    5 stars to this beautiful tribute to Pat Conroy Pat Conroy is a favorite author of mine I haven’t read all his books but each I have has been one I’ve savored He was bold and upfront about his challenging childhood and his writing was influenced by thatIf I had to pick a favorite book it would be Beach Music I bought it for my dad as a gift because he grew up on beach music and I did too thanks to him My dad is and was at the time a pretty strict western reader and within that genre has one or two authors he prefers That said he enjoyed Beach Music so much so that the copy is well worn After he read it I picked it up and I think I liked it even than he did The storytelling was like no other I was whisked away to a different time and placeConroy mentored many other authors even starting his own publishing imprint The list is endless and you can read in the synopsis just how many friends in and outside of the writing community he had Everyone who wrote about him had a different anecdote to share a different piece or side of him they saw The love for him by these individuals is palpable on the pages One could only hope to have 110th the impact on those around youPat Conroy was known for his storytelling He made it all seem natural and easy to leave pieces of your heart on pieces of paper This book is a tribute to a well loved and well respected author Our Prince of Scribes is beautifully written engaging and from the heart I’m sure Pat Conroy would approve This book would make an excellent gift for any fan of Conroy fans of southern fiction impeccable storytelling teachers and just about anyone I know I’ll treasure my copyThank you to Suzy Approved Book Tours for the invitation and to the editors for my copy of this book All opinions are my ownMy reviews can also be found on my blog wwwjennifertarheelreadercom
