When the Cypress Whispers is a great read. This is what I consider a ‘vacation book’. It’s a nice escape that you can read at the beach, on the porch or anywhere else that feels like an escape. It will take you to another place and cause you to think and reflect.
The author, Yvette Manessis Corporon, has been working in television news for over 20 years. She has travelled extensively and is currently a senior producer for EXTRA. Her parents are Greek immigrants, which, I’m sure, helped her to craft this believable fictional novel about an American woman who has a special bond to family in Greece.
It was interesting to get to know the characters and the setting of the story is beautiful. While enjoying this story, I also thought about my own family connections.
