My call of action for the Three-Day Quote Challenge came from Susanne Valenti.
Make sure to check out the new blogger on the WordPress block. Thank you, Susanne.
I’m going with quotes from literary characters from novelists dear to my heart. Relatable souls. In day two I dip into the lexicon of the protagnist of the latest novel from the inimitable Pat Conroy.
South of Broad was published in 2009, a long 14 years after Beach Music, which came out nine years after The Prince of Tides. Conroy takes time to develop his stories and people, rooted in his beloved south. He’s the man who’s brought to the world the vivid tales of The Water Is Wide in 1972, The Great Santini in 1976 and The Lords of Discipline in 1980, movies of varying levels of success made of them all.
It’s been five years since Conroy put Leo King there to reunite in Charleston, S.C., with his turbulent circle of friends and family to say this: “Somehow, we managed to survive that day, but none of us ever experienced the deliverance of recovery. I realize you can walk away from anything but a wounded soul.”
Now that’s relatable to our world.
Please feel free to join this Three-Day Quote Challenge is so moved.
