Tell Me a Story: My Life with Pat Conroy
Pat Conroy was a larger-than-life author and personality who left an ingrained footprint on the literary world. His relationship with his wife Cassandra King Conroy was a large part of his later life. Both authors would meet in a fateful way, nearly missing each other due to other commitments, their acquaintance made by their love of the written word. Pat Conroy made for an intimidating presence, yet his personality showed the opposite. Their first meeting would lead to a long-lasting friendship. Pat wrote a blurb for Cassandra’s first book with no qualms. Their turbulent past relationships led them to slowly develop their relationship until Pat revealed the depth of his feelings. They would each introduce the other to their respective and colorful families and marry in a private ceremony in May 1998. The couple loved each other immensely and also fueled the other’s creative output, with Pat publishing six books and Cassandra releasing five. Their time together was a true love story spanning longer than eighteen years. Tell Me A Story is a poignant view of two souls fatefully destined to meet. Cassandra King Conroy tugs at the reader’s heartstrings in stirring fashion, while providing plenty of uproariously funny moments to stifle the occasional sob. The book is near impossible to put down, every relayed memory a keepsake for the reader. A must-read dual biography for 2020!
