Description

A big, sprawling saga of a novel (San Francisco Chronicle), this epic family drama is a masterwork by the revered author of The Great Santini. Pat Conroy s classic novel stings with honesty and resounds with drama. Spanning forty years, it s 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.
