This powerful and breathtaking novel is the story of four
cadets who have become blood brothers. Together they will encounter the hell of
the rabid, raunchy, and dangerously secretive atmosphere of an arrogant and
proud military institute. They will experience the violence, the passion, the
rage, the friendship, the loyalty, the betrayal. Together, they will brace themselves
for the brutal transition to manhood—and one will not survive.
With all the dramatic brilliance he brought to The Great Santini, Pat Conroy sweeps you
into the turbulent world of these four friends—and draws you deep into the
heart of his rebellious hero, Will McLean. An outsider forging his personal
code of honor, he falls in love with a whimsical beauty—and undergoes a
transition more remarkable then he ever imagined possible. Download and start listening now!
