    One thought on “The Song of the Cypress”

    1. The Song of the Cypress This novel, by Tonia Parronchi, is to put it simply, an absolutely beautiful read. There is something about it that reminds me of the evocative sensitivity of Joanne Harris’, Chocolat. It is a novel about journeys; a journey to find oneself, to connect with others and a journey to the essence of what it truly means to be a part of the world that surrounds us. Without giving too much away, Annie moves from her busy city lifestyle to a village in the Tuscan countryside th [...]

    2. It's hard to even begin to explain what I thought of "The Song of the Cypress". This novel is so unique and beautifully written that I feel inept at writing down my own views about it.Ultimately, the story is about the self-discovery of Ann (or Annie). A woman who needs to find herself as a person, spiritual soul, lover and member of a community. Until she dreams of the "Cypress" her life has been depressed. Following the needs of her mother, she has no time for herself. When her mother dies, sh [...]

    3. I’m not skilled enough as a writer to pen a review for Tonia Parronchi’s The Song of the Cypress. Her poignant word artistry crosshatches Annie and Joe’s idyllic love story in luminous, pulsing colors that splash off the page.While the Cypress sings its cadence of circular links of time and the opulence of changing seasons in the Italian landscape, Annie transforms from the shadow person created by the unrelenting demands of a demented mother into a real person, capable of loving and being [...]

    4. Ann is a woman who is only half alive, caring for a mother who has sunk into depression and illness since the death of her husband, leaving Ann to a lonely childhood and a miserable adulthood. Her mother’s death offers the chance of a fresh start and Ann dreams of the cypress on the night before her mother’s funeral.Ann travels to Tuscany, and in a small village finds the cypress. She begins her transformation, embracing her new life and her neighbours, the chatty Lucia and Pietro, Lucia’s [...]

    5. I won’t give a summary here, as other reviewers have already very efficiently done so. I really enjoyed reading this book. Tonia Parronchi’s practically flawless prose flows beautifully and is at times poetic. The story itself is a mix of fairytale romance and mystical folklore, which I haven’t come across before. I must say that the enchanted Cypress did not appeal to me much to start with, but as I progressed with the story, I understood that it added an interesting dimension to Annie’ [...]

    6. This is an enchanting and heartwarming story. The setting of Tuscany is described in wonderful detail - so much so, that I felt as if I was there. It certainly made me want to pack my bags and travel there to experience it for myself. Although I found the story exciting, I also found it very relaxing and it had a high comfort factor. It is not, as such a 'love' story, but goes much, much deeper - a story about human love, it's power and it's depth. I would certainly recommend it.Jo Cooper

    7. I could not put this book down It made me yearn to move to the Italian countryside! Tonia has a unique voice, poetic without being cloying, full of humanity and wonderful descriptions of nature. Far more evocative than "Under the Tuscan Sun", in my opinion.

    8. This is a beautiful book written with great sensitivity. I have just read it for the second time and have found even more riches within its magically woven story of love, nature and spirit. A must for anyone's reading list.
