Publisher Comments:

A man with a painful past. A child with a doubtful future. And a shared journey toward healing for both their hearts.

It begins on the shaded town square in a sleepy Southern town. A spirited seven-year-old has a brisk business at her lemonade stand. Her latest customer, a bearded stranger, drains his cup and heads to his car, his mind on a boat he's restoring at a nearby lake. But the little girl's pretty yellow dress can't quite hide the ugly scar on her chest. The stranger understands more about it than he wants to admit. And the beat-up bread truck careening around the corner with its radio blaring is about to change the trajectory of both their lives.

Before it's over, they'll both know there are painful reasons why crickets cry...and that miracles lurk around unexpected corners.

Synopsis:

In a small town square of a sleepy Georgia town, seven-year-old Annie sits at her lemonade stand, raising money for her own heart transplant. At a nearby store, Reese flips through the newspaper, thinking about the latest boat he's restoring. As a beat-up bread truck careens around the corner, a strong wind blows Annie's money into the road. Reese looks up in time to see Annie's yellow dress fluttering in the wind as she runs into the road. What happens next will change both of their lives forever.

Richly atmospheric and evocative, with the kind of characters that move into your heart and take up residence, Charles Martin's new novel will resonate with fans of God-haunted southern fiction, and with anyone who enjoys a solidly crafted, heart-touching story.

Journal Entry 4 by wingkayjay33wing from Langley, British Columbia Canada on Sunday, May 24, 2009
9 out of 10

What can I say about this very emotional book? I loved it, I wanted it to go on for another two hundred pages, I wanted it to end so that these people who were almost real to me, could come to a conclusion, one way or another. I wanted a happy ending, even though I know that a happy ending isn't always possible.
Charles Martin could almost be a heart surgeon himself as he wrote so believably about his subject. I don't want to give the ending away by saying more, so I will just say that the book is about a little girl who needed a heart transplant and the town who rallied around her.

Interesting book filled with character struggles at many levels. Quotes from historically known writers' are incorporated into the text, making you want to ready those classics again. Medical drama, grief, and triumph out of the deepest despair. A great read. I couldn't put down the book until the last word was read.
