New York Times Bestseller: The “miraculous” memoir of an inspiring teacher and the students who changed his life on an impoverished South Carolina island (Newsweek). Though the children of Yamacraw Island live less than two miles from the southern mainland, they can’t name the US president or the ocean that surrounds them. Most can’t read or write. Many of the students are the descendants of slaves, handicapped by poverty and isolation. When Pat Conroy arrives, an eager young teacher at the height of the civil rights movement, he finds a community still bound by the bitter effects of racism, but he is determined to broaden its members’ horizons and give them a voice. In this poignant memoir, which Newsweek called “an experience of joy,” the New York Times–bestselling author of The Prince of Tides plumbs his experiences as a young teacher on an isolated South Carolina island to reveal the shocking inequalities of the American education system.

The Water Is Wide is a combination of parts: part emigration history, part family history, part cultural history, part memoir, part reflection, and part meditation consisting of poems, lyrics, and a prose poem, mostly on the topics of loss and separation, remembrance and memory, movement and displacement, identity and heritage all written from a Celtic perspective.
Set in Edwardian Portsmouth, this is the enchanting story of a girl who has to choose between an exciting secret love and the boy everyone thinks she will marry. 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? Meanwhile Fidelis has already promised her hand to a childhood friend Harry, drifting into the engagement to please his family whose house was a second home while she was growing up. But Harry is far away in India with the Royal Marines.
