"Resplendent . . . As always, [Conroy's] storytelling, word choice and rhythm are gorgeous, almost lyrical; his descriptions are gloriously unexpected. . . . Fans who have missed his voice will find comfort in knowing that this is distinctively, precisely, willfully the Conroy whose books they loved."--USA Today "Elegant . . . A Lowcountry Heart is Pat's last offering--a victory lap for the legion of readers who bought his books and stood in line to get them signed. It will not disappoint."--The Washington Post "A Lowcountry Heart is a fascinating look into the mind of one of the South's greatest authors; call it a secret glimpse at the person behind the pen with all his foibles and endearing qualities laid bare by his own hand. Funny, thoughtful, breezy, profound, in this posthumous account, he and his widow give readers a great gift: himself, something to remember him by and cherish for years to come."--The Clarion-Ledger "Vibrant, charming . . . Fans of Conroy will relish the chance to spend more time with him in this glowing valedictory to his life and writing."--Publishers Weekly "A moving and proper tribute to a true Southern icon."--The Florida Times-Union
