A List of Books Set in Charleston

There are so many great books set in Charleston. We’re lucky enough to live and work here – beautiful, quiet, John’s Island to be exact – and we think it’s one of the most special places in the whole world. So do lots of other people if you take into account all the “Best Of” lists we’ve landed on in the last couple of years. Charleston has a culture and a beauty all it’s own and most of us who live here feel like we’re on permanent vacation. Even if you’re exiled from the Lowcountry you can take an imaginary trip back through books set in Charleston. Just climb in your bed swing, make yourself a big glass of sweet tea and lose yourself in one of these great stories: The Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy South of Broad by Pat Conroy Beach Music by Pat Conroy The Great Santini by Pat Conroy The Lords of Discipline by Pat Conroy My Losing Season by Pat Conroy The Water is Wide by Pat Conroy Bulls Island by Dorothea Benton Frank Plantation by Dorothea Benton Frank Sullivan's Island by Dorothea Benton Franks Southern Fried Plus Six by William Price Fox Edisto: a Novel by Padgett Powell The Yemmessee: A Romance of Carolina by William Gilmore Simms Bastard Out Of Carolina by Dorothy Allison Celia Garth by Gwen Bristow Charleston by John Jakes The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd Where The River Runs by Patti Callahan Henry When The Light Breaks by Patti Callahan Henry Sweetgrass by Mary Alice Monroe The Beach House by Mary Alice Monroe Now, there are also some excellent movies filmed in Charleston. If you can see your television from your bed swing, you might want to curl up with one of these classics:
  • North and South, Love and War, Heaven & Hell: North & South, Book III - Miniseries
  • The Hunley – TV movie
  • Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls
  • The Legend of Bagger Vance
