Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop


Got this hard cover at BEA and I'm sharing the love.

When the Cypress Whispers by Yvette Manessis Corporon

On a beautiful Greek island, myths, magic, and a colorful cast of characters come together in a lushly atmospheric story about past and present, family and fate, love and dreams that poignantly captures the deep bond between an American woman and her Greek grandmother

The daughter of Greek immigrants, Daphne aspires to the American Dream, yet feels as if she's been sleepwalking through life. Caught between her family's old-world traditions and the demands of a modern career, she cannot seem to find her place.

Only her beloved grandmother on Erikousa, a magical island off the coast of Greece, knows her heart. Daphne's fondest memories are of times spent in the kitchen with Yia-yia, cooking and learning about the ancient myths. It was the thought of Yia-yia that consoled Daphne in the wake of her husband's unexpected death.

After years of struggling to raise her child and pay the bills, Daphne now has a successful restaurant, a growing reputation as a chef, and a wealthy fianc?-everything she's ever wanted. But across the ocean, Yia-yia can see through the storybook perfection of Daphne's new life- and now she is calling her back to Erikousa. She has secrets about the past to share with her granddaughter- stories from the war, of loyalty and bravery in the face of death. She also has one last lesson to teach her: that security is not love, and that her life can be filled with meaning again.

  35. I'm a pretty fast reader, so I normally read a book every day or two, so per month I'd guess around 20ish?

    ReplyDelete
  36. It really depends. If I'm lucky and get really good books, I can read 2 or more a day. Sometimes, though, I have to review books that should only take an hour or so to read, but are so boring, I have to force myself to go on, thus taking two days or so to read. So, I read 30+ books each month.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I usually read at least 10 or 15 books a month. I am usually just limited by the amount of time I have.
