A “miraculous” (Newsweek) human drama, based on a true story, from the renowned author of The Prince of Tides and The Great Santini The island is nearly deserted, haunting, beautiful. Across a slip of ocean lies South Carolina. But for the handful of families on Yamacraw Island, America is a world away. For years the people here lived proudly from the sea, but now its waters are not safe. Waste from industry threatens their very existence unless, somehow, they can learn a new way. But they will learn nothing without someone to teach them, and their school has no teacher—until one man gives a year of his life to the island and its people. Praise for The Water Is Wide “Miraculous . . . an experience of joy.”—Newsweek “A powerfully moving book . . . You will laugh, you will weep, you will be proud and you will rail . . . and you will learn to love the man.”—Charleston News and Courier “A hell of a good story.”—The New York Times “Few novelists write as well, and none as beautifully.”—Lexington Herald-Leader “[Pat] Conroy cuts through his experiences with a sharp edge of irony. . . . He brings emotion, writing talent and anger to his story.”—Baltimore Sun

Beautiful Fidelis McCauley instantly falls for handsome Lieutenant Daniel Herrick when he rescues her hat from blowing away during the triumphant celebrations marking the return of his ship. Fidelis is determined to escape her treadmill existence and her chance meeting with Daniel seems to open new doors for her. But loving Daniel is risky - his father, a marine colonel, will disown his son if he finds out about his secret affair with a servant girl. And will Daniel, who has grown accustomed to his privileged background, be willing give up everything for the one he loves?

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The superintendent is the remote deity of the southern school system. He hires and fires, manipulates the board of education, and maintains the status quo. #2 Yamacraw is an island off the South Carolina mainland not far from Savannah, Georgia. It is populated with black people who depend on the sea and their small farms for a living. Several white families live on the island in a paternalistic but symbiotic relationship with their neighbors. #3 The parable of Yamacraw is a story of how the black people of an island supported themselves well, worked hard, and lived up to the sacred tenets of the Protestant ethic. Then a villain came and contaminated the creeks, which led to the oysters dying and the people dying with them. #4 I was a nomad growing up, moving constantly with my military father. I loved the smooth-watered fifties, when I worried about the top-ten tunes and the homecoming queen.
