Blog Tour: In The Shadow Of The Cypress by Thomas Steinbeck


Dr. Lucas, a Marine Studies professor has possibly com across one of the most exciting finds in his life. While reading a journal written back in 1906 by another Marine Biology professor, Dr. Gilbert. In this diary, Dr. Gilbert writes about the Chinese, who at the time were outcasts. When Dr. Lucas finds the part about some priceless pieces that belonged to the Chinese and the possibility that they were here first. The answer lies in the shadow of the cypress.

The writing is good and I liked that part of the book is written in a diary format. I think certain parts could have been shortened but other than that it was a good read.
