Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy
The Prince of Tides marks author Pat Conroy's fourth novel and his second exploration of a southern family withstanding the abuse of an overbearing and violent father. Like Bull Meecham of The Great Santini, Henry Wingo is a tyrant of a man, prone to physically and mentally abusing his wife and children. The story revolves around youngest son Tom, who flees a failing marriage to come to Manhattan in the wake of his twin sister Savannah's second suicide attempt. Tom begrudgingly agrees to help Savannah's stunning psychiatrist Susan Lowenstein uncover the trauma that is haunting Savannah to the point that she assumes the identity of a deceased friend. As Tom digs into the family's stormy past, he highlights the ugliness of his abusive father. At the heart of the family's disintegration, however, is older brother and Vietnam vet Luke's death at the hands of authorities as he attempted to sabotage a nuclear power plant. Tom's revelations, and a burgeoning romance with Susan, lead him to rethink his life.
