When Harry Williamson disappears from a ferry in the middle of the Irish Sea, his grieving family discover he’s been harbouring a secret which threatens to tear apart the very fabric of their history.
From the bustling Liverpool docks to a divided Germany via a Palestine in the grip of conflict, The Cypress Branches tells the epic tale of a love affair between an introverted merchant seaman and a beautiful, exuberant waitress, spanning four decades and encompassing some of the major world events of the 20th century.
With a sharp eye for detail and keen ear for conversation and dialect, William Thomas has painted an evocative historical backdrop to the intensely moving and funny story of an unforgettable group of characters whose lives and loves are challenged by a constantly changing and volatile world.
