The Prince of Tides.. This was my 2nd Pat Conroy book.. I definately did not like it as much as Beach Music but it was very good... I liked the idea of the story but not the way it was summed up at the end ..
My favorite by Kristin Hannah ""Anya's chronicle of the 900-day siege [of WWII Leningrad] imparts new gravitas to the novel...the effect, however, is all but vitiated by a manipulative and contrived ending." - Kirkus Reviews
