From the New York Times bestselling author of Beach Colors and Breakwater Bay comes this unforgettable story— reminiscent of Kristin Hannah’s beloved novels—of friends, loyalty, and love as three women, who are reunited in the idyllic beach town where they grew up, are forced to re-evaluate their bonds. Fifteen years ago, seventeen-year-old Vanessa Moran fell in love and lost her virginity but not to the same boy. Pregnant, desperate, and humiliated, she fled friends and family and Whisper Beach, New Jersey, never breathing a word about her secret to anyone. She hasn’t been back since. Now a professional Manhattan organizer, she returns to the funeral of her best friend’s husband. She intends on just paying her respects and leaving—though she can’t deny she also wants the town to see how far she’s come as a successful business woman. But her plans to make this a short visit fall by the wayside when her girlfriends have other ideas. Dorie, the owner of the pier’s Blue Crab Restaurant where Van and her friends worked as teenagers, needs help. Dorie’s roving husband spends every penny they make and now their restaurant is failing. Joe, the boy Van left behind without an explanation, has never stopped loving her. While he’s wary of getting hurt again, he also can’t help wondering what would happen if they took up where they left off. As the summer progresses and the restaurant takes on a new look, trouble comes from unexpected sources. For Van, this summer will test the meaning of friendship and trust—and how far love can bend before it breaks.

The book is an anthology of poems. Most of them were originally written in English, some, however, were written in Greek. The author translated all of them, so that each poem appears in both English and Greek. The poems reflect personal impressions and experiences of the author from his long and fascinating life in the United States and Greece. They express his deeper thoughts and feelings, his dreams and visions, his anxieties and his hopes. They are emotional, dramatic and often philosophical. The poems cover a broad spectrum of subjects from family, romance and sex, to war, tragedy and illness. What people say Cries & Whispers makes one shiver. Dr. Chryssanthous poems reveal the human condition, both the good and the awful, and encapsulate moments of sadness, quiet joy, love and humanity the cries and whispers. - Dr. Elaine Thomopoulos Managing Director of The National Heralds Books and Greek American Scientist inserts
