By Jon Ryan A young girl searches for her missing father amidst a haunted manor, equipped only with her wits and a magic amulet that allows her enter the spirit realm. As I progressed through the surprisingly short story that is Whispering Willows, however, I realized that aside from some excellent audio work and cool art direction, there was little to hold my interest. Exit Theatre Mode The best idea of Whispering Willows is that our heroine Elena is able to astral-project herself into the spirit realm.
It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings. The Whispering Wind is a moving story of two lovers, set on the beautiful island of Sardinia, where Elise goes on holiday to escape a loveless and violent marriage.
Whilst there, she meets and falls in love with Beppe, a local Sard. Despite religious and cultural complications, they embark on a romantic and passionate affair.
Beppe shows Elise his island and introduces her to the welcoming culture of the Sardinians and Elise soon falls under the spell of both the island and its people. But after weeks of blissful happiness, Elise has to return unexpectedly to England to face all the problems she had been so desperate to leave behind.
The Whispering Wind is that kind of book which will bring out the deepest pain from our soul and will manage to transform that pain into something beautiful and memorable.
Since that is how I felt when I read the book. Elise, a young and married English woman, take a trip all by herself to an Italian island, Sardinia. To get away from her abusive husband, William, Elise decides to take a break from her marital issues before going for a divorce.
But her stay at Sardinia turns out to be something enchanting and fateful for her. Not only Elise was struck by the beauty of this small and lonely island, but also fell in love with the warmth of the local people of Sardinia called, Sards.
Little did she knew that her trip to Sardinia would turn out to be lucky for her, as she fell head-over-heels-in-love with a local Sard, Beppe. Their love was not something filled with lust and passion, but their love was something pure and deep with intensity.
But Sard people are quite traditional and since it wasmodern values like getting married to a divorced woman was still not acceptable in the society.
Will they find each other in their arms? The author have spun a heart-touching and deeply moving love-story.
With her eloquent words, I too can feel the warmth of the Sards like Maria, and the rest. The picture of Sardinia that she painted with her words is vivid, lively and very visual. I was not only transported to the picturesque island, but I could sniff the salty breeze and the sweetness of the wine on my tongue.
I could even hear the birds singing and the waves crashing by the shore. The author did a great job on crafting the characters with depth and compassion.Short Stories by Frederick Forsyth (Study Guide): The Art of the Matter, Whispering Wind, the Veteran (English, Paperback, Llc Books, Llc Books) Be the first to Review this product Price: Not Available.
