque writing, and great narration ... vaguely remembered movie as a romance, but much more than that...full of southern eccentrics, gothis tragedy, severely dysfunctional family dynamics, and the bonds between siblings who survived their childhoods together, and became damaged adults tied tightly to one another, and ultimately their parents, by their love
