“The Whippanini Man” (published by iUniverse), C. David Priest’s new novel, shares one man’s struggle with a fearful manifestation as he walks back into his past, hoping to find his true self.
It is the winter of 1947, when C. David Priest, then five years old, first hears his aunt Rosalee tell the vivid and frightening story of the Whippanini man, a strange presence that only comes out when darkness falls. Later that same night after falling asleep, David sees the Whippanini man for the first time, forever transforming his innocent life.
As the spectral presence haunts David in his sleep, his aunt relays more stories that cause him to begin to question everything in his life – and all who have passed away before him, including a cousin reported to have looked just like David. But at night, nothing can stop Whippanini from invading David’s dreams, at least temporarily, and seemingly warning him of tragic events about to occur. As the years pass and Whippanini disappears, David wonders if the presence was just a figment of his childhood imagination. Little does he know that the Whippanini man is about to make his presence known again.
