    CYPRESS POINT was one my favorites Diane…and I say ‘one of’ because so many of your books have touched me in one way or another…The setting was what initially grabbed me and of course the story of the Healer and the Twins was brilliant in my opinion.
    My original hardbound copy sits proudly on my ‘Diane Shelf’ with all your others. Now that it’s coming out as a reissue, I think I’ll pull my original down and reread it over Thanksgiving…can’t wait to be taken back to the beautiful Big Sur Coastline once again. (-O:

    Cypress point was the first novel that I read
    and since this time I can’t stop looking for
    your novels. I just finished the bay at midnight
    And I just loved it. Continue your wonderful
    work for a long time Diane

    To those who are looking for an incredibly unique novel to read over the holiday, I highly recommend this book…you will be swept away, not only by Diane’s poetic writing but by the beautiful sense of place…and endearing characters who seem so real, you’ll forget that they are in a book and not someone you know…enjoy it and savor it this weekend.
    Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

    For some reason, the pub date suddenly changed to December 1! This book is giving me fits!

    Aaaaaaah, ok, now the confusion has ended! I was in Walmart yesterday and I saw The Shadow Wife and was excited for a new book, when I flipped it over I was confused to read the description of Cypress Point, my current read. Thanks for clearing up the confusion.

    I am a homebirth midwife and I have enjoyed the birth stories in Cypress Point and Secret Life of Cece Wilkes. Keep up the good work Diane!

    This is the first book I have read of yours so I didn’t even know about Cypress Point. I really enjoyed it. I also noticed what you said about healing. I also have rheumatoid arthritis & have suffered w/it for 18 yrs along w/other health problems. I have a daughter that lives in NC too so I felt the need to ask what you do for your RA & does the humidity in NC make it worse? I have always wanted to live by the ocean.

    kathy, I know some people’s RA is affected by weather, but mine is not. Sorry you also have it. I’m on Remicade and Arava and hope you’ve found good treatment for yourself. Glad you enjoyed The Shadow Wife!
