In When the Cypress Whispers Daphne lost the love of her life Alex in a tragic accident. It’s been years, and she and her daughter Evie have since moved on. Daphne will soon marry Stephen, who is wealthy and has helped Daphne create her dream of owning a successful restaurant in NYC. When Daphne takes Evie to the Greek isle of Erikousa before the wedding (which will be on the island later), Evie and Daphne fall back in love with this amazing place.
At the same time, Daphne finds out that her grandmother, Yia-yia, is hiding a secret. An amazing secret that makes Daphne question herself and the life she has made.
I really really wanted more of the historical fiction part of the book. It was such a tiny piece, and I think that with more of that historical fiction, which was on the island during WWII, the book would have been a great read. It felt too glossed over for me, and left me wanting more, but not in the best way.
For me, the book was a little too light, too much of a predictable story.
Who is this book for? Someone who enjoys lighter women’s fiction with a touch of unknown history thrown in.
Have you ever been to Greece?

When the Cypress Whispers is so expertly told that I could actually see the story come to life as I read it. When the Cypress Whispers doesn’t end like a fairy tale, instead it reminded me more of a Greek tragedy. Don’t expect it to be your typical happy ever after story.
I received a copy of this book for my honest review.
Daphne and her daughter Evie fly to the Greek island of Eriskousa in the northern Greek island chain in the Ionian Sea. The wedding is planned to take place in her parents' home town there. She flies ahead of her groom-to-bee, Stephen. The best dialogue, and the strongest protagonist, is Daphne's grandmother Yia-Yia, who reacquaints Daphne and Evi with some Greek heritage. It is through Yia-Yia that Daphne discovers her true self and learns about her emotional needs. The two women have a strong love for each other. Stephen doesn't play much of a roll in this story until the second half, and the end is predictable.
This is a light read, enjoyable summer chick lit with descriptive scenes of Greek scenery, Greek culture and Greek history. The reader learns about half-way through the read that the end won't be what was expected at first. The author does a nice job weaving history, mythology and culture into this story, although the plot is predictable and cliche. Love of family and love of one's heritage are strong themes in this book.
